#1 VERBIER • Though particularly popular with its French-speaking clientele, all are still welcomed to Verbier with its network of cable cars and gondolas giving you convenient access to more resorts including Veysonnaz and La Tzoumaz.

S T. M O R I T Z #2 • Having more of an Austrian influence compared to the other resorts on this list, St. Mortiz showcases authentic medieval architecture including folkloric fixtures, hand-carved paneling, and local granite throughout.
• There are slopes for all levels here. • The Corvigilia, located just above St. Moritz is the most suitable for new or beginner skiers. • If you’re looking for more of a challenge then head over to Sils Maria (Corvatsh) or Pontresina (Diavolezza).

AROSA #3 • Relatively new to the scene amongst the ski resorts, Arosa is one of the most isolated and quiet vacations spots you’ll find. • If you’re a nature lover then escape here as you head in on the one the road that leads to town.
• Lined with alpine meadows as far as your eye can see, Arosa couldn’t been any more serene.

• Primarily tailored to intermediate skiers, it also feature a difficult course with a drop of (3,280ft) from start to finish.
G S TA A D #5 • Located in Saaneland, Gstaad is a cool option with plenty of action off the slopes as much as there is on them.
