Completely true near the Jungfrau at 2000 meters elevation.
Mostly, not true, near Luzern, for example, or in the farm country east of Burgdorf (the Emmental.)
That aspect of the weather and changing seasons is heavily dependent on altitude. If you particularly want to do some hiking, consider trails around Lake Luzern, although some shady spots at higher altitudes near there could have snow left.
I asked specifically because of the issue you mention, to be sure that you were aware of it.
