Switzerland, perhaps, one of the few countries, which can be put on the same level with Austria on the quality of tourism business. The magnificent expanse of the Alps, occupy about here 70% throughout.
Empress of the Alps mesmerizing beauty of the icy landscapes. Everything here is steeped in Swiss precision and long-term exposure. Even snowy mountains reliefs have here a clear and neat edge bends. Swiss ski resorts are popular all over the world and do not need any introduction.
First Resorts, to which I would like to draw the attention of, town called Grindelwald (Берн), which is conveniently located right in the very center of the Jungfrau, at the foot of the Eiger, one of the highest mountains in Switzerland. The extensive resort with the possibility of skiing in seven areas of the Jungfrau area. Mountain peaks in some areas reach up to 4500m here. The resort is suitable for beginners, and extremals, true, basically runs for professionals here anymore, than those, who just got up on skis. In Grindelwald annual competitions Inferno Ski Race, which is attended by more than a thousand athletes. It was here in the Jungfrau region is one of the most dangerous routes in the world, Lauberhorn run with the rise to 2473m.
Zermatt (Wallis) one of the ten best ski resorts in the Alps, refers to the more prestigious, expensive and fashionable resorts. Because of the high altitude, the snow melts slowly here, so season in these parts last longer, than at other resorts. The mountain slopes and trails of the place designed for people, who know how great skiing, as well as for athletes and sports masters. For beginners, or just tourists, wanting to learn to ride, This resort is not suitable. Zermatt is literally full of difficult and even dangerous slopes. The height of some trails reaches 3900m.
Saas-Fee (Wallis) referred to as the "Pearl of the Alps". The resort is surrounded by thirteen ice peaks, up to 4000m. A place with a high concentration of a variety of slopes for all levels of difficulty. It is here that you can visit in the only revolving restaurant in the world, Located on a mountain top of Mount Mittelallalin.
And finally,, resort, whose name is heard even far from the skiing people in St. Moritz (Граубюнден). Resort, which hosted the Olympic Games twice. It originated such sports, curling, bobsled and sledding sports. One of the most unique places on the planet, the sun shines here 322 day of year. Every year the ski resort of St. Moritz gathers to himself to rest very versatile people from politicians and royals to ordinary tourists, able to afford to stay here. Height of the routes comes to 3100m.
Also, do not forget about the fact, that Switzerland is deservedly considered the birthplace of mountaineering. Conquest of the Alpine peaks - this is, first of all, struggle with their own fears and prejudices, and only secondarily - great way to improve the physical health.
In addition to the ski slopes, lifts and other attributes of active recreation, can not ignore the attraction of Switzerland, created by nature. Alpine Meadows, Pestryaev all colors of the rainbow, the snow-covered tops of mountains, frightening mystery of Icicle Creek, the famous Rhine Falls, attracting streams of crystal clear water, this is only a small part of the natural treasures of the Swiss, that are impossible not to pass indifferent. Relaxing the body, do not forget about the holiday spirit.
