The Best of The Best
— Switzerland's Top Rated SKi Resorts

Top Swiss Resorts for Skiing and après

Planning a ski trip to Switzerland? When it comes to winter sports Switzerland is pretty hard to beat with more than its fair share of spectacular mountain scenery, the best high altitude restaurants, and some of the most dramatic ski runs on the planet.

Sadly, with the poor exchange rates of recent years, Switzerland has become rather expensive and even in the cheapest Swiss resorts you are likely to be paying more than in the average Eurozone resorts of Austria, Italy, and France. On the flip side the premium costs add up to captivating traffic-free old mountain villages and runs which if travelling to a Swiss ski resort by private jet or helicopter means less time travelling to the slopes, less time queuing at the slopes, and more time on the Pow Pow (pronounced “paow paow”, slang term for fresh POWDER. Fine, dry, fluffy and lightweight; powder is the Holy Grail for ski worshippers).

We've compiled the results of skier and snowboarder-submitted reviews for a recent survey to find out which mountains claimed the top spot in each of the following categories:

  1. Overall Rating
  2. Pistes
  3. Nightlife
  4. Family Friendly

Using smaller private jet airports significantly reduces travel time with door-to-slope time reduced by up to 80%. If helicopter transfers to the ski resorts and back are utilised then skiers can save almost half a day on an average return journey, which adds up to more time skiing and less time waiting.  Add stress-free travel and the enjoyment of VIP luxury service to the equation and it's the only way to travel.

Cost-wise, whilst it's cheaper to fly commercial and waste hours in transit with the crowded winter sport enthusiasts,  splitting the cost of a private jet with friends, family or business associates could make private jet travel far cheaper than you realise. If you're flying on an empty leg flight then splitting the cost of a private jet often brings it very close to, or on par with, commercial airline prices. When you factor in the time saving element, it's a no brainer. Next time you're planning a ski break let superFLY give you a private flight quote. You may join the growing number of travellers who are pleasantly surprised.
