What’s On In and Around Zurich this coming week

The forecast looks set for a fabulous time to go skiing and snowboarding in the mountains!  The snow is great following the recent snow showers and the sun looks set to shine.

Atzmännig ski resort

So where are you heading?  Klosters the resort with royal connections where you can recline in a deckchair by the palm trees and catch the rays, Davos where you can take a dip in a hot tub perched right in the snow after a hard day’s skiing or hard day’s networking at the World Economic Forum – or perhaps Flims/Laax where you can show off your latest snowboarding tricks at the snow park? Or why not explore one of the closer resorts like Atzmaennig, Hoch Ybrig, Pizol or Flumserberg?  If you want to check the conditions in nearby resorts take a look at our Practical Info page under Skiing.

Another possibility is the St.Moritz Polo World Cup on Snow which is on till this Sunday 27th January. This event is the world’s most prestigious Winter polo tournament – so if you’ve not been to one before, this is a great one to experience. It all takes place on the frozen lake there – lots of fun, excitement and colour! Click here for our previous post.
