Most popular ski resorts in Switzerland

When it comes to the most popular resorts, Verbier and Zermatt reign high. Snow lovers from around the globe head to these for their high-end accommodation, glamorous atmosphere, outstanding Swiss hospitality and of course the spectacular skiing. Verbier is the place to ski deep powder and rub shoulders with the rich and royal before partying seriously hard when the lifts close. A stay in Zermatt is accompanied by some of the best scenery in the Alps thanks to the mighty Matterhorn – the rail journey here is one of the most scenic in the world.

Like Zermatt, St Moritz, Klosters, Davos and Grindelwald are members of the “Best of the Alps” group which officially recognises the world-renowned classics of the Alpine world. These are some of Switzerland’s oldest, prettiest mountain villages and have attracted visitors from around the globe for centuries.

Set on a lake and known as the “birthplace of winter sports”, classy St Moritz is known for its awesome nightlife, tons of gourmet restaurants and boutique shopping. The twinned resorts of Klosters and Davos are easily reachable by rail and great for families... Low key Klosters is ridiculously pretty and frequented by royals and celebs and cosmopolitan Davos has Europe’s biggest natural ice rink, great shopping and lively après. Grindelwald’s chilled atmosphere and dramatic setting make it another popular place to ski (the views of the Eiger and Wetterhorn are frankly spectacular).

After Zermatt, Saas Fee probably has the best snow in the country thanks to its high altitudes and skiable glacier. Nicknamed the 'Pearl of the Alps’, voted best ski resort in Switzerland, and second best in the Alps, this is one of the most popular resorts for families and the narrow traffic free streets and chocolate box chalets make this proper alpine village a lovely base for skiing the Swiss Alps.
