The 5 Best Swiss Resorts for Your Next Ski Vacation
Switzerland is famous for its unbeatable alpine ski areas which are visited by people all over the world. With the country’s happy attitude, fresh mountain air and great ski conditions, Switzerland attracts anyone from families to solo travelers to expert skiers. These five charming resorts will be perfect for your next winter vacation.
Just 90 minutes from Geneva Airport, a ski shuttle can take you directly to Villars, a beautiful resort above the Rhone Valley. On the east side of Lake Geneva, you’re guaranteed snow on Glacier 3000 – a run for the more confident skier. There are 125 kilometers of pistes to explore before relaxing in an Edwardian-style chalet or experiencing the bustling nightlife. While this resort is better suited for intermediate skiers, there are plenty of off-piste opportunities if you want something a little more adventurous.
Saas-Fee is located in southwest Switzerland in a traffic-free village lined with quaint wooden cabins. From Geneva Airport, a ski shuttle service can get you to the resort in two and a half hours. In Saas-Fee, you’ll find excellent snowfall on 125 kilometers of pistes. There are opportunities for skiers at every level in all four sectors. The views are magnificent and the traditional architecture gives the resort an authentic feel.
Engelberg’s 1,000-kilometer vertical skiing attracts experts. However, there are 82 kilometers of healthy pistes for those less extreme. Close to Zurich, this resort is in the shadow of the Titlis Massif, which has snow all year round. From Geneva Airport, a ski shuttle service can transport you and your equipment safely to Engelberg in just three hours.
Located four and a half hours from Geneva airport, ski shuttle service to Davos is made possible by Shuttle Direct. While it’s a longer drive, it’s worth it for the 320-kilometer pistes starting from six sectors. It is one of the largest, oldest and most assured snow ski areas in Switzerland. This charming town has some of the best shopping, dining and recreation facilities in the Alps.
Arosa is a beautiful and secluded resort four and a half hours from Geneva Airport. Ski transfers can safely take you to the slopes where you’ll find 70 kilometers of pistes, excellent snow conditions and plenty of runs for both beginners and intermediate skiers. Due to the sheltered slopes, the snow stays late into the ski season giving you lots of choices when to visit.
