Gstaad, Switzerland
Surprisingly unpretentious, with extensive, pretty slopes.

european skiing gstaad switzerland

Gstaad is renowned as a jet-set resort, but for 'ordinary' holidaymakers, too, it is civilized, crowd-free and rustic, with beautiful scenery, quality hotels and excellent off-slope facilities. However, it's not convenient, snow sure or cheap.
