Even in summer, skiers and snowboarders will find 20 kilometres of immaculate glacier pistes in the Valais. The ski resorts on the Allalin in Saas Fee and on the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise in Zermatt are open all year round. Even very warm days are comfortably cool at over 3500 metres – ideal conditions for carving a few elegant turns in the snow. The popular summer training grounds of many international ski teams offer varied pistes for beginner and expert skiers and snowboarders. This is a summer delight only to be had in the Valais.
