The winter snow sports area in the Saas Valley with its more than 145 km of groomed pistes has something special for everyone: wide, smooth pistes for carvers, moguls pistes for experts, flat pistes for beginners.
The great advantage of the Saas Valley's snow sports area is that it has guaranteed snow. Because of its high altitude with pistes up to 3600 m above sea-level and the ski area on the glacier, we have guaranteed skiing and snowboarding all year round. All pistes which are not on the glacier have snow-making with 80 snow-cannons. The runs back down to the resorts can be maintained without the use of chemicals until the end of the season.
Snowboarders and freestyle skiers will find their own little paradise in the Freestyle Park at the Mittelallalin. The park is groomed all year, with a half-pipe, kickers and rails. You can also relax on a comfortable couch to the sound of good music in the "Chill Zone".
Age limit for children and juveniles:Children born in 2002 and later, accompanied by an adult, ski for free. Exception: In Saas-Balen children under 6 years of age pay the normal rate for children. There are also special prices for children born between 2001-1995 and for juveniles born between 1994-1993.
