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 Arolla
The quaint village of Arolla in the Val d’Hérens is the starting point for memorable mountain and ski tours and lies at the foot of majestic giant peaks. The ski resort features six ski lifts and – thanks to it very altitude – has guaranteed snow well into the spring. Chantal Bournissen, the former ski racer, has long appreciated this. Arolla is also loved for its ski tours and is one of the staging grounds for the famous “Haute Route” leading to Chamonix. Moreover, the area offers a gorgeous groomed Nordic ski track that follows the Arolla Glacier and the Borgne River.
