Summary

Steeped in ski heritage, Switzerland’s iconic peaks and chocolate-box villages hold timeless appeal, while the verticals always get us excited.

Home to more peaks over 4000-metres than any other country in Europe, Switzerland’s ski resorts are backed by iconic mountains like the Matterhorn. With huge verticals, Switzerland ski holidays are popular for experienced skiers, while the well-planned pistes mean that all abilities can ski here.

With a rich heritage, the Swiss Alps are home to chocolate-box villages and prestigious towns like St Moritz. There are more than 100 well-known resorts here, so we’ve handpicked the best to make it easier for you. For mixed-ability groups, the modern resort of Laax is a great choice, while Zermatt’s outstanding off-piste is a must for heli-skiers - ask our team to share their stories with you.

Arriving by train or touring several resorts on the Glacier Express is worth it for both the incredible views and the ease of rail travel. Whichever resorts you visit, high Swiss standards, superb skiing and first-class infrastructure are guaranteed, while the food is major highlight - whether you dine in rustic eateries or Michelin-star restaurants, make sure you try a traditional fondue or a gooey raclette.
