Plan on going skiing in Zermatt,Switzerland as I hear its got great summer skiing.Wnated to know if anyone has been there around June and that could give me an opinion on whether its worth it or not.

Hello Dave!
Sounds like a good time! But maybe you would get a better response if you post this in the 'Europe' thread. Good luck and have fun! :)

Hi Dave,

I never skied around Zermatt, but did spend 2 Summers skiing in Austria. I lived in Zell Am See (a great little town on a large Lake)and skied on Mount Kitzsteinhorn. Summer skiing is awesome. You can hang out in the evenings in a cool village and then ski in great weather in the Alps!

Don't know anything about Zermatt, but if you're not locked in to Switzerland check out Austria (the scenery while skiing is great). Just google Mount Kitzsteinhorn to get some Info.

One thing with Summer skiing is that you have to get up the Mountain early because as the day heats up it starts to get slushy. You'll see people skiing in bikinis, shorts, etc..
