Ski Resorts in the Swiss Alps

Winter activities in Switzerland are not strictly bound to the huge resorts of Zermatt, St. Moritz or Davos. If you look for a bit of privacy, intimacy but still loads of fun, smaller ski resorts in the Valais Region are not to be missed.

This photo-essay should provide you with some visual inspiration on what to do in the Swiss Alps this winter.

I am curious as to how you magnae to get people to agree to posing for your photos. What do you say when you approach them? I would love to know. And I agree, I love the red accessories. It was only yesterday that I bought myself some red gloves and a hat for our winter here in Australia.
