Switzerland

Amazing snow. Sick freeride. Beautiful nature.

The destination

 

Cozy little villages and incredible mountain scenery provide the backdrop for an epic winter season in Switzerland. In a country known to be well-organised and always deliver high quality, the skiing is of course also in a class of its own.

Switzerland is the country that off-piste enthusiasts are flocking to, Verbier in particular is known to host several freeride competitions. For the experienced skier, Switzerland with its high mountain peaks offers a truly rewarding experience on close to endless slopes.

In addition to skiing, Switzerland is famous for its unique nature, chocolate and cheese – you don’t need much more you than that in life, right?

The Mountains

 

The ski areas in Switzerland are a kick-ass playground for both intermediate and experienced skiers and snowboarders.

Whether you want to do a season with the iconic Matterhorn mountain in your sights while at Zermatt, live the dream in the “pearl of the alps” in Saas-Fee, or head to the world-famous 4 Vallées (Nendaz, Verbier, La Tzoumaz), we’ve got you covered. The high mountains not only provide an incredible snow guarantee where you can, for example, in Saas-Fee and Zermatt ski all year round – they also of course provide lengthy and challenging slopes, everything from cruising blues to steep couloirs. In the heart of the 4 Vallées, one of the biggest ski areas in Europe, Nendaz is a dream destination for anyone wanting to seriously improve their technique. Linked to the 4 Vallées, Verbier and La Tzoumaz opens up for amazing terrain with its famous free-riding paradise with activities such as ski touring, heli-skiing and freestyle skiing on the Audi quattro funslopes.

The varied terrain and high quality training makes Switzerland a great place to develop your skills as a new instructor. For those that want a challenge, here you can also put your skills to the test in some of Europe’s steepest slopes, but it’s not just on the pistes in Switzerland that are brilliant. Explore its backcountry mecca, and you will understand why skiers and snowboarders year after year return to the Swiss Alps to get their off-piste adrenaline rush going.
