Saas-Fee

High and snow-sure, the resort of Saas-Fee at 1800m is a car-free charming traditional mountain village surrounded by high peaks and glaciers. As well as the charm factor there’s the super-reliable snow: you spend most of your days here at an altitude – up to 3,600m – that is unrivalled in the Alps. Thanks to altitude and aspect, Saas-Fee has a long ski season and there's also skiing on the glacier in summer.

The excellent network of pistes (150km in total), which also include the areas of Saas-Grund and Saas-Allmagell further down the valley, caters for all levels and ages.
