Until oct 23rd 2022 everything will be open in the German speaking part of the Swiss Alps (school holidays): hotels, huts, mountain railways and gondolas. Areas in the Canton of Valais (Zermatt, Saas Fee, Riederalp, Crans-Montana) are usually sunnier and warmer than other alpine areas. A train ride from Basel to theses places lasts a bit more than 3 hrs (trains every 30 - 60 minutes).

All times are GMT -8. The time now is 11:23 AM.
