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 Saas-Almagell
Saas-Almagell is a typical, leisurely Valais mountain village and offers more than just broad pistes. The neighbouring Furggstalden-Heidbodme ski area is especially ideal for families and always has plenty of snow. Ski stars such as Pirmin, Heidi and Silvan Zurbriggen made their first forays onto the snow here. The cross-country ski trails lead from Eiu Alp directly below the impressive dam to Saas-Balen. Schuss down the three-kilometre-long toboggan run, bask in the spectacular views while cross-country skiing or snowshoeing, or have fun ice-skating and curling on the ice rink. Whatever your pleasure, there is plenty to do in Saas-Almagell!
