The Goms Valley in southwest Switzerland is an oasis of perfection. Carved over millennia by the Rhone Glacier, it is one of the least known and most scenic landscapes of The Valais - a winter sports paradise with an excellent snow sure record. The valley is guarded by majestic 3000m peaks, below which a dozen traditional villages still flourish. Each village is as individual as a snowflake - wooden buildings cluster around historic churches as if for warmth, and cosy trailside restaurants are full of cross country skiers relaxing on sunny terraces.
Village-to-village skiing is a real highlight of this holiday; alternatively you can hop on and off the pretty mountain train that circles the valley every hour (a 6-day rail pass is included in your holiday price). So that you can really get the most our of your stay here, we have arranged three morning lessons with professional local ski instructor, Kurt Hochstrasse. The ski school owner is Koni Hallenbarter who competed at two Winter Olympics for Switzerland, so you can relax in the knowledge you're in the very best hands!
