If you’re a newbie, we would suggest Merible as over half the runs are for beginners, why not hire a car and visit the nearby attractions including boutique shops, bowling alleys and even an Olympic Ice skating rink.
If you’re more of a pro skier then Zermatt would be more suited for your needs. Be sure to explore one of Zermatt’s many attractions. Discover the mystical world of the Glacier Palace where impressive ice sculptures are exhibited or visit the Matterhorn museum, where they often arrange special exhibitions and cultural performances.
