he Fribourg region lies at the foothills of the Alps and has a number of small, unconnected ski and snowboard areas. The setting is idyllic, surrounded by the medieval villages lying south of the beautiful town of Fribourg. Famous for its Gruyère cheese, there is a lot more than just downhill skiing and snowboarding to do in the region and the area is particularly suitable for families with good winter walks, snow-shoe walking, ice-skating, sight-seeing and the most attractive winter landscape. There is also a spa in Charmey.
