Tiny winter resorts

Is peace and tranquillity more up your client’s street than apres-ski and socialising? Then recommend staying in a less-known resort – be it a small ski area or picturesque winter village. Switzerland has plenty of them to choose from.

Deep snow dreams

Ascend a mountain in quiet solitude, leaving only prints in the deep, pristine snow: the multitude of peaks in the Swiss Alps provide the perfect conditions for ski touring and freeride adventure. Ski and snowshoe tours in pristine landscapes are perfect for leaving the stresses of everyday life behind: the descent in powder snow is a true delight that might just prove addictive. The silence that accompanies the ascent is an unforgettable experience out in nature and even offers a chance of fascinating encounters with wild animals. To ensure the winter sports day out is memorable for the right reasons, knowledge of the weather, avalanche status and wildlife conservation areas is essential.
