Summer days in Switzerland


Summer in Switzerland.

Situated in the heart of Europe, Switzerland is not only a winter sports destination. Summer in Switzerland is awesome. Try and imagine sunny, warm days with lush green mountains and snow capped peaks and you're there.

Switzerland has an abundance of mountains, lakes, rivers and forests. All of which are there to be explored and enjoyed during the summer months. If you are still looking for your snowboarding fix then you can come ride with our summer camp program in Saas Fee or Zermatt / Cervinia. These resorts are home to high alpine glaciers which offer riding all year round. As much as these riding areas are a little smaller they still offer a decent amount of terrain and are home to awesome snowparks. Check out our summer riding program here SUMMER RIDING

Most towns and villages have outdoor swimming pools for everyone to enjoy. Lakes are suitable for swimming but be careful of cold water in the early part of the summer.

Switzerland has an awesome skateboarding scene and parks are to found all over the country. Alaia Bay is opening in Spring 2021. This new out door wave poll will be bringing surfing to the heart of the Swiss Alps. The wave garden can be found on the motorway outside Sion in the Valais region. This is only a 30minute drive from Verbier. Waves will vary in size and there will be something for all levels of surfer.

You can check out more details on the waves in the Valais here SURF
