Ski resorts in Switzerland
Swiss ski resorts are famous for their traditional alpine feel. Unlike in other countries, the majority of Swiss ski resorts were not purpose-built, and instead have naturally grown over time, generally developing from quiet mountain villages. Despite this, you can still choose between different types of resort. Options vary from world-famous resorts such as Zermatt, to smaller, less lively resorts like Wengen or family-friendly Saas Fee. Every resort is different, but magically unique in its own way.

Snow conditions in Switzerland
With so many high-altitude and glacial ski resorts in Switzerland, snow is guaranteed in many of the large Swiss resorts. Switzerland is home to Europe’s largest glaciers and has the most peaks in Europe over 4000m which contributes to the fantastic snow records every season.
