Rustic charm is combined with over 150km of marked pistes in the whole Saas Valley, which comprises four delightful villages. We recommend your holiday is based in picturesque Saas-Fee which has the largest ski area, with the neighbouring villages and pistes just a short bus ride away. With guaranteed snow at this altitude, there is a wide choice for all grades of skier. The glacier provides a dramatic backdrop to several of the runs, many of which are above the tree line. The village of Saas-Fee is traffic free, except for the little electric trolleys that carry goods around and this makes for a special atmosphere as you stroll through the narrow cobbled streets. Even the newest buildings feature a wealth of wood as development has been strictly controlled. Above Saas-Fee the 'Metro-Alpina' - the highest underground funicular in the world - climbs up to the world's highest revolving restaurant at 3,500m which is a must-do while you are on holiday here.

The Saas Valley ski area

Mittelallalin & Felskinn Felskinn at 3,000m is reached by two different cable car systems from either end of the village and these can bring you up to Morenia (2,550m) where you can start your day's skiing or carry on up to Felskinn. From here you can ski across to Egginerjoch then up to 3,192m for a choice of red and black runs. Above Felskinn there are usually good moguls if you are looking for something testing. From Felskinn the 'Metro-Alpin' climbs up through the solid rock to Mittelallalin at a fantastic 3,500m and here there is a revolving restaurant where you can enjoy a drink before starting your descent over the glacier. There's a wonderful 10km run back to the village - call in at the Gletschergrotte restaurant.

Längfluh This area is reached by gondola and cable car from the village or by skiing down from Mittelallalin. The restaurant here has spectacular views over the glacier from its terrace. The lifts at Längfluh offer several interesting runs followed by a choice of two different 5km runs back to the village. From Längfluh a drag lift can take you across the glacier to link up with the Felskinn ski area.

Plattjen A gondola from the village takes you up to Plattjen at 2,567m where the mountain restaurant is one of the best in the resort. The pistes back to Saas-Fee are firstly on wide and open slopes above the tree line and then through the pine woods with a choice of easy, medium and difficult runs to bring you back to the village.

Saas-Almagell A 15 minute bus ride brings you to another village of the Saas Valley. From here you will find a lift up to Furggstalden - a family-friendly ski area is set in breath-taking scenery. It offers adults plenty of peace and relaxation, with fun and adventure guaranteed for children at Kian the Dragon's Adventure Land including a tepee, igloo with children's films, free snow tubing track for the whole family and children's skidoos. For the little ones, there is a carousel with a playground.

Saas-Grund A 5 minute bus ride in the opposite direction takes you to the village of Saas-Grund, with its cable cars up to the sun-drenched Kreuzboden/Hohsaas area. From here you can enjoy a magnificent view of the four-thousand-metre peaks of the Saas Valley. There are also 35 kilometres of pistes, a fast fun run and many other adventurous options.
