General information
Gstaad is best suited to beginners and intermediates, but don't expect a cheap holiday here. The skiing is split into three distinct areas, although the lift system makes getting around easy. You will probably need to catch the frequent ski bus to start skiing, though. The resort doesn't boast many black runs, but there's some challenging skiing nonetheless. A big plus is easy access to the glacier at Les Diablerets. Opportunities for snowboarding are adequate, and cross country skiers are well-catered for.
