More about the ski resorts
Some love steep slopes, snow parks and powder snow. Others prefer quiet, wide and less challenging runs. It's good that every region in Switzerland has its own advantages, and they all cater to diverse needs and wishes.
The highest mountains and the longest ski runs in the country can be found in Valais. The Canton of Grisons boasts the largest and most diverse ski resorts. The Bernese Oberland region is home to world-famous ski resorts and probably the most beautiful locations for winter hiking and snowshoeing in Switzerland. Eastern Switzerland, with its pristine winter landscapes, is the perfect place for cross-country skiing. The region around Lake Geneva is characterised by nature reserves and Europe's largest network of ski resorts, the "Portes du Soleil". The Canton of Lucerne and the Jungfrau region are popular with freeriders and snowboarders because of their incomparable powder snow slopes in altitudes of up to 3,000 metres. As you can see: There's something for every taste!

Do the prices for skiing in Switzerland put a bit of a damper on your excitement? It doesn't have to be that way! With a few easy tips, you can save money while on winter holiday:
- Take advantage of package deals! How about a ski week including ski pass, sauna and childcare, or how about three nights for the price of two? Many hotels offer special discounts for guests from abroad.
- Some smaller and lesser-known ski resorts have comparatively low prices for day ski passes – for instance, Freiburg or Gstaad.
- Make sure you get the family bonus! Little ski resorts such as Andermatt or Bruson, but also the family-friendly Aletsch Arena, help you save money by offering attractive family discounts.
- Multi-day ski passes are usually a more budget-friendly choice than one-day passes.
- Move the dates of your ski holiday into the cheaper low season!
- Rent your skis online, for example at INTERSPORT Rent, and get a ten percent online discount until up to one day before pickup!
- In some INTERSPORT Rent shops, you can get a free rental helmet for kids when you rent your children's ski equipment.
