If it is traditional alpine charm that you are looking for, you needn't look any further. Traditionally quite expensive, the Swiss resorts are becoming better value for money.
There is year round snowboarding on offer in Saas Fee and Zermatt, both of which become brilliant, lively resorts in the winter.
You will find excellent freestyle facilities in a lot of the resorts here, and so many pisted runs that there is everything from gentle beginner runs to challenging blacks. You will find plenty to keep all abilities busy in the Swiss resorts, whether you are going for a few days, or a whole season.
