Switzerland in the Summertime

Hey everybody, I am an intermediate rider who has boarded all over the US but now I am looking to expand my borders. Next summer I have planned to backpack around Europe and one of my stops is in Switzerland. I have already scoped out a couple spots (Grindelwald, Zermatt, and Arosa) and all look like great spots to shred. But I am worried about the time in which I will be there, which is summer. So what I am looking for is maybe a couple more spots that I should look into and as well as whether it would be practical to snowboard in the summer there.

Greatly Appreciated!

In the summertime you're limited to a few glacier ski areas, so it's basically just groomed cruisers... but sick parks!
The ones I know of are:
- Saas-Fee
- Zermatt
- Les Diablerets
Swiss summer glaciers - World Snowboard Guide
Saas Fee summer skiing guide
Zermatt, Matterhorn - Summer skiing and snowboarding on the glaciers
