Mountains are beautiful in the winter but many non-skiers avoid them because they don’t do winter sports. If you are one of them let us introduce to you the world’s best winter destinations where you can experience winter at its best without ski slopes.
Switzerland’s rugged Lepontine Alps, 70 miles south of Zürich, is home to a new ski resort that’s adding a much-needed dose of style to the former military town of Andermatt it’s the Chedi. Start your day in the spa and wellness center with quiet moments of relaxation in a 35-metre indoor pool with views over the breathtaking mountain scenery of Andermatt. Then explore the scenery of the destination on a hiking tour. Over 500 kilometers of hiking trails can be explored from Andermatt. Walk along the high Alpine ridges and through remote scenery or climb across rock faces and on icy summits past solitary mountain lakes.
