Choosing a Resort for Your Ski Holiday in Switzerland
Switzerland is one of the world's greatest skiing Meccas. Most resorts offer not only traditional accommodation and beautiful surroundings, but also some spectacular skiing. Verbier is a prime example, offering world class off piste runs, as well as some very challenging blacks.
Zermatt, another renowned Swiss resort, also offers great skiing for intermediates and experts. Dominated by the awesome scenery of the Matterhorn, Zermatt can be summarised as follows - stunning scenery; amazing mountain restaurants; fantastic and varied skiing.
Saas-Fee, the less famous neighbour to Zermatt, also has some spectacular scenery. With the resort spanning 4000m peaks to a range of dramatic glaciers, snow is pretty much guaranteed here. Saas-Fee, like resorts such as Wengen and Crans Montana, is more suited to beginners and intermediates than Verbier and Zermatt, but still has enough to amuse the more advanced skier.
