Bad news for hikers and winter sports fans: Climate change has a strong effect on the Alps because they're at a lower altitude than other mountain ranges, such as the Rockies.

However, owing to their rugged nature, severe and often unpredictable weather with frequent rain and strong winds, paths starting at (or almost at) the sea level and often very remote location (particularly in West and Northwest Highlands), they are more difficult…
