RESORTS

We've chosen some top ski resorts for you, resorts that offer vast amounts of snow-sure skiing and with plenty to do off the slopes

All of our resorts have been carefully selected for their high altitude and surety of snow cover from early season to late Easter.  All have accessible skiing at over 2000 metres, with some resorts such as Saas Fee having high altitude skiing at over 3500 metres.  In over 60 years of providing ski tours, Ski Gower have never had an issue with snow cover, and have never needed to relocate our Customers to an alternative ski area.

In addition to their altitude, another consideration for our resorts is the varied range of skiing to cater for all levels of skiing ability.  Resorts such as Davos offers 6 different ski areas and over 300 kilometres of skiing which is more than enough for a weeks skiing for any seasoned skier.

The slope operators in our resorts are also second to none, providing perfectly groomed pistes for both your safety and enjoyment.

This years programme is focussed on the following 3 resorts but we can also provide options for many other resorts such as Engelberg, Meiringen, Leysin, St Moritz, Arosa and Lenzerheide, Crans Montana and many more.

Each resort has plenty of options for affordable evening entertainment, ranging from swimming, to skating, bowling and the like.  There's plenty of restaurants for that pizza or ice cream evening too.  There are more details on the available evening entertainments on each of the resort pages.

DAVOS KLOSTERS

Situated in the Davos valley in the canton of Graubunden, Davos town is split into two villages, Davos Dorf and Davos Platz.  Davos Dorf sits at 1560 metres above sea level on the edge of the Davosersee, a 1.5km long natural lake at the entrance to the town.

Davos is the home of the annual World Economic Forum and is linked to the equally prestigious resort of Klosters which is easily skied by the end of a single week of instruction.

The resort boasts 6 different ski areas, Parsenn, Jacobshorn, Rinerhorn, Pischa, Schatzalp and Madrisa providing ample opportunity for skiing, snowboarding, snow-shoeing, cross country skiing and in summer, downhill mountain biking.

Fiesch

Fiescheralp is quiet and little known resort in the Canton of Valais, just a 3 hour drive or train journey from Geneva.  The resort boasts kilometres of easy blues and reds for beginners and intermediate skiers as well as some achievable but challenging blacks for the more advanced ski groups.

 

The slopes reach from Fiescheralp to Riederalp via a third resort, Bettmeralp.  The ski to Bettmeralp is easily achievable for beginners in their first week of skiing, providing the satisfaction of measurable progression and a sense on achievement.

Skiing starts at 2200 metres at the Fiescheralp plateau, so you can be sure of good snow conditions even during late season Easter holidays.

Saas Fee

With skiing up to 3600 metres, Saas Fee is one of the highest ski areas in Europe and is known as the Pearl of the Alps.  The stunning ski area is surrounded by the Mischabel mountain range, some of the highest and most impressive peaks in Switzerland, some towering to over 4000 metres.

 

Skiing is available all year round in Saas Fee due to its glacier ski area which means that your ski tour is totally snow-sure.  Whilst most European resorts will offer snow surety during February half-term, Saas Fee offers snow surety for your school ski tour from early December right up to the end of April.

The village is a mix of new, modern accommodation and old, very traditional mountain huts.  The resort is traffic free apart from the small and silent electric taxis that whisk you around the village..
