Ski holidays in Switzerland

For crisp clean air and some of the most spectacular scenery you’re sure to witness, Switzerland is the perfect holiday destination. Located in Western Europe and land-locked, it’s bordered by five countries including Germany and France and Italy, all of which are common languages used throughout Switzerland. For that reason, the country has no linguistic identity but is instead defined and united by its iconic beauty and culture.

  • Grimentz

    You will fall in love with the chocolate box charm of Grimentz and want to return time and time again for the fantastic skiing. The sunniest of the Swiss cantons, Grimentz is a charming and unspoilt mountain village with stunning views of the Imperial Crown peaks of Weisshorn, Zinalrothorn, Obergabelhorn, Dent-Blanche and the Matterhorn from its pistes.

  • Les Diablerets

    Les Diablerets is in the French-speaking Vaud canton of Switzerland, about an hour’s drive from Geneva. The village itself has a wonderful ‘untouched’ feeling about it, with chocolate box wooden chalets and authentic restaurants and shops. The resort has three linked ski areas and is very popular with beginners and snowboarders as it has a great snow park.

Nendaz offers everything you could need for a ski holiday while still remaining a delightfully well-kept secret.

  • Saas Fee

    Saas Fee is a charming traditional mountain village in the Valais canton of Switzerland. With great snow conditions and high quality piste grooming, it’s one of the most reliable resorts in the Alps for snow. With access to the peaks at Saas-Almagell and Saas-Grund as well as a short bus ride to Zermatt, your lift pass goes pretty far with a ski holiday in Saas Fee.

  • St Moritz

    Well known for being one of the most expensive ski resorts in the world, St Moritz is just a few kilometres from the highest summit of the Eastern Alps, Piz Bernina and surrounded by the high peaks of the Engadine Valley. With immaculate pistes, glitzy shops, hotels, and bars, St Moritz is a resort to see and be seen in.

Geographically Switzerland is made up of three parts. The Swiss Plateau stretches from Lake Geneva in the south west up to Lake Constance in the north east and is a mix of flat and hilly landscape. Here you will find a good two thirds of the country’s population as it houses the main bulk of both business and farming industries, whilst in contrast the Jura region is predominantly a mass of ancient limestone dating back to the Jurassic period.

The Alps however are the most recognised part of Switzerland and make up over two thirds of its land mass resulting in this area being where most of the tourism industry is based. Imagine the Alps and all thoughts conjured tend to be spot on; snow-capped mountains, clear blue skies and deep blue lakes are just some of the valid clichés…

All the above play their part in making Switzerland the ideal location for an outdoor break. In the summer hiking and mountain biking are two popular pastimes whilst in the winter it’s all about the snow and with some of the finest resorts in the world it’s no wonder Switzerland is such a popular place with skiers and other winter sport enthusiasts.
