Just back from a weekend in Switzerland. My son Dan works for the Swiss Snowsports School in Hoch Ybrig which is a resort 1 hour from Zurich.

What can I say….a little gem of a resort! The resort is an easy drive from Zurich and and has some fantastic terrain. I was genuinely blown away with the freeride and offpiste opportunities.

There would be enough skiing here for a good weekend for all the family, in fact at the weekends it attracts a lot of ex pats from nearby Zug.

Village is small but quaint with a few traditional hotels and restaurants. We stayed in the Muller Post hotel.

The real beauty is the ease of access. Skied all day Sunday, back to the airport ( hired a car) for the 21.30 flight home, I was back in my house for 11pm UK time! A real weekend skiing destination from the UK.

I will be going back!
