Switzerland is a notoriously expensive destination, but Koenig is skilled at finding great deals and working within a range of budgets. As a ski enthusiast, she knows the local slopes inside and out, including ritzy Zermatt; the more low-key town of Andermatt, high up in the Gotthard pass; and Wengen, a car-free village accessible only by train.
Special booking: Koenig can arrange a night in an igloo, a quirky, fun experience that’s available in Switzerland from mid-December until mid-April in locations such as Zermatt, St. Moritz, Gstaad, and Engelberg. Some ice-house villages even have saunas and outdoor whirlpools.
