Few days ski in Switzerland w Kids age 3 and 5?

Hi All,

Looking to fly back from UK to Australia via Zurich in early Jan so we hoped to get a few days on the slopes. We are are beginner/intermediate level.

Have a romantic notion of a few days staying in a traditional snow covered lodge a few hours from Zurich. With the kids a quiet area is preferred.

If anyone can help with a suggestion, that would be great - budget Med-High.

Thanks very much!

January after the year-end holidays is a good time to go, you can leave your options open until the very last moment and see what the snow conditions are.

The choice is vast. Here are a few destinations I always go : Unterwasser in the upper Toggenburg . Stockhuette-Klewenalp above Beckenried on Lake Lucerne. The Pizol above Bad Ragaz. Flumserberg above Lake Walen (Walensee), Malbun in Liechtenstein, these are small laid back resorts within 2 hours of Zurich very child friendly and offer good skiing for beginners and intermediary.

Engelberg near Lucerne and Lenzerheide /Valbella near Chur are larger resorts, a little further away is Adelboden in the Bernese Oberland.
