Nendaz lies on a sunny mountain terrace near Sion, capital of Valais. In winter, the resort forms part of the vast ski area of “Les 4 Vallées”, with 92 lifts and slopes to suit all winter sports enthusiasts. During warmer months, the family-friendly resort is especially popular with walkers and mountain bikers. The high plateau of Nendaz offers fabulous views of the surrounding alpine peaks as well as a network of 98 km of footpaths along the “bisses”, the region’s traditional irrigation channels. Today, Nendaz is a modern holiday resort, yet it has retained its village heart of traditional old houses and wooden barns.
