Luxury ski holidays in Switzerland have a well-deserved reputation for excellence. Like the exquisite chocolate and high-end watches the Swiss are famous for, Switzerland ski holidays combine sophistication and indulgence; a potent mix for a memorable ski chalet vacation.
Nestled in the heart of Europe, the Swiss Alps boast some of the world’s most dramatic peaks, in addition to a selection of the most exclusive holiday destinations in Europe. Across our collection of Swiss ski chalets we feature a number of luxury ski resorts in Switzerland. Visitors can expect a variety of high-end ski accommodation, from luxury self-catered apartments in Zermatt to extravagant ski chalets in Verbier. For a truly exclusive experience, there are also the traditional palace hotels in Gstaad, and the lakeside mansions of St Moritz. Ski holidays in Switzerland are a fully rounded experience with gourmet mountain restaurants, raucous après ski, chic wine bars and elegant boutiques; in short, everything you could wish for on a luxury ski vacation.
Whilst skiing in Switzerland is undoubtedly luxurious, it’s also authentic. Many Swiss ski resorts enjoy a long heritage of alpine tourism which might explain how standards are so high – they’ve had centuries of practice! With roots tracing back to Medieval farming villages, this history can be seen in the traditional architecture and historic churches. Even today, many of the best mountain restaurants in Switzerland are family run and can trace a long lineage.
Skiing in Switzerland is arguably the highest quality skiing experience in Europe. The pistes are well-groomed, the lifts quick and generally state-of-the-art, the mountain restaurants are of high-quality, and the ski areas are typically both large and excellent. There’s also the added bonus that heli-skiing in Switzerland is permitted (unlike in France), and Switzerland boasts some truly dramatic back country in which to enjoy it.
Typically family ski holidays to Switzerland are very popular, particularly over the festive weeks when the chocolate box ski resorts of Saas Fee, Klosters and Zermatt really come into their own. A luxury chalet roofed in fresh snow, a crackling fire and twinkling lights on the tree all make for a Christmas ski holiday like no other. It’s also home to a number of large chalets, perfect for corporate ski trips to Switzerland. Seasonal ski chalet rentals in Switzerland are also growing in popularity as Switzerland boasts some of the best international schools in the world and it becomes increasingly possible to work from home.
Our portfolio includes the finest luxury ski chalets in Switzerland, located in the best Swiss ski resorts. A holiday to Switzerland has long been a byword for luxury and this certainly remains the case when staying in one of Switzerland’s luxury chalets.
