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 .

Weekend Skiing in Switzerland

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.

Picturesque Skiing in Switerland

If you love being surrounded by stunning peaks and dramatic views then the skiing in Switzerland shouldn’t disappoint. St Moritz, Zermatt, Saas Fee, Wengen and  Murren all offer some of the most beautiful skiing in the world.

Snow Sure Skiing in Switzerland

Saas Feeand Zermatt have the best snow records. St Moritz is also reasonable snow-sure, as is Engelberg which has good north facing slopes and high altitude skiing.

Skiing in Switzerland – Mountain Restaurants

Zermatt  is said to have some of the world’s best mountain restaurants so if you are skiing in Zermatt then make sure you take some time out to enjoy one of the many excellent restaurants. You can read about our favourite Zermatt mountain restaurants here.

Traditional Skiing in Switzerland

If you are looking to enjoy some skiing in Switzerland but also want to be surrounded by history and tradition, then head to Wengen  or Murren.  Murren offers challenging skiing in spectacular surroundings. Wengen is where the British first developed skiing with ski lifts and today the railways still are the main forms of uphill transport.
