If you're looking for a lakeside alternative as a base for your next ski holiday in Switzerland, try the upmarket resort town of Montreux.  Famous for its annual Jazz festival and stunning Geneva properties, this picturesque location nestled at the foot of the Vaud Alps is an ideal starting point. Another reason to vacation or live in Montreux is its mild climate

From here, you can easily access several outstanding ski resorts in Valais, an hour away by rail or road, or use the panorama trains (Golden Pass Line) to visit the magnificent resorts in the Bernese Oberland and Central Switzerland.

If you don't want to venture too far, head to the nearby ski resort on Rochers de Naye, a spectacular mountain in Caux which provides spectacular views of Lake Geneva. If you need a break from the slopes, the invigorating walk from Vevey to Castle Chillon is a memorable experience. 

As an international traveller, getting to Montreux is easy; Geneva International Airport operates flights to most parts of the world and you can board the Montreux train from the super-efficient railway station inside the airport.
