Skiing in Switzerland

Considering Switzerland for your next ski holiday? Many Swiss ski resorts have a special relationship with the British, who invented downhill skiing in its modern form in Wengen and Murren by persuading the locals to run their mountain railways in winter and so act as ski lifts, and by organising the first downhill races. Whilst France is home to many purpose built resorts, Switzerland is the home of the mountain village that has transformed itself from traditional farming community into year round holiday resort. Many of Switzerland’s most famous mountain resorts are as popular in the summer as the winter.

The quality of service throughout Switzerland is generally high, the trains run like clockwork, the food is universally good quality, and of course, staying in a VIP SKI chalet the service will be second to none.

Best ski resorts in Switzerland

Switzerland is home to two of our favourite resorts, selected for their charm, spectacular scenery and epic skiing – Zermatt & Verbier.

Why would we describe Zermatt as one of the best ski resorts in Switzerland?

Why would we describe Verbier as one of the best ski resorts in Switzerland?

Our Swiss ski resorts

We often say to Clients ‘everyone should visit Zermatt at least once in their skiing lifetime’. It truly is a magnificent town with great skiing on offer. Verbier is equally as enchanting, lying in a wide sunny bowl, with impressive views of the mountains that separate Switzerland with its neighbouring countries Italy and France, Verbier has plenty of Alpine charm.

Zermatt

A magical combination of nearly everything you could want from a ski resort, both on and off the slopes. Everyone must ski in Zermatt at least once in their lifetime. Few resorts can match its combination of excellent advanced and intermediate slopes, reliable snow, magnificent scenery, alpine charm and mountain restaurants with superb views and stunning views.

Verbier

Verbier is in an impressive setting on a wide, sunny balcony facing spectacular peaks. It offers extensive, challenging slopes with a lot of off-piste and long bump runs. For vibrant nightlife it is difficult to beat. We have 3 chalets in Verbier, all just a minute’s stroll from the Medran lift station, giving easy access into the 4 Vallees ski area.
