Skiing in Switzerland
Skiing in Switzerland is a joy for all levels of skiers, especially for those at intermediate to advanced level who can find a vast array of challenging terrain, and even some of the toughest skiing in Europe. Snowboarders will also be happy, with great powder to be found throughout the season, as well as some of the best snowparks in Europe.
Ski resorts in Switzerland are generally beautiful. Whereas France is the home of the unattractive purpose-built resort, Switzerland is definitely the home of the quaint mountain village that has been transformed into a year-round resort destination. For this reason, Swiss ski resorts are among the most picturesque in the world, dotted with wooden chalet buildings and full of rustic charm.
Many regard Swiss ski resorts as highly expensive. Whilst this is in part true, often things are no more expensive than in top French ski resorts, and whilst the prices may be higher, the real difference is in the quality. From food in mountain restaurants to service in hotels, what you get for your money in Switzerland is generally top class.
