Between the Säntis mountain and the peaks of the Churfirsten lies the picturesque Toggenburg valley, with the villages of Wildhaus, Unterwasser and Alt St. Johann sharing a reasonably-sized ski area. Unterwasser is probably the most convenient destination for day-trippers using public transport, but you can get here in around an hour from Zurich by car and there is ample car parking in all three villages at the base stations. The villages and slopes are very family-friendly. However the runs are graded mainly red, so the skiing and snowboarding is best for intermediates, and it is difficult to avoid using surface lifts to get around.
