Skiing in the Swiss Alps

The Swiss aren’t quite as obsessive as the Austrians about skiing, however it is still the national sport and integral to the Swiss way of life, and alpine traditions remain strong. Swiss ski resorts such as Gstaad and Verbier two some of the most famous ski destinations in the world. Glaciers run along the skyline offering guaranteed skiing, with ski descents from glaciers often running down to the immaculate alpine villages.

Switzerland is renowned for it’s superb transport infrastructure and getting to, from and around their ski resorts doesn’t disappoint. An immaculate transport system ensures that your journey is as quick and effortless as possible.

There couldn’t be a more luxurious, funky and wonderful place to stay in the Swiss Alps than Sir Richard Branson’s Lodge in Verbier.  But if you’re more interested in a hotel offering superb luxury we would recommend Alpina Gstaad or Tschuggen Grand Arosa.
