It’s sometimes said that the quaint resort of Saas-Fee resembles Zermatt as it once was – which is no criticism of Zermatt…just that Saas-Fee still speaks of another era when things moved at a slower pace and with a more traditional ambience. With an excellent snow record and glacier skiing, Saas-Fee is a beautiful high Alpine village deservedly known as ‘the Pearl of the Alps.’ What is also remarkable is the way such a superb ski area has been superimposed on such picturesque but wild glacial terrain. The charming traffic-free resort is surrounded by a magnificent backdrop of towering peaks and dazzling blue glaciers, including the Dom, the highest mountain entirely in Switzerland. The excellent network of pistes, which also include the areas of Saas-Grund and Saas-Allmagell further down the valley, caters for all levels and ages and with the majority of runs being blue and red, it is ideal for intermediates. Families will appreciate the friendly atmosphere as well as the fantastic beginners’ area in the village.
