Gstaad is really really pretty. It's got a castle, which the whole town is built around, and at night they light it up so that it looks even more like a fairytale village. Between the Alps and the Bernese Oberland, it's also snow country, with 250kms worth of trails and more than 70 lifts to help you explore them. The best cover is up near the Diablerets glacier, and it can be patchier – you sometimes have to travel round between slopes for variety, but the lift tickets cover a lot of ground.

More for the intermediate market than experts.
