Well, of course there are heaters for the trail but first off make sure you are insulated underneath them find a male that gives off a lot of heat we use this phenominum for our winter camping classes.
The second thing is there is no wild camping in Switzerland so why were the editors carrying so much stuff including tents. I carried far less than that for a month on the John Muir trail. I have hiked the Haute Route and around the Eiger and climbed the Jungfrou and their loads are ridiculous, more suited for Denali that the alps
