Switzerland: Wonderful Mountain Villages; Obligatory Cheese Fondue -

When you think of the classic winter sports scene you are thinking of Switzerland. It’s the high mountains and the image of tradition, quality and efficiency. Switzerland is proud of its unique nature - uniting four different people and languages in one country, making Switzerland the most diverse among the alpine winter sports destinations.

Switzerland has the reputation as the most expensive skiing in Europe, and perhaps the world, but it is often forgotten that hotels in French ski resorts can be more expensive than their Swiss equivalents. Always remember to shop around as there are deals to be had.

Most of the Swiss ski resorts are located in the regions of Valais, Graubunden, Central Switzerland, Bernese Oberland, and Eastern Switzerland. Some of the major ski resorts in Switzerland include: Verbier, Zermatt, Saas Fee, Gstaad, St Moritz, Laax and Davos-Klosters.

Don't forget to try the cheese: a ski holiday would not be the same without having had cheese fondue at least once.

The most convenient Swiss airports for skiers are Zurich, Bern, Geneva, and Basel. The railway system in Switzerland is one of the world's best and most interconnected. International trains from twelve countries go there on a daily basis.
