Saas-Fee Ski Villages

Hint

Intro

Up until the 14th century there was only one community in the Saas Valley: Saas. Four villages arose out of Saas - of those four Saas Fee, also known as "The Pearl of the Alps", is the most renowned; 13 four thousand meter peaks surround the glacier village, which is located at an altitude of 1800 meters above sea level.

Description

The car-free Saas-Fee (1800 m above sea level) lies at the foot of Switzerland's highest mountain, the Dom (4545 m above sea level), which can be admired particularly well from the highest revolving restaurant in the world. In summer, numerous excursion destinations, 350 km of hiking and theme trails and, last but not least, the cuddliest inhabitants of the village: the famous tame marmots, attract visitors. In the cold season, Saas-Fee with its excellent snow conditions and fantastically prepared pistes is THE mecca for winter (sports) fans and all those who want to become one.

Winter
Saas-Fee, with 150 kilometres of pistes, has blue, red, black and yellow runs. These promise unique skiing pleasure, always surrounded by 13 four-thousand-metre peaks! For non-alpine skiers, there are winter hiking trails and a long cross-country ski trail. Various toboggan runs offer a change from skiing.

Summer
In addition to around 350km of hiking trails and numerous theme trails, the tame marmots that you meet below the Spielboden mountain station are an exceptional experience. Adventure-seekers can cross the Gorge Alpin, the stream gorge between Saas-Fee and Saas-Grund, along steep rock faces in the company of a mountain guide. In the adventure forest in Saas-Fee, those with a head for heights can shimmy from tree to tree on various courses on lianas or suspension bridges, or speed through the forest landscape on the "Feeblitz" summer and winter toboggan run. The Saas Valley also has a 70 km long mountain bike network.

Family
Saas-Fee/Saas Valley offers exciting family holidays. A varied children's programme in the midst of the highest Swiss mountains ensures adventure and action without end. Close to nature: in summer with the marmots or in winter on 145 km of pistes.

Winter

With its 22 lifts and 100 km of prepared pistes, the winter ski region of Saas Fee forms the heart of the entire ski region. In addition to Saas-Fee, there is a further ski area in the nearby region of Kreuzboden-Hochsaas above Saas-Grund. Twenty kilometres of winter walking trails and an 8-km-long cross-country ski trail are provided for non-Alpine skiers. Various toboggan runs, such as the 11-km-long toboggan run from Kreuzboden to Saas-Grund offer alternatives to skiing.

Summer

In addition to around 350 km of walking paths and numerous themed trails, it is an extraordinary experience to encounter the tame marmots that can be found beneath the Spielboden mountain station. More adventurous visitors might wish to cross the Alpin gorge, the brook gorge between Saas-Fee and Saas-Grund, passing along steep rock walls accompanied by a mountain guide.

In the “adventure forest” in Saas Fee, those with a head for heights will be able to venture on various obstacle courses, swinging from a steel cable and passing from tree to tree across rope bridges, as well as whiz through the forest landscape on the «Feeblitz» summer and winter toboggan run. The Saas valley also has a 70-km-long network of mountain-bike tracks and a 5-km-long push-scooter route.

Family

The Pearl of the Alps lies on a high plateau of the Saas Valley, above the other three Saas communities. Saas-Grund in the center of the valley is an ideal starting point for the high altitude trails. Saas Almagell's main attraction is Mattmark, a natural dam. Saas Balen is home to the Late Baroque circular church, a building of national significance, and the roaring Fell Brook in the center of the village. Saas Valley is distinguished by 350 kilometers of thematic and hiking trails as well as special offerings for families and children. The ski region has 150 kilometers of pistes of all levels of difficulty, which are considered to be snow-assured. Twenty-two railways lead to the pistes, including the well-known Metro Alpin (Alpine Metro), which takes passengers to the world's highest revolving restaurant.
