Skiing in Switzerland:
There are countless resorts to check out while skiing in Switzerland, but, just like the mountains stateside, you’re apt to find some more crowded, more expensive, or more adventurous than others. Here is just a snippet of the best slopes in the Swiss Alps.
This place is on the pricey side, but it comes with exclusivity, zero traffic, and a view that’ll change your life! Nestled atop the Lauterbrunne Valley, the only way to reach this resort is via cable car. Once there, its chalet-style architecture and access to other mountains allows skiers to experience a different side of Switzerland. If you’re looking for luxury, then this might be the perfect spring break spot in Switzerland.
Known for its nightlife and challenging slopes, Zermatt also home to the extremely famous Matterhorn (the most photographed mountain). Beer-drinkers find this place cozier than home and parties can go to the wee hours of the morning. Plus, you can’t beat the skiing!
If a classic ski slope-look isn’t your thing, Arosa is the perfect place to experience spring break in Switzerland. Kid-friendly, less expensive than other resorts, and a modern look are just some advantages. The runs are diverse enough that skiers of most skill levels can enjoy anything from the intermediate trails to the expert routes.
Would you like to stay in a hotel that was built this year, and won’t be around come summertime? Iglu-Dorf is an igloo hotel, bar, and restaurant that is literally built and re-built every year. There are five locations across Switzerland that feature rooms for guests, bars, and restaurants. You’ll mostly find them on the mountain where skiers can take their breaks and enjoy a meal with beer while experiencing something more unique than a lodge.
Relaxing in Switzerland:
Thermal Baths and Spas
Give yourself a true European spa treatment! Soak your cares away in a thermal bath set in front of the gorgeous mountain peaks. Many are equipped with steam rooms, water activities, pools, and more. You can find them scattered throughout the country, waiting for you to rest and relax after charging the mountains for your spring break in Switzerland.
Titlis Cable Car
Situated in Lucerne, the Titlis Cable Car takes visitors to the Titlis Ski Area. The cable car also rotates 360° as you ascend, so you’ll see it all no matter where you sit! On top of that, non-skiers can also take a walk through the Titlis Glacier and spend time in an Igloo Village. Titlis is an ancient glacier filled with marvelous blue colors and sparkling ice crystals that you can explore up-close and personal. The view here makes it worthy of all the traveling you did to spend spring break in Switzerland.
Ice Magic – Interlaken
