The Swiss Alps are one big outdoor playground, full of a seemingly unfair amount of the most dramatic scenery - but it doesn't end at the Matterhorn or pretending your Clint Eastwood on the Eiger. The Swiss resorts have some of the most picturesque old mountain villages, many being traffic free and year round towns making the resorts as much local hangouts as international destinations. Especially the smaller resorts such as Engelberg. Offering fantastic ski schools on impressive terrain and with immaculate pisted runs it's not hard to understand the draw to Switzerland.
It's true recent exchange rates have made skiing in the top Swiss resorts expensive and you will need deep pockets to ski the likes of Zermatt and Verbier but this is with good reason. They offer some of the most varied terrain, best après ski and unrivalled fine dining scenes with exquisite mountain restaurants coupled with diverse accommodation options - they are the pick of the Alps. These resorts are also some of the most popular leaving plenty of alternative resorts that tick enough of the right boxes to make skiing in Switzerland a tantalising prospect.
Whilst trying to work out which resort is best for a weekend break, it helps to know where they are and what they offer. Are you a fledgling skier looking for some gentle slopes and a great ski school? A family looking for quiet varied slopes for different ski levels and plenty of activities? Or a white knuckle enthusiast ready for the steepest chutes and untouched powder? Switzerland has plenty to offer aside from the headline grabbing big guns.
