Switzerland is right up there with the best skiing in Europe. It has masses of uber dramatic alpine scenery, and beautiful historic mountain villages, many of which are traffic free. And of course it hosts some of the most impressive ski runs n the Alps.
There is a price to pay for this, literally, as fairly expensive prices have combined with exchange rate hikes meaning you are likely to pay more in the cheapest Swiss resort than you would in Austria, France or Italy.
Best for beginners
The pistes and the resort of Villars are both slow paced and low pressure. The nursery slopes are very gentle and once mastered skiers can graduate to long easy runs in picturesque scenery. climbing the mountain on a cog railway. 34 lifts and 100 km of piste, 90% of which is blue or red. a six day lift pass is CHF260.
Best for Intermediates
Davos is linked to Klosters by Parsenn; wide open red slopes above the tree line, perfect for building and developing technique and parallel turns. the runs dive down through the forest and into the valley below. there are 320 km of runs to choose from serviced by 55 lifts, with the bulk of the runs being red. a six day lift pass costs CHF342.
Switzerland may well be a bit more expensive, but you get access to some of the best runs in Europe. It's probably not worth the money as a beginner, but intermediate and above you can certainly get value for money via your skis and the scenery.
