In recent years, it has become fashionable for a growing number of Swiss and some foreigners to wander in the Alps clad in little more than hiking shoes and sun screen. Last summer, the number of nude hikers increased to such an extent that the hills often seemed alive with the sound of everything but the swish of trousers.

Like the sound of thighs rubbing together? <shudders>

I've done skinny dipping and lounged around in my tent nekkid with my lady friend and all that.. but to actually go out hiking sans protective clothing?
Around the areas where I have hiked and hike now-a-days... it's not a good idea.
Dunno what these people have to prove by doing so. Clothing not only hides the body but protects it as well.
Duh!

The idea of wandering in the snow tackle out, just doesn't seem smart to me.

I'd like to turn around in my Swiss seat while leading the line and give them all a puppet show. Thunder optional, but I suspect there will be rain during the performance.

I enjoy camping and all but then entire time in the woods my pants do not come off, I don't care how long I'm up there.

Wow ... you could pinch a loaf for a while, I suppose.

I can't consider nude hiking safe, especially in snow. A stroll ... now, that's a tad different ... but if you're in need of aggressive tread on your boots, you're in need of clothing.

:lookie:

Can you get frostbite on your wienie?

No, I go down the hill to where they have the facilities. Not while I'm up there though, this bear does not you know what in the woods.

I've ridden a bike naked. I imagine the road rash would be awful if one fell.

But people tend to be more careful if they're in the buff... Nude folks tend to focus on the immediate present and not do stuff like run through the thorny bramble with their twigs and berries flopping about, or frying bacon without an apron.

If anything, I think it would be a draw for Switzerland. Like nude beaches in tropical countries.
