I am amazed any one does it at 100USD per day or 500USD for a week. Better to go to a proper mountain resort like 4 Valleys at only 350CHF for 6 days it now sounds like a bargain. Plus the off piste is really up to the mark. And remember that Switzerland is expensive compared to France or Austria… Cost of labour is higher in Europe so I cannot work out the cost breakdown… When I skied 15 years ago in the USA it was not prohibitively expensive.

Factor in travel and food- the average person or family cant touch that. It is turning
into a sport of the well to do, admit it. That’s the full story!

There are other factors that also go into a lift ticket price including insurance and operational costs… neither of which are inexpensive, and that’s only two. It’s nice to rant, but be fair and give all the information.
