Gstaad - "Come up and Slow Down"

Tue October 28, 2014 by Marine Vermast


Perched high up in the Bernese Oberland is one of the most legendary and luxurious resort in the World: Gstaad. Surrounded by some of the most beautiful Alpine scenery the eye can witness, Gstaad is a magical, romantic car-free village with a picturesque castle as its prominent feature.

At night the Palace Hotel is lit up and the eaves of every luxury holiday chalet in the village are illuminated by fairy lights, creating a true winter wonderland. The resort is known for its high-octane luxury and attracts people from the highest echelons of society. Its reputation is international and celebrities from all over the world have been photographed playing in the snow with past visitors including British Royal Family, Madonna, The Beckhams… Celeb-spotting in Gstaad is a practical certainty if not a sport!


What if you’re more a dare devil like Cameron Diaz…? Can you still have fun without a pair of Gucci moonboots and a flute of Champagne? The answer is YES! Gstaad has a very young face that many often forget… As it is one of the highest Swiss resort, it benefits from excellent snow conditions and an amazing sunny position, combining to provide the perfect terrain for a Snow Park with all the trimmings… Gstaad’s strongest value is that it is an area devoid of the mass holiday groups. What you get here is crowd free snowboarding with miles of backcountry adventures and over 150 well prepared pistes covered by a single lift pass.

In Gstaad, snowboarding comes as second nature. It is a place that has an amazing snowpark where you can ride hard and feel challenged every day. The area has long allowed snowboarders freedom to roam its slopes, but it is the snowpark that is currently stealing the show with three main areas which are split by levels (beginner, intermediate and advanced) and a friendly and cosy chill out area for those well earned breaks. The beginner area allows novice boarders to try smaller versions of the most perilous modules and therefore allow a rapid progression. From rail to big air riders can try and adapt their level and progression and the park of Gstaad adapts itself in return to the every need a snowboarder may find. gstaad snowpark
