It’s not easy choosing where to stay in Switzerland, with such a fabulous range of ski resorts, mountain spas, vibrant cities and superb group holiday accommodation.
Before renting or purchasing ski equipment, ask yourself a few questions: for how long will you ski? Will you ski only on a vacation or also near where you live? Determining your projected commitment level will help you decide whether to rent, lease or buy skis, boots, and poles.
One of the first things to figure out when you, or your family, get the itch to try skiing is where to go. If you plan to ski in Switzerland, you are in luck because there are plenty of ski resorts to choose from!
Our vacation rental offers access to some of the best ski resorts in top Alps ski destinations. Here you can enjoy a fun ski vacation whether you’re headed for a double black diamond or the bunny slope.
Ski resorts are evolving. Last summer we had a meeting with one of the main officers for French tourism in the Alps and he explained that they had carried out a lot of research and found that people need more than piste in a ski resort.
Traditionally, staying in a ski chalet was rather regimented and in most cases it still is. Wake up bright and early to a huge breakfast, return around four or five to mountains of cakes and hot chocolate before a four or five-course meal in the evening.
Whether you’re looking for a secluded location, modern decor, extravagant furnishings, world-class service or a chalet with a twist, our reviews got you covered. We chose the best chalets across the Alps to carry out tried and tested reviews.
First of all, travel off-season. Check with the local tourism office to find out when their off-season starts when flying, either plan well in advance (ideally, 10 months to a year ahead) or at the last minute (two weeks or less before you leave) – these will give you the cheapest pricing.
Getting away from clocks, social media, and the clutter of everyday life can be a great way to “reset” your life. There’s something about that sweet, clean, fresh air that city life doesn’t offer.
