CHECK OUT SAAS FEE

Check out Saas Fee situated in the South West corner of the Valais region. The village sits at a height of 1800m. The mountains that surround the resort are some of the largest in Europe. Described as ' The pearl of the Alps' there are 13 peaks over 4000m in height.

Saas Fee is home to a large ridable glacier with snow cover all year round. The resort will shut for a few weeks during the spring and early Summer. By mid July they are open for business. The glacier offers a great selection of slopes as well as an awesome snow park for all levels of rider. The park attracts the worlds best riders during the Autumn months as they are getting prepared for the up and coming contest season.

The glacier is accessed by gondola lifts and an underground railway that cuts through the mountains up to the slopes.The slopes are broken up into two clear sections with a upper and lower section. When snow conditions allow later in the autumn the lifts and slopes around the mid station begin to open up. I have ridden many an awesome powder day in Saas Fee in October and November.

The village is a typical Swiss chocolate box resort. Hand crafted chalets and hotels sit alongside cow sheds and farmers barns. A little like Zermatt, Saas Fee keeps its streets car free which adds to the pure charm of the resort. There is a great selection of shops, restaurants and bars. The infamous Popcorn bar POPCORN BAR SAAS FEE usually fires up most weekends if you are looking for a late night party spot.
