Where to Visit
There are so many different ski resorts in the greater Zurich area and the surrounding cities. But all of them are going to require a drive. A private car transfer service from Zurich Airport to the ski resorts in the area is going to be your best form of transportation, as it provides:
• More Space
• More Reliable Service
• Better Vehicles
• Less Cost
• More Relaxed Drive
Most taxis don’t have room for skis and other equipment. Most public transportation is unreliable. Most other vehicles are uncomfortable. And because navigating up these large hills can be difficult, renting a car is both less cost-effective and stressful for driving.
With that in mind, TSB is here to make sure you have the transfer service you need to get to the ski resorts that are best for you. And there are so many to choose from. Consider the following:
Transfer Service to Engelberg Ski Resort from ZRH
Engelberg Ski Resort is one of the closest ski resorts to Zurich, and with a private car form TSB, it will take you only about 70 minutes to get there from the airport.
It’s home to the famous Titlis glacier, the only publicly accessible glacier in the region. It’s a five-minute ride to the summit from Engelberg by aerial cableway, and it’s a breathtaking ride, with the cable car slowly rotating 360 degrees so you can see every part of the surrounding mountains. From this vantage point, you can also see the glacier cave, made of sparkling ice and located 20 meters below the glacier’s surface.
There is something to do there in every season, but this is especially true in the winter. It has a downhill run 12 kilometers long and covers an astonishing altitude difference of 2,000 meters.
For less adventurous or experienced skiers, not to worry: there are also 80 kilometers of runs that are more appropriate for beginner and intermediate skiers. Engelberg is a must visit resort if you are a free rider or off-piste skier, due to the high quality of its powder, and TSB is the best Zurich airport car service to Engelberg in the region.
Transfer Service to Davos Klosters Ski Resort from ZRH
Davos has many claims to fame as the highest town in Europe and one of Switzerland’s largest and oldest ski resorts. It’s located about two hours by car from Zurich, and features some of the best skiing country in Switzerland, with 320 kilometers of pistes over five skiing areas.
Most areas are best suited for intermediate to expert level skiers, but the different areas appeal to different types of people and the type of enjoyment they’re seeking during their ski getaway. If you’re a beginner, try:
These are also great for families with a variety of difficulty levels available on their slopes. Jakobshorn will likely appeal to the young and fearless, with lots of snowboarding, higher skill level “black” terrain areas, and hang-gliding and snow kiting take-off points.
For the skier who likes to stay out on the slopes for hours at a time, Parsenn, the largest of Davos’ ski areas, has all the long runs you could want to ski down.
Throughout Davos, skiers can ski down scenic and lengthy 12-kilometer slopes that wind down the mountains, through the forest, and into the valley. If you enjoy cross-country skiing, there’s plenty here for you too, with trails that follow the Fluelatal valley
If you want to start the day on one of Paresenn’s long runs and then finish the day cooling down at the shorter slopes at Rinerhorn, it’s easy to hop in your car from TSB, skis and all, and head on over. No need to wait for public transportation. If you want to take a break from snow sports, you can detour to the village of Klosters, the more traditionally decorate Alpine resort village in the valley of the area Davos is in.
Transfer Service to Flumserberg Ski Resort from ZRH
Only around an hour’s drive away from Zurich Airport, the Flumserberg winter sports resort is a great skiing day trip destination. No matter what skill level of skiing you’re at, you’ll find something to do here. There are 18 kilometers of cross-country ski tracks and 65 kilometers of pistes, and they also light up the slopes for “night rides” in the evenings for a unique view of the mountains that can’t be had during the day.
More challenging off-piste and freeride skiing is available, as well as the ski and snowboard tours that will take to unprepared terrain with the freshest snow at the resort. However, Flumserberg is also well suited for families, with lots of family friendly slopes and activities, including
• A Snow Park
• A Toboggan Run
• Ski and Snowboard Schools
With our transfer service from Zurich Airport to Flumserberg, your entire party can travel in relaxation and style directly to the ski resort without any delay and with an affordable cost.
Transfer Service to Hoch-Ybrig Ski Resort from ZRH
Home of the first Swiss ski school, Hoch-Ybrig is a popular day trip for skiers coming from Zurich as it’s only a little over an hour away by car. It is also typically more easily and quickly accessible by car than public transportation.
Hoch-Ybrig has a nice variety of activities for everyone, no matter your skill level. Children can play at the Kinderland Roggen in Oberiberg on rides like the “magic carpet,” which takes them a short ways up the mountain and lets them ski back down.
More adventurous skiers and snowboarders can go to the Ski Cross Park and Snow Park, where more expert athletes practice their skills, performing daring jumps and fun tricks. The area has played host for the Ski Cross and Alpine Skiing national championship events and has made several bids to host the Winter Olympic Games, so for winter sports enthusiasts, there could be few better places to be.
Cable cars take skiers and snowboarders to elevations up to 1,831 meters for scenic views of the surrounding mountains, like the peaks of Forstberg, Twariberg, and Drusberg. If you prefer to ski or hike around the mountains rather than ride, you can do so with ski tours, cross-country skiing, and hiking trails available in abundance.
With our private transportation from Zurich Airport to Hoch-Ybrig, you will be able to get to the resort comfortably and in style.
Transfer Service to Rigi Ski Resort from ZRH
Mount Rigi is rightfully nicknamed the “Queen of the Mountains” thanks mostly to the magnificent views – especially during the winter season. It is about a 50 minutes drive from Zurich airport and is a great place for beginner skiers and families, with lots of less intense, child-friendly slopes and activities in the multiple skiing areas.
The Scheidegg-Burggeist ski area is a good place to start for kids and their parents alike. It has five of Mount Rigi’s nine kilometers of alpine slopes for skiing and snowboarding, and ski lifts for children that transport them to the tops of the easy slopes. It’s also a popular starting area for people hiking on foot or snowshoe, ski tours, and cross-country skiers.
The area has one of the most scenic cross-country ski routes in Europe, with seven kilometers running along the former Scheidegg railway line from Rigi Kaltbad to Rigi Scheidegg.
The Rigi Staffel ski area is well known for having very short to nonexistent lines for the four lifts that take skiers to the tops of the easy to medium-hard level slopes, even during peak season. The slopes are also bright and sunny, facing the south, providing a dazzling ride down the mountain. Children who want to take a break from skiing can play in the play parks found in this ski area, which have “ski carousels.”
Transfer Service to Andermatt Ski Resort from ZRH
If you’re like many visitors to Zurich, you want to visit Andermatt, and the best way to do that is in a private car with TSB.
When you visit Andermatt, there are many different routes you can take. At 2,961 meters, Gemsstock mountain dominates Andermatt. The free-riding areas and off-piste couloirs, enhanced by the high quality and quantity of the powder, have made Gemsstock very well-known with international skiers. As of the 2017/2018 season, it has the largest ski area in central Switzerland, thanks to six brand-new lifts that link Andermatt with the Sedrun ski area and Oberalp.
Andermatt is a great place for intermediate to expert level skiers, as well as off-pisters. However, the new ski lifts are hoped to open things up more for beginners and other lower skill level skiers. The drive to Andermatt is about an hour and a half long and is very comfortable in one of the TSB private cars.
