The downhill run on this highest slope in the Thyon ski area is a special treat for seasoned skiers who are looking for a real challenge. The views down to the Rhone Valley, the Dent Blanche and the Grande Dixence, Europe’s greatest dam, are quite stunning.
From the summit of the Petites Roches nearly 1,600 metres above sea level skiers enjoy views of the Mittelland and Lake Neuchâtel and also of the Alps looming on the horizon.
Although the descent from Petites Roches to Les Rasses is marked in black, less experienced skiers can also enjoy this route. The piste follows moderately steep, uniform terrain and hence is suitable for families too.
This delightfully long downhill run in the Saas-Grund area is set against a backdrop of high-Alpine scenery. Starting at the Hohsaas cableway top station, it first crosses spacious slopes before taking you down to the village in the valley.
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.
