Hi, I'm in the early stages of planning a ski trip to Switzerland. Curious if anyone has recommendations for a home base around Zermatt, St. Moritz or Verbier? Does anyone have a preference between those three? Would you get a car?
We're looking at 8-9 days with 6-7 days of skiing. Relatively descent skiers but never skied Europe. I'd prefer a place 'known' for skiing rather than a good nightlife. I don't mind driving and have driven in Switzerland (this summer) but don't want to drive every day. We'd like to ski something different every day.
My ideal situation is to stay in a village close (walkable or short ride) from a few good ski areas (not necessarily world renowned) and close enough to do a few days at Zermatt, St. Moritz or Verbier. Maybe take 1-2 days off skiing to do smth traditionally Swiss - not shopping/nightlife...plenty of that where we're from :)
