Clothes for G stand in August 2012

We plan to be in G stand Saanen during August 14 to 21st. What kind of clothes does one need? What is weather like at the base of mountains ? And on top of mountain? Does it rain? We want to walk with back packs, and don't want to carry unnecessary weight.

Hi veenakarkare1,

I'm in Gstaad now, and I can tell you that the weather is unpredictable --

Mornings are cool, and I wear a shirt and a polartek vest. In the afternoons, it's hot in town but still cool on the mountaintops. I walked today from Wispile to Gsteig, and I wore a shirt and a polartek vest. In town, it was too hot for all that.

It was clear for about four days and rained for two days. Today was cloudy. Prepare for a mix of all --

Have fun!
