Melting glaciers in the Alps are on track for their highest mass losses in at least 60 years, according to data seen by Reuters.
The area saw two early summer heatwaves and little snowfall last winter.
Zermatt, a Swiss mountain village which usually sees July temperatures in the twenties, has had recent highs of 30C (86F).
