With its extra-wide pistes Savognin is regarded as a carver’s paradise. One of this ski area’s most beautiful slopes starts at the summit of the Piz Martegnas. Without any flat sections, it takes you down to the village in one highly enjoyable sweep.

The piste from Les Attelas down to Verbier is very beautiful and not too difficult.
The extensive ski arena at Verbier provides both the novice and more ambitious skiers with a wide range of options. One of the finest of these descents is the FIS route from Les Attelas to Les Ruinettes and down to the village edge.
The snappiest piste in or near Gstaad is located on the Wasserngrat. Marked in black, the Tiger Run is the region’s steepest slope and has a huge average gradient of 45 degrees. When reaching the end of the run, skiers are in no doubt as to where their thighs are located.
