It doesn't appear to give a country by country breakdown that I'm used to. Hope that helps.

I think you are being very pessimistic. The Swiss post will deliver the post on time.

But what happens to your parcel or letter in a country that has few snow ploughs, shuns winter tyres, and runs out of salt in December, is anyone's guess.

It's called grit for a reason in the UK - there's bugger all salt in it, which is why it doesn't work and they have to use tonnes of the stuff.

But you're right:

It'll get as far as the Swiss border no problem, maybe a day later if you're unlucky. In the UK (or Lithuania?) I would expect it to take an extra 3-4 days for normal Christmas post, and another couple for snow.
