andlocked within the landlocked nations of Switzerland and Austria, Liechtenstein hosts one tiny ski resort, Malbun. It is a spectacular drive from the motorway at Sargans in Switzerland, or about 30 minutes by bus from Valbun, Liechtenstein's capital (itself 30 minutes by bus from Sargans station). There is a good range of skiing from nursery slopes through runs of increasing difficulty, including one short, steep black and some off-piste. There's cross-country skiing in nearby Steg and toboggan runs and winter walking trails in Malbun itself.
