The Val d'Anniviers is home to a diverse selection of pistes. One of the most beautiful and also most challenging descents in the entire valley is the Piste du Chamois. It runs from the highest point in the ski area of Zinal and down to the village of Grimentz.
The ski area around the three mountain villages of Brigels, Waltensburg and Andiast is very popular with families because of its sunny location. Most of the pistes range from easy to intermediate. This region’s longest downhill run leads from Fil to Waltensburg.
Tackling one of the longest downhill runs in Switzerland - extending 14.9 km from the Schilthorn to Lauterbrunnen (800 m a.s.l.) - is best done after a hearty James Bond breakfast at the Piz Gloria revolving restaurant.
The piste from the Schilthorn to Lauterbrunnen is almost 15 km long, making it one of the longest in Switzerland. At the end of January each year, a hellish racing spectacle is enacted here. The descent is open to experienced skiers all winter.
