With views of the Matterhorn adding an extra touch of extravagance and alpine charm, Zermatt offers a real buzz both day and night, with links to the Italian border for the explorers amongst your group. Although Zermatt
hosts a fair selection of slopes for the less experienced, it should be noted that it is much more suited to experienced skiers rather than beginners.

Luxury skiing in Switzerland - The History
Switzerland is known for being one of the first countries to offer winter tourism, capitalising on its ideal location, stunning scenery and myriad of ski resorts. Understated elegance and serene surroundings have seen skiers return again and again, with first-class service, the highest quality food and drinks, and vistas and mountainscapes that are unmatched.
Switzerland has seen visitors from as early as the late 19th Century, with ski resorts still offering the same glorious views and stunning snowscapes today.
When is the best time to go skiing in Switzerland?

December - Switzerland at Christmas is a sight to behold - indulge in the Christmas spirit surrounded by alpine bliss, and even bring in the New Year in the mountains!
January - Perfect for plenty of snowfall and to brush away the January blues with quieter slopes.
February - February offers optimum snow conditions and is a perfect time for families to get away and make the most of the school break.
