Skiing in Switzerland

Jump to last reply

Traveling to Florence early February (12 days) to visit our son who will be studying abroad there. Planning to spend 2-3 days in Florence with him primarily shopping as we have seen the majority of the must see sights. Then planning to go to Venice for a few days. From Venice we are hoping to travel to Zermatt to ski for a day or two. From there, take the Glacier Express to St. Moritz for more skiing (day or two) then off to Davos for another day or two of skiing. From Davos to Zurich for our flight back to the U.S. We hope to travel via train from city to city. Does this itinerary sound realistic? Mainly want to enjoy the mountains and ski some intermediate terrain (as we have been told that the European terrain is much more advanced than what we are accustomed to here in California/Utah/Colorado).

Another option I am considering is taking the Glacier Express to Davos and then just a day trip to St. Moritz. Any must see places in Zurich,as well as places to stay or restaurant ideas would be much appreciated as well.

Also, would it be most economical to purchase a Swiss train pass?

Thanks in advance!
