Davos is one of the highest Alpine destinations in Europe, with a huge network of ski slopes that stretches from the Rinerhorn in the southwest to Pischa in the northeast, and has an elevation range of 1.560 to 2.844 meters. Six diverse ski regions make up Davos-Klosers, and each mountain has a unique character and ski terrain. It’s crucial to understand that these mountains are not all connected in a way that allows you to travel between them on skis. The many resorts in Davos-Klosters are connected by bus. The majority of skiers only select one mountain every day, so you may still enjoy the benefits of variety within a single vacation. There are numerous designated play areas for kids that are excellent for young children, and kids are everywhere.

Verbier has transformed into a glitzy winter paradise. There is no denying that this resort is pricey, but with its excellent skiing, international clientele, luxurious lodging, and fantastic pubs and restaurants, it is most definitely worth it. Verbier, which is located in the Valais canton in the southwest of Switzerland, is bordered to the west by France and to the south by Italy. It takes around two hours to get there by car from Geneva Airport, or you may take the train to Le Chable and then a gondola to the resort’s main area. With its incredible and convenient off-piste, Verbier appeals to both the serious skier and the more leisurely skier who like to cruise the blues before taking it easy on a sun lounger for the afternoon. With a renowned array of energetic pubs and clubs, it’s also the ideal location for après-ski enthusiasts. A winter playground for the wealthy and famous, Verbier is known for its expansive and diverse ski terrain, opulent ski lodging, and lavish nightlife. However, it may also be a fantastic destination for a family outing. Unusual for a ski resort, kids under eight ski for free (typically, it’s under five), and kids between eight and fourteen get significant lift pass discounts. Teenagers will adore Verbier’s sophisticated and glamorous atmosphere, and the ski region boasts terrain that is appropriate for all skill levels.
