Swiss ski resorts are amongst the most picturesque in the world;
they ooze Alpine charm, many have car-free village centres, there
are often some wonderful boutiques, restaurants and bars, and in
the Jungfrau region, there is a magical old cogwheel mountain
It was in Switzerland that the sport of skiing developed in the 19th
century, and also up and until the 1980’s, whereupon the French,
Austrian and Italian resorts started being competitive.
Taking the currency exchange factor away, Switzerland. In our
opinion, offers the best skiing in the world. The scenery on offer is
as dramatic as can be found in Europe, the resorts are mainly
charming (and not purpose built) traffic free towns, the restaurants
are wonderful, the apres can be as big as anywhere else and the
skiing is simply divine, whether that be corduroy pistes or epic
powder fields. .
There is no denying however that with the Swiss Franc’s strength
against the pound, the prices are high, especially in the big name
resorts. However, as well as the main spots, Glacius looks forward
to showing you a few secret gems, slightly off the beaten track,
that will blow your mind, not your budget!
Options vary from world-famous resorts such as Zermatt, to
smaller, less lively resorts like Wengen or the very underrated
Engelberg. Every resort is different, but magically unique in its own
way. All the resorts we feature however offer high-altitude, resorts
where snow is all but guaranteed.
Accommodation wise, the service and hospitality in Switzerland is
almost always incredibly efficient. Our carefully selected hotels
and range from traditional hotels which offer great value to
modern, 5* hotels with spa facilities and all other trimmings found
in the best hotels. Our chalets again range from mid-market
through to the wonderfully luxurious, as are the apartments.
Geneva Airport is situated in the west of the country near the border with France.
Zurich Airport is the main air gateway to the ski resorts of Switzerland, in contrast to Geneva airport, which serves mostly
France. Davos and Engelberg can be reached from Zurich airport in an hour.
Bern Airport is the main airport of the Swiss capital and is convenient for those, who plan to spend winter vacations at the resorts of Switzerland located in the south and east. Wengen can be reached from the Bern airport faster than from the overloaded Zurich.
Sion Airport is a small airport in the south-west of Switzerland, which is also known as “the gateway to Zermatt”. Also in an hour’s drive from Sion you can be in Verbier.
Getting around Switzerland
Train travel is by far the best way to travel in Switzerland. it is economical, the stations are clean and equipped with a variety of services, while the trains themselves are punctual, equally clean and comfortable. Although smoking is allowed in many public places in Switzerland, the trains are smoke-free.
Switzerland plays host to a number of
resorts which are just perfect for a seamless corporate ski trip. Given the ease of access from Geneva, we have tailored a wonderful itinerary at differing budget levels in Verbier.
Zurich is another excellent airport and provides access to Engelerg and Davos, both resorts being ones that (a) welcome weekend corporate breaks and (b) are located within an hour of the Zurich airport.
Crans Montana alos falls into this category! Glacius can prepare options for you in relation to the abovementioned resorts as well as many more.
Skiing is best done in a group and many Swiss resorts allow groups to make the most of their time away. Whether the group’s priority is raucous apres, charming chocolate box accommodation, incredible food, relaxation and wellness, or whether the group are learning/intermediate or advanced, we have the right Swiss resort for you. We have carefully selected resorts that work well with groups and look forward to presenting some options to you.
Glacius knows what it takes to make a group ski trip a success.
Swiss ski resorts are amongst the most picturesque in the world, which only adds to the magical charm of a family ski holiday.
