Switzerland

In winter, and even at times in summer, Switzerland is one of the finest countries in Europe to go skiing. Although it is (way) more expensive than its alpine counterparts Austria, Italy and France, it offers great pistes, views, delicious food and the most beautifully located resorts. For example, Zermatt is situated in a picturesque valley beneath nine of the ten highest mountains in the Alps. Read through our reviews for Swiss resorts to help you decide on a place to ski in Switzerland.
