Hi Mary! Well, it will be very different in March. There probably won't be snow in Lucerne; whether there will be in Lauterbrunnen is hard to tell. There will still be lots of snow on the mountains of course and you'll be visiting in the winter/ski season. It won't be hard to enjoy yourselves with activities other than skiing though! Some regular hikes can be made in the lower valleys, but winter or snow shoe hiking in the mountains is possible too. You can visit lots of viewing points by cable car and mountain train from both Lauterbrunnen and Lucerne and enjoy the winter scenery up there. Boat and train trips are another option, especially since you'll be having a Swiss Pass
. Consider the William Tell Express when coming in from Milan for example; it's a scenic start of your trip. If you add some back-up plans for bad weather, such as museums, you'll be good to go.
An entirely different option would be to visit the Upper Engadine. The valley floor is at 1600 metres above sea level, so you'll have good chances of snow down in the valley. If a winter experience is what you're looking for, you may give this region a try.
