Authentic Swiss Ski Experience

29/07/2018

Savognin is one of those off the beaten track ski resorts that continue to surprise me.

A traditional Swiss ski resort, its older style lifts provide an authentic ski holiday experience that one simply cannot get in many other places.

With 80km of piste trails and a longest run of 11km over its 1500m of skiable vertical, Savognin's stats are not to be sneezed at. Whilst it lacks any truly steep terrain, the off piste is broad & includes tree skiing. Powder can lay unsullied for days after a snowfall due to the lack of freeriders. Snowboarders & the unfit may not like the surface lifts heading up to 2,713m Piz Cartas, but you can't please everyone, or can you?

In the same category as the excellent Brigels or St Luc Chandolin, Savognin might be a little harder to get too, but is worth the journey. Ski here when heading to St Moritz for a completely different Swiss Alps ski experience.

*Note that since this review was undertaken, a new gondola from the resort base has been installed, marking a massive improvement for access up the mountain. You can see our thoughts on the pros and cons on the Savognin overview page and also see our European ski resort ratings page regarding how we score it compared to other skiing areas.
