"Great chalet and location with skiing to match!"
Really loved the location and chalet, which was extremely clean and very well equipped, with ample space for ski's and boots in a large area underneath the Chalet. Short walk to the piste in the morning and we had sufficient snow to be able to ski right back to the door at the end of the day. The ski area is beautiful with plenty of good blues and reds and some challeging blacks, with other (Gstaad) skking available only a short drive away and on the same lift pass. The town of Zweisimenn has everything you would need and is a short walk away, or even shorter drive if the hill on the way back is a little too much!
This is our 2nd year which I hope says a lot, and we will certainly be going back again if only to try and keep pace with the kids!!
