A winter paradise for skiing, somewhere between heaven and earth. The majestic four-thousanders form a magnificent setting dedicated to winter sports. If you like winter, you’ll love Valais! The possibilities are boundless and snow is guaranteed. No great surprise when you realise that Valais is the region in Switzerland that, thanks to the altitude of its ski areas, promises the best snow conditions on its 2400 kilometres of slopes.
Ski resort Saas-Grund
The Hohsaas ski area is sunny and has plenty of snow, and it boasts a unique view to 18 massive four-thousand-metre peaks. Cross-country skiers can stretch their legs on the valley floor. A skating rink invites skaters to perform pirouettes, or participate in curling or ice hockey. Or watch home games of the EHC Saastal, an ice hockey team in the Swiss Third Liga. One of the longest and exciting toboggan runs shoots over eleven kilometres into the valley.
