Skiing in Switzerland

Skiing in Switzerland is something that everyone should do, after all, it was in Wengen that the British first put together the downhill skiing concept - by getting the Swiss to run their mountain railway in the winter.

In general, the Swiss mountains offer some fantastic skiing especially for intermediates and above. If you go skiing in Switzerland you will find superb scenery, great Swiss efficieny, up-market hotels and lots of chocolate box chalets. The resorts are also charming, having mostly started off as mountain villages.  In the past, the skiing has been let down by poor and antiquated lift sytems, but a lot has been done recently to improve this. And there is of course a certain historic charm about taking an old original cable car or train up the mountain. 

Beginners Skiing in Switzerland

Saas Fee is a great choice learning to ski in Switzerland. There’s a large nursery slope and plenty of easy runs to graduate on to.  Villars and Crans Montana are also a good options for beginners who want to go skiing in Switzerland.  Generally, the ski schools in Switzerland are of a high standard with the Villars and Swiss Ski School having a good reputation.

Intermediates Skiing in Switzerland

The skiing in Switzerland is particularly suited to intermediates.  Laax,Klosters, St Moritz, Davos, Wengen and Crans Montana all have good slopes for intermediates and if you are an adventurous intermediate then Zermatt is also worth visiting.

Off-Piste Skiing in Switzerland

Verbier and Zermatt are the off-piste skiing mecca’s  of Switzerland. The skiing for the adventurous in both these resorts will not disappoint and it’s definitely worth booking a guide. There’s also good off-piste to be found in Davos, Klosters and Engelberg but once again a guide is the best option.

Family Skiing in Switzerland

Car-free Saas Fee is a great choice learning to ski in Switzerland. There’s a large nursery slope and plenty of easy runs to graduate to. Wengen is also popular with familes as there is a nursery slope situated in the centre of town (snow permitting) alongside and ice rink and there is easy access to the higher slopes by the train. There’s also some great tobogganing .

Villars is the most convenient resort for a ski weekend in Switzerland because of its proximity to Geneva.  Engelberg is also a good choice as it is only a short transfer from  Zurich.  We can offer weekend breaks however to the following Swiss resorts: Davos , Engelberg, Laax and Crans Montana.
