The Biggest Ski Areas in Switzerland

4 Valleys

Like Austria some of the Swiss ski areas can be a bit disjointed but if you are looking for linked skiing then the pistes on offer in the 4 Valleys will be perfect. The main resort of the 4 valleys is the world famous Verbier but with 410km of piste to be found in total in the area you could just as well stay in one of the surrounding villages such as Nendaz and have just have just as much fun.

Matterhorn ski paradise

The Matterhorn ski Paradise is main up of Zermatt in Switzerland and Cervinia in Italy. It offer roughly 360km of piste between the two resorts and the views on offer of the iconic Matterhorn peak are unrivalled. One of the stand out features of the area is the ability to do the Matterhorn ski Safari where you cover upto 12000m of altitude whilst never skiing the same run twice!

Porte du Soleil

Another area in Switzerland with a huge amount of skiing is the Porte du Soleil. Technically the Porte du Soleil spans both France and Switzerland but there are 650km of piste covered in lift pass. Not all of the resorts are fully linked via piste but there is plenty of skiing to keep you busy for a weeks on end. The main resorts to note for easy access to ski holiday accommodation are probably Morzine, Avoriaz and Les Gets which are all on the French side of the boarder.
