To all Swiss or European Imamothers

How would I find out which areas of the Alps will there be a minyan this summer?
We are looking to rent an apartment in any area within walking distance of a minyan (Switzerland, France or even Austria is fine) but we have no idea how to find this out!

I've heard that groups of families often get together and book in a specific place to have a minyan - any ideas how I can find out about this?
If anyone out there has any areas (besides for Davos, st Moritz and Crans Montana) where there will be a minyan this Summer please reply! The more specific the better and numbers would also be much appreciated!
TIA!

You could find out where the kosher clubs will be. But off the top of my head, it's Jewland in Val fréjus and L'alpe d'huez, as in hearing hebrew and Yiddish (!) in the street.

Thank you for these quick replies - are these places all centered around a Kosher hotel? What about the areas that are just families renting?

Davos, Klosters, Saas Fee, Saas Grund, Arosa. For sure there will be minyan there. Grachen probably too. A lot of people go to the wallis area

In Austria I believe Hinterglem and Serfaus have a minyan every year.

In Switzerland in addition to the above poster's list, there is usually also a minyan in Saas Almagell, Flims, Haute Nendaz, Riederalp & Adelboden. Also, in the St Moritz region, many of the villages within a 10-15min drive will have their own minyan. In the places where there is no hotel, the minyan takes place in somebody's house. Around this time of year, people trying to form a minyan will post a line in the Swiss Jewish paper, with a phone number. If you know where you would like to be and have a few men in your family, you might want to do the same.

So in some places there is one/two/three (kah) kosher hotels, and many families renting an apt and going to eat at the hotel sometimes/shabbes/not. France has a kosher list making it possible to eat kosher everywhere (barring meat and hard cheese). Unless you shlep the meat/ready made microwave dishes etc.
We were in the Pyrénées for Pessach

Anyone have any idea about places NOT centered around a hotel?

Are there any Belgian Imamothers around - someone told me that the Belgian usually are the ones who form the groups in the French and Swiss alps... and they would have the lists of minyanim.

Is Tignes a hotel or just rentals?
TIA!

Ha! My yearly question! Most of the places have been mentioned above. I'm bored of the usual places and would love to find a new one, pref where the cable cars are free.
Nechami- Tignes you can rent apartments too. (everywhere, actually)
I think Grimentz have an English minjan too.
Austria: Fiss and Ladis too. Fiss is really nice!

Any Swiss imamothers who know Davos perfectly? I have some questions about areas..
