Ski Holidays in Switzerland
For many Switzerland really is an amazing place to ski in-stunning scenery, chocolate box chalets, and resorts that are a million miles away from the purpose built resorts found elsewhere., It does have a reputation for being expensive but it doesn't have to be. Train travel for example in Switzerland is relatively cheap. Read on to see what Switzerland can offer you.
Why Ski in Switzerland?
Quite simply Switzerland offers great mountains, some of the highest in Europe which in turn offers reliable snow and the most amazing dramatic scenery you will ever ski in in Europe. Switzerland also boasts the most advanced snow making equipment in Europe, although often not required, good to know it is there! But really it is the challenging mountains that skiers and boarders will love about it here.
Add to this the glacier resorts like Saas Fee which you can ski all year round. The ski schools are also excellent with English speaking instructors and good child care facilities. As you would expect from Switzerland everything is efficient and well organised. Service levels are good, so hotels and restaurants are all of a high standard.
