Going to Gstaad in January ). Was wondering if anyone can clear up the mess im in on what the pass covers?
Some sites say it covers transport between resorts, some dont
Also anyone what resorts are included in the pass?

P.S. Im talking about the "Gstaad Super" or "Super System" pass.

Many Thanks

You can catch the buses and trains for free on the ski pass.
you can also get half price at the sports centre and hallenbad.
Gstaad is one of the truly great places to ski IF the snow is good especially in January, as you will truly feeel you are the only person on the mountain

One of the greathing if you are a good skier is that you can ski down the mountain in any direction ( there are very few cliffs) the worst that will happen is you will end up on a road serviced by a bus.
If you time it just right with the time tables you can extend you lift system with the busses and get the best powder skiing available without a helicopter.

Thanks for that.

Yea I went there when I was a teen(Time flys). Back then they didnt have snow machines so the bottom of the slopes suffered from poor surfaces, but a friend told me about how they upgraded alot latly, and the new ski bus/train system seems to be great. The glaciers views are stunning and the fact NO-PACKAGE holidays cover it really means it's quite, it is really unbeliveable, people think Gstaad and then immediatly after they think its out of the budget, toatally not, I book bed and breakfast in a Sannermoser, was £450 for two of us, and the flights to Geneva were under £300 for the two of us, ski pass is around the 150 mark and boots and skies the same, add a return train journey from Geneva to Gstaad, around £900 and add in food, about £1100, the same as a holiday to the busy French resorts.
