There is definitely more on offer in the summer than in the winter in the Alps. From windsurfing on Lake Como (Italy) and cycling the Gross Glockner Road (Austria) to climbing ‘Via Ferrata’ in Saas Fee (Switzerland), the Alps are definitely the place to experience a wide variety of sporting activities. There is of course summer skiing in some resorts with high altitude glaciers, but day trips to cities such as Salzburg, Venice and Zurich are also highlights of the summer season.
Much like the weather in the UK, the mountains can be a little fickle at times. Yes it is possible to have four seasons in one day (even in mid summer), but typically the day time temperatures range between 20 and 30 degrees centigrade, although it does get higher in extended dry periods. You can weather permitting get a tan to beat any beach tan, any day!
