Switzerland is world-renowned for its iconic slopes and stunning scenery, making it one of the most sought-after locations on the planet for those planning skiing holidays. There are a huge number of resorts to choose from when it comes to booking a Switzerland Ski Trip, all of which have their own unique character and pistes to tempt beginner and veteran skiers alike.
St. Moritz is indubitably Switzerland’s most exclusive ski resort, with a global reputation for glitz and glamour as well as exceptional skiing landscapes. It’s situated in Upper Engadin and has 350km of pistes, with the main slopes found at Corviglia. It’s an expensive destination but it arguably justifies the prices it commands because of its impressive world-class facilities – including fast lifts – and unbeatable cross country trails.
If the extravagant feel of St. Moritz isn’t to your taste, the more reserved but nonetheless visually-breathtaking Wengen resort should not escape consideration. Intermediate skiers will feel right at home here, with enough in terms of pistes to develop their ability before they test themselves against trails that form part of the fearsome Lauberhorn World Cup race. Besides the slopes, the ski town itself has all the quaint charm you’d hope to experience on a Switzerland Ski Trip, making it ideal for those who want more from their holiday than the exhilaration of extreme sports.
Newcomers to the art of skiing would be well advised to take a look at the Saas Fee resort, which has a fantastic nursery slope for those thinking about taking to the skis for the first time. The region is home to an acclaimed skiing school that allows guests to hone their skills before attempting steeper pistes, which means it’s a great destination for holidaymakers with young families. The same can be said of Laax, which has a similarly excellent ski school and an abundance of beginner slopes that are ideal if you’re making your skiing debut. There are also extensive opportunities for snowboarding in the region – perfect for mixing things up a little during your time in the Alps.
