Ig bi geng ume ufem Haslibärg Like Hasliberg for having such an open view facing south to the Eiger and for its frequent bluebirds due to the Föhn, don't like it for its frequent down days also due to the Föhn. Can't have it all .
But one of my favorites is Zermatt. The scenery is simply amazing.
What about you?


I really thought quicksand was going to be a much bigger issue in my life when I was little

Yeah Zermatt is so sick but since I live in Geneva I also go to Chamonix and Megève a lot.
There's also tons of really small ski resorts in France where you can hike a bit and find some really nice powder - not this year though

I'm in the Zurich area, so I do most of my riding at Engelberg, Flumserberg and Laax. I do have some powder spots at smaller resorts, but with the weak snowfall this winter I've only hit those spots up twice. I have friends in Leysin and Gstaad, so I'll go down there on long weekends. But this year's snowfall (outside of last week) has been kind of a bummer.

Been lucky last weekend and found nice runs with 20cm of fresh but at some spots, you hit grass right under that fresh. Very dangerous when crossing fences... laid down barbed wires lurk only softly covered by some snow... evil trip wires

Engelberg haven't been on Titlis in ages... grew up back there. There have been plans to connect Hasliberg with Titlis via Melchseefrut but I don’t know, if this will ever become reality.

Yeah Chamonix has been pretty bare but there have been one or two days with 20cm snow but all in all it really hasn't been a good season. I really hope we get lots of snow soon

For sure Graubunden in Switzerland, way quieter than the French side. Ive spent numerous seasons riding Laax. But for me the best area is the newly connected Arosa-Lenzerheide resort. It has it all. Great off piste, plenty of piste, great parks - and the lifts are being updated all the time. Its still pretty quiet. Visit in January or early March for the best snow with least crowds. Its probably the best up and coming resort in Switzerland I'd say.

Keep it quiet :-)
