The mountains tend to always be 10 - 15 degrees cooler then the flat lands. At high altitudes temperatures of less than -17.8* C (0* F) are not uncommon and mountain peaks are covered in snow most months. When visiting in winter carry something warm temperatures drop in the shade. The architecture is more suited to heat than cold. Layered clothing is always a must.
