Switzerland Ski Holidays
The home of downhill skiing and the first ever winter holiday packages, Switzerland skiing holidays will both charm and enthral you. In Switzerland, skiing is a high altitude mix of spectacular scenery and adrenaline-packed slopes, with a traditional ambience you’ll find nowhere else. We at Coop Travel have Switzerland ski deals that take you to some of the most popular resorts in Europe.
Unlike France’s purpose-built ski developments, Switzerland ski resorts are built around picturesque alpine villages offering a traditional, high quality level of service. They include world-famous resorts like Zermatt and Verbier, which have an extensive variety of trafitional Switzerland ski and snowboarding slopes, and endless off-piste attractions. Switzerland ski holidays in Zermatt take you to a charming, traditional town where transport is limited to taxis, horse-drawn sleighs and electric carts. Offering everything in the way of après ski enjoyment, Zermatt boasts some of the best skiing in Europe.
At the other end of the scale the lesser-known Switzerland ski resort of Grindelwald similarly offers a car-free environment, but on a much smaller scale. The neighbouring village of Saas Fee is only accessible by train along the spectacular Kleine Scheidegg mountain pass, or alternatively via the Männlichen cable car. Both offer a diverse number of skiing options, with particularly good facilities for beginners and intermediates. Like most resorts in Switzerland, snowboarding is first class, with tuition from instructors who speak excellent English.
A wide range of Switzerland skiing resort accommodations are available, to suit all budgets. They range from luxurious all-inclusive spa hotels in Lenzerheide, to traditional alpine chalets in Davos. Every resort, both large and small, offers a diverse range of accomodation, and most have lively apres ski entertainment.
For upmarket Switzerland skiing resorts at low cost, we at Coop Travel recommend you look at Switzerland ski deals in Flims or Davos, where you have easy access to the billionaire playground resorts of St. Moritz and Klosters.
