Snowboarding and Skiing Paradise

Summer skiers and snowboarders enjoy schussing down the 20 km of well-groomed summer pistes on the Fee Glacier, located at an altitude of 3500 m.a.s.l. The breathtaking panorama of the highest Valaisian peaks and hot summer sun contribute to the incomparable summer skiing experience.

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.

The glacier west of the Wildstrubel is flat and in places as much as 200 meters thick – draining direction Lenk predominantly in the Bernese Oberland, but also in the Rhone Valley of Valais.
