With a large number of lofty pistes, some up to 3’600 metres above sea level, you can always be sure of snow. Most the slopes that do not lead over the […]

Nendaz, Switzerland

Nendaz is located in the heart of the Four Valleys ski area, which includes Verbier on its fringes. It is less famous, more family oriented and some call it “thinking man’s Verbier”. Probably a bit more of a genuine community with its 6,000 year-round residents. It has a handful of north-facing, very wide slopes to […]

LAAX, Switzerland

LAAX and neighbouring Flims share a ski area that is one of Switzerland’s biggest, whether you look at overall dimensions or piste km.

All is packed in […]

La Tzoumaz, Switzerland

La Tzoumaz is a compact resort and with north facing slopes it holds the snow better than nearby Verbier, even though they are the same altitude. You will find both red and blue slopes on the La Tzoumaz side with easy access into Verbier. Great place if you are looking for a more family oriented village compared to […]

Disentis, Switzerland

The two ski areas of Disentis and Sedrun, with the latter being part of the Gotthard Oberalp Arena, offer 200 km of slopes.

Anzére, Switzerland

Anzère will never rival nearby Verbier or Zermatt for vastness or motorway skiing, but is becoming  increasingly appealing especially for families. Most of the village has become ski-in/ski-out, thanks to a “moving carpet” that links to a button lift towards the telecabine, which used to be a 10-minute walk from the square’s furthest reaches. The car-free village […]
