It appears the summer hiking season may be over for another year, as many Swiss alpine resorts saw fresh snow over the weekend.
A cold front saw temperatures fall last week and over the weekend, with many places in the lowlands experiencing ground frost.
With the snow level dropping to 1,500m and heavy precipitation in many parts, on Monday many alpine resorts woke up to fresh snow on the ground.
Winter is coming, how to resist? tweeted Verbier, its webcam pictures looking distinctly wintry.
Laax, St. Moritz, the Jungfrau region and Crans-Montana were among the other resorts whose webcams showed snow on Monday.
So does this mean the definitive end of summer? Unfortunately, MeteoSuisse thinks so. Writing on Sunday, the federal meteorologists compared the month of September this year with 2016, and found it was unlikely we would see a return to warm weather.

Global warming causes global cooling. It’s all predicted.
