Welcome to MySwissAlps, lzzaaz85!

The Wilhelm Tell Express and the Bernina Express would be scenic routes to travel towards the south. If you check the links I inserted, you'll get to see all details on both trips. Sample itineraries can be found at www.myswissalps.com/pl antrip/doityourself/sa mpleitineraries, and general planning tips at www.myswissalps.com/pl antrip/doityourself/co mposeitinerary.

Snowboarding should still be possible around ski resorts that are situated high enough. Examples that would fit your trip from north to south are Andermatt and St. Moritz.

The standard route - through the Gotthard Pass - is one of the most scenic train rides you can find.
