A picturesque Swiss village with high-altitude skiing, Saas Fee is known for its long ski runs and snowsure conditions. The 100km of ski terrain is mostly above 2500m, with three separate areas, the main one being the village centre. 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. Intermediates can improve their technique, especially high up on the glacier. Saas Fee also has lots of evening activities to sample once you’re done skiing for the day.
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. If you’re looking for activities to fill your evenings or keep the kids busy, then the outdoor ice rink and swimming pool are perfect after a day on the slopes.
If you fancy more adventure, try dog sledding or 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.
