29 Jan The Only Way is Down on the Swiss Slopes
Kickstart your January by booking an energising and adventurous break. Ski holidays to Switzerland are great whether you take to the slopes every year or you are a complete beginner looking to start a new interest. Late winter is the perfect time to go away when the snow still lingers on the slopes of the beautiful Swiss peaks.
From resorts such as Zermatt and Verbier to Grindelwald at the foot of the Eiger there is plenty of variety on offer. You can even follow in the footsteps of royalty and celebrities at Klosters and St Moritz. Special offers such as two for the price of one on lift passes can frequently be purchased to make your holiday even more affordable.
Wengen is one of the most beautiful Alpine villages in Switzerland and it is also traffic free meaning those who really want to get away from it all will love the solitude. Stunning views across and down the valley, combined with some wonderful classic architecture make your ski backdrop truly breathtaking. In addition this is a great place for those who are just starting out on the slopes.
Arrive by mountain train and choose from an expanse of pistes, or try some of the other activities on offer including ice skating, curling, walking and tobogganing. Village nursery slopes are easily accessible while there is also a beginners park at Kleine Scheidegg make this the ideal location for those new to skiing.
Verbier is one of the premier resorts in French-speaking Switzerland boasting plenty of nightlife and casual yet creative cuisine. English style pubs are everywhere but there are also many French cafes for those looking for something a little more authentic. A network of cable cars and gondolas connect you with more remote satellite resorts. Athletes love this resort since it offers many difficult ski challenges, great for the more advanced levels.
