Thanks for joining MySwissAlps! As for your questions:
1. The availability of the Swiss Card in Switzerland is limited to the entry points of the country, but Zurich Airport is one of them so you can get it there. You can also get it online and have it shipped to your home address, collect it at the airport (just follow the signs to the rail station) or have it shipped to your hotel in Switzerland (only convenient if you stay the first night in Zurich). All the options are listed in the Price section of the Swiss Card page: www.myswissalps.com/swisscard/price. So you can see for yourself what you like best. If you buy online you can pay in your own currency and make use of this discount.
2. That's hard to say. In the mountains, one needs to be prepared for anything. Early October could be Summer-like in daytime, but it can also be rainy and cold. At the high peaks it will surely be chilly or freezing. The key is to dress in thinner layers so that you can adapt to the temperature throughout the day. Also have a light raincoat available. The Jungfraujoch page explains more about how to prepare for that trip.
Did this help you out?
