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 2000 kilometres of slopes.
Ski resort Aletsch Arena
The extensive Aletsch ski area encompasses 104 kilometres of pistes and reaches 2869m. The Riederalp, Bettmeralp and Fiesch-Eggishorn offer unforgettable views to the Great Aletsch glacier, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site (Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch) in 2001. A fine raclette or fondue, accompanied by a glass of Values white wine, is a pleasurable conclusion to a vigorous day of snow hiking or cross-country skiing.
