Skiing in Switzerland
For many Britons, Switzerland is the home of skiing. It was here, in the early years of the last century, that Britain’s Henry Lunn organised the world’s first package ski holiday to Wengen ski resort. His son, (later Sir) Arnold Lunn arranged the world’s first ever ski slalom race across the valley in Mürren in 1922.
The word Switzerland is synonymous with service; the trains and ski lifts adhere rigidly to pre-ordained timetables and hospitality and service in hotels, bars and restaurants is nothing if not efficient.
The Swiss resorts are amongst the most picturesque in the world; rarely purpose-built, most have developed from quiet, mountain villages and whilst these attractive resorts are now buzzing with life, they have retained their traditional Alpine charm. Many have car-free village centres, where pedestrianised, cobbled streets are lined with boutiques, restaurants and bars, and in the Jungfrau ski region, some resorts are still accessed via the old cogwheel mountain railway.
