Ski resorts in Switzerland

With a wealth of glaciers and gnarly steep runs, Swiss resorts have a lot to offer intermediate and advanced skiers. Mile upon mile of spectacular off-piste make these areas great for backcountry skiing as well as ski touring, and recent changes to ski areas have meant that there is generally now enough to keep beginners happy as well.

Down in the valleys Switzerland excels by offering enchanting resorts that retain a feel of the original Alpine farming villages that they once were. The scenery is often stunning too, with imposing mountains such as the Matterhorn. The more well-known Swiss ski resorts are associated with high society and money but many of them are in reality more concerned with skiing and hiking in the mountains than posing in fur coats. Swiss ski resorts are also much more welcoming to British tourists than many other European ski resorts.
