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.
Les 4 Vallées
One ski area, four valleys and five mountain sports destinations: even the most demanding winter sports enthusiast is drawn to its extensive slopes, such as the Piste de l’Ours World Cup course in Veysonnaz. Verbier is the destination for true freeriders, whereas freestylers are drawn more to the Thyon region with its enormous snowpark. The wide range of activities and many winter hiking trails is particularly appealing to families. The longest toboggan run in western Switzerland, which awaits in La Tzoumaz, is the highlight of the “4 Valées”.
