Intro

The Valais holiday resort of Zinal is situated at an altitude of 1670 m at the end of the Val d'Anniviers (Eifischtal) where it becomes the Zinal Valley. It nestles amidst this majestic mountain landscape crowned by the 4000-metre-peaks of the Weisshorn,Bishorn, Zinalrothorn, Obergabelhorn, Matterhorn and Dent Blanche.

The ‘Anniviards’ used to rest with their herds in the settlement of Zinal, with its typical houses made of larch wood, before continuing their journey from the valley up to the high alpine pastures. Tourism has been part of village life in Zinal for 150 years.

Winter

The ski resort of Zinal-Sorebois guarantees plenty of snow and comprises 9 lift facilities at altitudes ranging from 1670 m to 2895 m together with 70 kilometres of pistes against a majestic backdrop of high mountain scenery. The free-ride terrain near the ‘Gardes de Bordon’ makes Zinal a popular destination for off-piste skiing and the Avalanche Training Centre will give you the opportunity to experience a simulated avalanche so you will learn how to deal with and avoid causing potentially dangerous situation. There are 19 kilometres of cross-country ski trails.

Summer

The peak of the Weisshorn dominates the mountain landscape round Zinal. At 4506 m, it’s the fourth highest peak in Europe. No wonder that this resort is so popular with mountain climbers! Climbers march for several hours to reach four mountain huts dotted around Zinal, the starting point for climbs to the summit. Zinal also has a 300-km-network of hiking trails for keen walkers, and 150 kilometres of marked routes for sporty mountain bikers.

You can rent children’s equipment, and there is a library, a games hire facility, play- and picnic grounds, climbing garden and swimming pool, making a stay here enjoyable for both the children and their parents. On the Zau Zoura nature trail, old and young alike can learn all about local fauna and flora. You can spy on the alpine animal kingdom through a telescope at the ‘Mirador’ wildlife observation centre near the ‘Tzoucdana’ café-restaurant.
