    I’m going on the WW dep Jan 2.

    Yes its going to be cold, bring lots of layers and some thermals just in case. Plus waterproof jacket and shoes, beanie/gloves/scarf etc.

    As for bed gear, the hotels will be centrally heated and can get rather dry. I don’t like to sleep in heavy pjs, so I’m bring some light 3/4 pants and a singlet top. I’d rather use and extra blanket.
    Before I’m in bed I’ll wear extra clothes over my pjs (basically a travel tracksuit type thing).

    If you wear Winter pjs to bed normally, then bring them, that would be my advice Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Oh and if you are checking last years temps for comparison, I’d look at 2006 instead. Last year was uncharacteristically warm…

    I guess that will depend on the weather :P

    I would guess that, yes, at some point you will.

    At the very least there will be snow on the mountains in Switzerland (there always is).

    And its more likely you’ll run into fresh snow at rest stops than in the city where it gets trod on and melts.
