Snowboarders and skiers in Switzerland are truly blessed. They can hit the slopes even in the summer. Zermatt boasts the highest summer skiing in the Alps and Europe's largest snowpark, located on the Klein Matterhorn. Enjoy 36 square kilometers of snowfields between the altitudes of 2,900 and 3,900 meters.

Also, check out Saas-Fee with its 3,600 m Allalin glacier—a perfect spot to find some snow in summer. The Sara's Fee resort is nestled between 18 peaks of 4000 m, and, according to the words of one of the photographers, the revolving restaurant beneath the Allalin is a wonderful place to watch the summer skiers.
