Hi mahee_37

This depends on the weather we will have the next few weeks. For sure there will still be snow in higher elevations (for exemple Mt. Titlis), propably less on the Mt. Rigi area - www.rigi.ch - and Klewenalp - www.klewenalp,ch -.

Actuelly there is a lot of snow on higher elevations which will hopefully slowly melt in March. On elevations of 100 meters there is just a little bit, there it will be OK.

Lucerne will most propably be snow free then.

You can follow the weather forcasts on www.meteoschweiz.admin.ch/web/en/weather.html

Corection to my previous post: Little snow lies until 1000 meters (not 100), sorry

There is a snow park working all year round on the glacier of Mt. Titlis - see www.titlis.ch - and there are summer bob runs in different places (for exemple www.hochstuckli.ch and Mt. Pilatus (Fräkmüntegg) - www.pilatus.ch/de/pilatus-aktiv/sommer/ -.
