Ski Holidays to Saas Fee
Pine-clad mountains, glaciers, blue skies, crisp white snow… all sounds a little too picture-perfect. Saas Fee brings the postcards to life as one of the most beautiful ski resorts in the Swiss Alps. The slopes are covered in snow all year round giving skiers the choice to visit in both winter and summer. With cars banned in the area, Saas Fee is peaceful and, almost eerily, quiet. Although the resort has kept up to date with its infrastructure and technology, Saas Fee has still preserved its traditional and fairytale-like charm. It is one of the best ski holiday destinations in Europe and lives up to its name of ‘The Pearl of the Alps’.
Skiing in Saas Fee
Divided into three areas, the slopes in Saas Fee collectively offer over 100 km of pistes that are suitable for all levels of experience. Even experts can be challenged with the mix of adrenaline pumping off piste routes. The 21 lifts carry skiers all over the resort and passes can be bought to give access to nearby Saas Grund or Saas Almagell. The main skiing season is open throughout the winter and spring from October to May, only shutting for a few weeks before reopening for the thrilling sport of glacier skiing.
