The Igloo Village Hotel in Zermatt offers a truly unique experience.
Surely, during some winters, Switzerland feels a lot more like Siberia. It is not uncommon to see temperatures hovering in the double-digit negatives. And frequently, blizzards cut will cut off entire valleys from the outside world.
But more often than not, the winter weather in the Swiss flatlands is rather mild. We hardly get any snow and often wonder: was this it?
