The cool Alpine air is the primary attraction that draws you like magnets towards the highlands of Switzerland in the summer months. The higher you go the colder it gets. For the sporting crowd, the Alpine winter with its inviting valleys and snow-laden hills is home to some of the most famous and luxurious ski resorts in the world. The days are clear, but make no mistake, it is cold!
