A picturesque Swiss village with high-altitude skiing, Saas Fee is known for its long ski runs and great snow record. The 100km of ski terrain is mostly above 2500m, with three separate areas, the main one being the village centre. The glacier has some excellent intermediate terrain and there’s a great area for families down the valley in Saas Grund, where you’ll find empty slopes, a quality ski school and safe skiing. The village of Saas Fee itself is pretty and traffic-free, with a healthy après scene and a cracking selection of bars to choose between.
There’s plenty to keep the kids busy in the evening, like the outdoor ice rink and swimming pool, which are both perfect after a day on the slopes. If you fancy more adventure head up to the Hannig. It’s a 5km long sledge trail with a lift system that takes you up to the top. Our favourite evening activity has to be the flaming torch light walk and Swiss fondue night. It happens on a weekly basis and is a real resort highlight – one not to be missed.
