Ski Holidays Switzerland

Ski Holidays to Switzerland

Switzerland has been synonymous with skiing since downhill skiing became a sporting pastime. It was at Murren that Arnold Lunn created the Kandahar ski club in 1924 to promote ski racing and since then Switzerland has done much to expand the sports growth. Switzerland exudes charm mixed with spectacular scenery - it doesn't get any better than the iconic peaks of the Matterhorn and the Eiger. Indeed Bollywood directors use Switzerland for many of its productions owing to this magic scenery.  Swiss chocolate box resorts are the immediate images that beginners concour up when thinking of their first trip and switzerland doesnt disappoint. 

For beauty there are so many resorts but Saas Fee, Zermatt, Murren and Wengen maybe top the list. Beginners may favour Arosa, whilst experts will gravitate to Flims-Laax, Verbier, or Zermatt. Intermediates will love these resorts too plus Crans Montana and Klosters. For nightlife then Verbier and Zermatt are apres ski meccas but dont forget your credit card! Switzerland is not cheap and Snowfinders cannot see a reversal for this in the next few years.
