Already at the valley station of the Alpin Express (1800 m.a.s.l.) the people who are dressed for winter sports seem a bit odd: it is summer after all and the sun easily warms up the Saas Valley to 25 °. But once the Alpin Express and Metro Alpin reaches its end destination, this attire makes sense.

While hikers and tourists dive into their backpacks to find a jacket to combat the cold, the boarders and skiers put on their high-tech gear and ski down the 20 km of well-groomed summer pistes on the Fee Glacier, located at an altitude of 3500 m.a.s.l. The summery sun makes for pleasant temperatures but not warm enough to melt the eternal snow. For those who are novices, rest assured that one can easily hire a guide/instructor even in summer.

How to get there:
Drive or take public transportation from Sierre to Saas Fee via Visp. From Saas Fee (car-free) by mountain trains.
