Ski Holiday in Switzerland with Esprit Ski

The combination of charming, traditional villages and guaranteed snow are a winning formula for skiing in Switzerland. Home to some of the best known ski resorts, Switzerland also has lesser known villages with equally impressive slopes and fast, queue free lifts.

The Swiss resorts have also become more welcoming to families in recent years. Many have a host of special offers to encourage the little ones to ski and the Swiss Ski Schools have an excellent reputation for teaching children with English speaking classes.

One of the prettiest resorts in Switzerland is Saas Fee. The location is spectacular as it is surrounded by thirteen peaks culminating in the high glacier snow bowl of the ski area itself.

It is a perfect choice for families as the village is traffic free and the Esprit Chalet Hotel is located right at the foot of the slopes. The main lifts and children’s ski area are all within a 250-300m walk so no time is wasted in getting on to the slopes which offer a great variety of skiing to suit all abilities from cruisy blues to testing black runs. The beginners’ ski area is located at the village level.

There are also a number of activities that families can enjoy together besides the skiing such as visiting the famous ice-grotto or excellent leisure centre, and of course tobogganing, always a major hit with children.
