I have an incredible opportunity. My wife has to go to Zurich for a week on January 30th and I get to tag along and ski all week. I am looking for advice on good resorts that I can day trip to from Zurich. I have been doing some reading and research and this forum seems to be the best place to get good, positive feedback. I have been skiing all my life and lived in Utah for 4 years so I am a pretty decent skier. Here are some questions I have:
* Should I rent a car to to the day trips or can I take trains/shuttles to most of the resorts?
* Should I rent my skiis in Zurich, or do most of the resorts have shops to do this. I have decided against taking my own skiis. Extra bag charges are to much. Any good ski shops to recommend in Zurich?
* What are the top resorts around Zurich? I have been all over J2ski website, but looking for some other opinions from locals or people who have skiid around Zurich.
Any and all opinions are appreciated!
