Winter Activities

When the snow covers the mountains of Montreux Riviera and the sun shines brightly, it's time to enjoy the joys of winter! Skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, sledging, ice skating, cross-country skiing: all winter activities are accessible within a few minutes by train from Montreux or Vevey. 

"I learned to ski at Rochers-de-Naye, so it's my personal favourite resort."

Mustafa Ceylan, co-manager of Sports 2000 in Montreux

Mustafa Ceylan, nicknamed Mosquito, has been a skiing fanatic since he discovered the sport at the age of 15. If he is not skiing, it is because he works in the Sport 2000 shop in Montreux. Specialist in ski preparation, he takes care of both his customers… as well as the Swiss freestyle team!

What do you like most about skiing?
The atmosphere! Being with your friends in nature, in the mountains.

Where is your favourite place to ski?
I learned to ski at Rochers-de-Naye, so it's my personal favourite resort.

What advice would you give to beginners?
First of all, choose the right equipment. Then take lessons with approved instructors, like those of the ESS Montreux Riviera. Basically, don't follow my example at all (laughs)!

Before returning to his activities, Mustafa Ceylan wishes to remind us that the mountain is fragile and that we must take great care of it. This starts by not leaving any waste in its path!
