The ski season is approaching. Soon it’s off to ski or snowboard boots and down the slopes. All kinds of winter sports enthusiasts meet there. From the novice skier who causes traffic jams to the adrenaline junkie who leaves you at full speed. Since skiing and snowboarding skills can vary greatly, it is best to clarify with your friends what type of winter sports you are or are before you head out into the snow.

adrenaline junkie

The slopes are your home. You heat down the slope with boards that are as fast as possible. Your motto is: the steeper, the better. You only allow yourself a break on the chairlift or in the mountain restaurant to fill up your energy tank.

free spirit

You struggle to get out of bed early in the morning before a winter sports day. Because that’s the only way you have a tiny chance of being able to draw your tracks on a completely untouched snow slope. Equipped with skins or snowshoes, you climb up the mountain before gliding down the freshly snow-covered slopes.

Winter sports are expensive. That’s why you secure the best ski pass deal and the cheapest accommodation months in advance. Eating is only at home or sandwiches you have brought with you. You probably already know the SBB Snow’n’Rail offer and use it to save a lot on your ski trip.

Three good reasons for Snow’n’Rail

Sustainable on the go
Anyone who travels with SBB is energy-efficient and climate-friendly on the road and runs on electricity, over 90 percent of which comes from hydropower. Every year, Switzerland avoids the emission of around 5 million tons of CO2 by rail, which corresponds to ten percent of Switzerland’s total emissions. From 2030, SBB wants to be climate-neutral on the road.

Simple and convenient
You can buy your ski pass online with just a few clicks and load it onto the SwissPass with your public transport ticket. So you can go directly to the turnstile in the ski area.

Good for the wallet
With Snow’n’Rail you benefit from discounts of up to 20 percent on the ski pass – whether for one, two or six days. In addition, you save 15 percent on equipment rental at Intersport Rent and benefit from discounts on public transport trips in the low season.

perfectionist

As a perfectionist, you have a special feel for your skis or snowboard. No wonder: you prefer to try out new material every day in order to eventually find the perfect combination of boards, bindings and shoes. You talk shop with the sales staff about the sidecut, the torsional rigidity and the curve radius.

Beginner

You’re not quite sure on your skis or snowboard yet, but you’re all the more motivated that it’s finally going to work on the red slopes this year. You occasionally fall over at the button lift or make the queue for the chairlift longer because your skis get caught on the turnstile. But don’t worry: Every beginning is known to be difficult.

Ski mom or ski dad

You would actually like to whiz down the slope and enjoy the powder snow, but your children are still learning “pizza” and “chips”. So you spend the ski day on the practice slope. Things are progressing rather slowly at the moment, but don’t worry: in just a few years your children will be leaving you behind.

naturalist

You care less about driving fast or your technical skills than about the mountain panorama. You enjoy the view from the different lifts and keep stopping for photos on the slopes. You also allow yourself plenty of breaks, after all you are not on the hunt.

Après skier

When the slopes close, the fun doesn’t stop for you. You look forward to aperitifs, parties and lots of mulled wine. But be careful: If you overdo it with the party in the evening, you will pay the price in the morning. After all, you are there to ski.

Baggage-free with the train to the ski area

The following applies to all types of winter sports: With Snow’n’Rail you and your friends (or family) can hit the slopes cheaply and sustainably. Even better: If you take the train, you don’t even have to lug around that annoying luggage. Because you can easily have it delivered to your ski area (and back again) within 48 hours with the SBB luggage delivery service. So have a good trip!

Snow influencer

What’s the point of a ski holiday if nobody knows you were there? You’re not just here for fun, you’re also here to show off. Your Instagram followers are always up to date. They envy you the breathtaking view of the snowy mountains. For your friends, this means: constantly taking photos and waiting while you shoot selfies.

Fashion Queen (or King)

Ski gear doesn’t win a beauty award. Let’s be honest. That’s why you rely on unusual fashion pieces in which you still look cool. You stand out from the crowd and show style. Whether your legs and arms freeze is irrelevant to you. If you want to be beautiful, you have to suffer.

acrobat

You fly meters high through the air and show off your “flips”, “spins” and “grabs”. Choice of «backside», «frontside» or «switch». Outsiders are often only amazed – at the incomprehensible vocabulary and your daring leaps.
