Local ski resorts opening dates

One of the greatest pleasures of living here is that we are surrounded by great ski resorts. With snow on its way, here are 17 local ski resorts for you to choose from.

A quick tip if you are planning on going at least 20 times skiing or snowboarding this winter then you may want to look into a Schneepass Ticket, this ticket is valid for 14 local ski resorts and costs CHF 1130.- More details here.

If you are a one ski resort kind of person then note that most ski resorts offer big discounts if you buy your winter ski pass before November 30!

In order to help you decide where to go here are the beginning of season dates for some of the local ski areas, just note that the resorts seem to have become a lot more flexibe and opening dates seem to be dictated by the amount of snow, so do check the resort’s website before you go there especially beginning of December:
