Hi, I am travelling with 2 kids to Lauterbrunnen on 29th May with a visit in the morning to Schilthorn. Being from a tropical country, the kids are excited about snow. Can they play around in the snow on the slopes or is it that at Schilthorn we can only be at the restaurant Piz Gloria?

Also, can somebody advise if there are sunglasses/ski glasses available for rent for kids at Murren or Schilthorn? Would ski pants for kids be available too?

You can walk out onto the snow at the Schilthorn.

The sport stores in Murren generally rent clothing and equipment but I'm not sure if they rent sunglasses.

I shouldn't worry about the ski wear, just a couple of layers of trousers. There's not a big area they can play in, it gets too steep to go far. Plenty of snow for a snowball fight though. Possibly carry some spare shoes up the mountain with you.

Sun glasses are useful throughout the trip, not just up Schilthorn. I'm very surprised that you can't get sunglasses easily from shops in Mumbai. It's the same sun in Mumbai and Switzerland. You are closer to it on Schilthorn so go for something with good protection, and then wear them often.

Have Fun
