One of the amazing things in Switzerland is the proximity and easy access to world class ski facilities. Within a one hour driving distance from Zurich there are many great locations where you can ski/snowboard.
This weekend we visited Stoos. The village of Stoos is car free and can be accessed only by a funicular / cable car.
World’s steepest cable car
The funicular is the world’s steepest and is a must try. A round trip ticket costs 11 CHF with a half fare card. If you plan to ski, a day pass costs 50 CHF and also includes a round trip cable car ticket.
Pro tip: but your ticket online on the Stoos website and get discounted prices
Affordable and accessible ski slopes
Once at the top, it’s easy to rent ski equipment right outside the cable car exit and is very reasonable – 50 CHF for a full day.
Within 15 min we were on the practice slopes and later to Fronalpstock. There is a restaurant at the top with amazing views of Lake Luzern and the surrounding mountains
