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 Thyon
Thyon is the eastern gate to one of the largest connected ski areas in the Alps: “Les 4 Vallées”. Thyon is completely free of vehicular traffic and is thus perfectly suited for relaxed and safe family vacationing. A children’s ski school and the many vacation homes on offer make this the perfect destination for families. The ski area includes Thyon, Veysonnaz, Nendaz, La Tzoumaz and Verbier, and includes a total of 95 lifts and 410 km of pistes. The Thyon region alone offers more than ten lifts, and most accommodations can be reached directly from the pistes. The descent into the village is guaranteed from December until April. Winter hikers will find several kilometres of groomed winter trails, and the area has trails for snowshoers and dog sledding available.
