For those that are looking for a more natural setting, you’ll want to ski Bernase Grindelwald. It seems more like an actual city and not one that was purely created as a tourist destination. After a long day of hitting the slopes, there is still fun to be had. There are plenty of restaurants, bars and discos. The accommodations are more reasonably priced then other places, and often is used as a base camp to travel to other areas as they are a mere railway or cable car away.
One of the most elegant and far pricier ski destinations is Gstaad. This is where the jet setters of the world ski. The town also hosts music festivals and when you have your après ski boots on there are plenty of places to shop. With an amazing number of ski runs here, most are not too difficult, and are great for beginners and intermediates. That is for Swiss Alps skiing though, which aren’t your typical ski runs.
The most picturesque and beautiful ski destinations is Murren. It is the quintessential Swiss ski area. It is perched on a rock ledge overlooking the valley. The resorts have chalet style architecture. One of the pricier resorts but offers some of the best experienced skiing in Europe with some of the finest powder. You also get stunning views of the dramatic surrounding mountains and valleys.
If you are skiing in the Swiss Alps, wherever you pick will be amazing without a doubt. You can have an après ski drink in the lodge with the who’s who of the world, or a less worldly adventure. It’s all about the powder, the experience and the jaw dropping stunning panoramas of the Swiss Alps.
