With the Diavolezza glacier near St Moritz and the Titlis glacier above Engelberg both concluding their 2016-17 ski seasons on the last weekend in May, and Saas Fee not opening for its 9 month long 2017-18 season until July, this is only one choice for June skiing or boarding in Switzerland, but it is a good one: Zermatt
