First there was the Dolomiti Superski Pass in Italy, then there was the Zilleertal Superski Pass in Austria and now, not to be outdone, there’s to be a Swiss Superski pass for 2012-13.
Well actually it’s just the ‘SuperPass’ so snowboarders need not feel alienated.
The new pass merge the ski lifts and runs of Villars, Gryon and Les Diablerets including the famous Glacier 3000, with those of the ski areas around Gstaad.
Altogether this new “Superpass” will offer 116 skilifts and 420 km of piste, but unlike with some of the giant ski area amalgamations that have emerged, particularly in Austria, in recent years, separate local versions for the Villars region only or the Gstaad region only will continue to be offered. In either case children aged up to 9 ski free.
The size of the new area is such that it will be among the 20 largest areas available in the world.
