So, we’ve done the hard work for you. With thousands of acres of skiable terrain to explore, these are the destinations you need to visit on your ski and snowboard trip to the Swiss Alps.
Located at the base of the majestic Matterhorn, the beauty and bounty of Zermatt are rivaled by few. The slopes serve up impeccable skiing conditions 365 days a year. And it’s one of only two locations in the world to boast such a statistic. Its world-class lift system, endless terrain, and activities off the slopes are just a few reasons many consider Zermatt the best ski destination in Europe, possibly the world.
If you’re looking for a luxurious ski destination with a wide variety of terrain, St. Moritz is the top place to visit on your ski trip to Switzerland. Often regarded as the “Saint-Tropez of winter,” the après ski options in St. Moritz are just as enticing as the snow. So when the sun sets over this luxurious mountain town, the day is really just beginning.
Verbier is one of four combined resorts in its area including Thyon, Veysonnaz, and Nendaz. Together, the ski area offers more than 250 miles of ski runs accessible my almost 100 lifts. Skiers and snowboarders alike will appreciate Verbier’s freeriding and off-piste challenges. The resort also boasts stunning accommodations and several dining options.
Nestled in the Davos Klosters, Parsenn is the largest and most up-to-date of Davos’ five resorts. The resort offers 35 downhill ski runs ranging in difficulty, so both beginners and more advanced riders will enjoy hours of fun on the slopes. Parsenn also offers more than a dozen restaurants and a lively après ski scene.
While Saas-Fee may not be the top destination for expert riders considering its lack of off-piste acreage and challenging terrain, beginners and families are sure to enjoy the mild slopes. Thanks to its high altitude, snowfall at Saas-Fee is always excellent in both quantity and quality. The resort also tends to be less crowded than others in Switzerland.
