    Elm is probably the best day trip for skiing close to Zurich. It has long slopes, never too many people and the staff are really friendly. Perfect for beginners and also good if you want to go downhill without disturbing anybody.
    It is affordable (pass and food).
    I can't say one bad thing about Elm. Been there twice already and will go back.
    A real gem.

    Elm....look out...Aspen.
    One of the best kept secrets in skiing.
    Inexpensive...solitude...and powder..... all day long.
    Courteous people....and the 'real" Swisse.
    All year round resort area...and only an hour from Zurich.
    Plus Vreni might even buy you a cup of coffee.... !

    Classic throwback old fashioned little Swiss resort.....just got in from skiing from 8am to 5pm {unbelievably they actually are open for 2 hours longer than most resorts, and in typical Swiss fashion, they stick to the schedule}. Spent the day soaring over logs, stumps, fences, small huts and barns and pretty much every other obstacle as all were covered in 50cm of fresh powder! And the sweet moment was the lift operator lifting the rope to take the last lift to the top at 4:20 {literally and figuratively....} although that lift was supposed to shutdown at 4:15 {most un-Swiss}....must have seen the big powder grin on my face.
