If you've decided on a winter holiday in Switzerland, you really have a great choice of ski huts, bars, casinos and party locations on hand. You also have various relaxing and sporting opportunities available : use of a sauna, massages, fitness centres, heli skiing, horse-drawn sleigh rides, ice skating, tobogganing, squash, badminton and bowling are just a few examples. Most of the larger ski areas also offer a varied programme of activities, including torch runs, ski races for guests, ski tours and night time snowshoe hikes. Every ski area has a wide range of restaurants pubs and snack bars available, where you are sure to find something to suit everyone's taste. When you think about food and drink in Switzerland, the first thing that usually comes to mind is famous Swiss cheese. Therefore it's not surprising that cheese fondue and Raclette originate from Switzerland. You will not find a ski resort that doesn't offer both these specialities. Switzerland is also world-famous for producing top quality chocolate. Further Swiss specialities include Rösti, Bündnerfleisch (a type of dried meat), Zürcher Geschnetzeltes (veal stew from Zurich), carrot cake and swiss muesli.
