Ski Resorts in Switzerland
Smack in the middle of Europe and at the heart of the soaring Alps, Switzerland is skiing writ large. Easily accessible from major gateways including Geneva, Zurich, and Milan, the infrastructure here is a dream, while the resorts themselves retain an atmosphere and ambience that can be lacking in some other Euro mega-resorts.
Big names like Zermatt, Andermatt, and Verbier promise big, challenging terrain as well as easier groomers for newer skiers to find their feet. Better still, there's a universe of undiscovered backcountry stuff to discover, mostly ignored by piste-bound European crowds. And don't worry too much about Switzerlands oft-quoted expense: sure, prices can be high, but it's not exorbitant as compared to other European options, plus you get the scenery and an old-fashioned Alpine experience that's pretty much priceless.
