Ski, bike, walk, eat, fun, extreme sports...these are the Swiss Alps
The Alps span some 200 kilometres (125 miles), at an average altitude of 1700 m (5576 ft), and cover nearly two thirds of Switzerland's total surface area. The snow line begins at 2,500-2,800 meters (8,200-9186 feet). There are 48 mountains which are 4,000 meters (13,120 feet) or higher and about 1,800 glaciers.
The jagged borders of Switzerland contain dozens of worthwhile ski resorts. Probably the best ski resort are St Moritz and Verbier.
