The best Swiss ski resorts for families, within a day trip distance of Zürich. From small local hills for absolute beginners to bigger resorts with good ski schools and lots of blue runs for practicing.
You’ll love this big ski resort in southern Switzerland with wide sunny slopes, great facilities for kids and beginners, challenging terrain for the rest of us, and a view of the longest glacier in the alps.
See all the fun winter activities for families we tried in this beautiful alpine resort in western Switzerland, including night sledding, thermal baths, a winter walk, a crazy toboggan fun park and of course, lots of snowboarding.
Great ski resort for kids and beginners with its free magic carpets, drop-in ski lessons, nice wide blue runs for beginners, as well as lots of advanced terrain for parents. Kids of all ages love the freestyle and fun park, with all sorts of jumps and obstacles.
This small resort is perfect for beginners and families with different ages and skill levels with multiple affordable ticket options. It has a magic carpet for beginner skiers and sledders. It’s close to Zurich, so possible even on a Wednesday afternoon.
This smaller local resort has plenty to keep all skill levels happy. We like the wide groomed pistes next to open powder fields, so beginning and advanced skiers can ski parallel to each other. The enclosed snow garden is particularly nice for beginners.
We loved our ski day at Parsenn, a popular ski area in the Davos Klosters region in southeast Switzerland. Parsenn is great for advanced beginners and above, with lots of wide open blue and red runs with plenty of room to make your turns. Parsenn is close enough for a day trip from Zürich, but probably better for a long weekend or ski holiday.
We loved our ski days at Hasliberg, with plenty of open terrain for all skill levels and epic panorama views across the Berner Oberland.
One of the biggest ski resorts in central Switzerland, with lots of interesting terrain. The resort layout can be a little tricky for beginning skiers so here are some tips to help families have a good time there.
We love family skiing at Pizol for its wide open runs, easy beginning runs, large off-piste areas and, of course, the big views. It’s easy to access without mountain driving and the family discount makes it unusually affordable.
Our family likes skiing at Stoos in Central Switzerland for its gorgeous views and wide open slopes, with terrain suitable for all skill levels. They offer a very affordable family ski pass. For non-skiers, there are beautiful winter walks and a long sled run.
