14 years ago, January 7th 2009 No: 1 Msg: #59197  
Hey guys, I have never been to Switzerland but am planning on spending about a month here snowboarding in the coming winter. Can anyone tell me how much for 4 weeks accommodation at either a good hostel or decent hotel... plus the price of lift passes for boarding (or does anyone know where i could get a season pass from?!) If you can give me a rough estimate on how much to put away in either SF or Aussie $$ That would be awesome and much appreciated!!

Thanks heaps, and happy travels!

It depends on your room. As an example, there is a hostel in the Laax-Flims-area http://www.laax.ch/.

A bed costs from 26 - 50 Swiss Francs in double room or dormitory, plus half board 23 a day:

A season costs around Swiss Francs 1080! Maybe if you ask your hotel, you might get a special ticket.

Not counted are the costs of living during the day.

Of course there are cheaper ski resorts in Switzerland, especially the smaller ones. Just have a look in:
