The Swiss Alps can lay claim to possessing some of the best ski resorts in Europe, with mythical destinations, like St Moritz, Verbier, Champery and Zermatt just a few to choose from. Each of these places have their particular charms and benefits, and it’s a question of knowing what you're after before making your choice.
Champery is the most secluded and exclusive of the destinations, with celebrities often choosing to retreat there to enjoy its wonderful skiing and scenery relatively undisturbed. Verbier is famous for its off-piste slopes as well as its trendy bars and excellent après ski and represents a great option if you're looking to make the most of the evening activities as well as those of the daytime.
