Gstaad Resort Attractions
Snow golf is an unusual way to play the game that should appeal to any golfer looking to be able to say they’ve tried something different. The course is laid out for a few weeks each season on the Wispile above Gstaad (Berghaus Wispile, Postfach 251; +41 (0)33 748 96 32) where a ’white fee’ of around 60 Francs is payable in course fees and for a set of winter tees, and three balls. There are four or five different ways to play the game including stroke play, match play, foursome, best ball or ‘scramble.’
Shopping in Gstaad
A good choice for those who love to shop, Gstaad’s main street has an eclectic collection of enticing stores, although most are stylish boutiques rather than in-your-face souvenir shops. The resort reckons it has 100 or so shops but that includes those in outlying villages so Gstaad itself perhaps has half to two-thirds that number. But if you’re looking for expensive jewellery or Swiss watches it’s as good a place to come as any European capital with nearly a dozen shops selling just that including Jean H. Weber (Promenade 44, Chalet Central; +41 (0)33 744 96 30; ) and Oro Vivo AG (Untergstaadstrasse 3; +41 (0)33 748 10 66; ) but those who don’t even own a black charge card will find the full selection of ‘regular’ stores to cater for all their holiday needs here too.
