Skiing Holidays in Saas Fee

A ski holiday in Saas Fee, known locally as "the pearl of the alps", gives a real sense of Swiss alpine charm. Saas Fee has some of the most spectacular scenery anywhere, from 4000m peaks to a range of stunning glaciers. Much of this territory is shared by its illustrious neighbour, Zermatt.
Saas Fee Ski Holidays: The Skiing
On a Saas-Fee ski holiday snow is all but guaranteed due to the resort sitting at 1800m. The skiing itself is not as challenging as Zermatt's, with most of the runs favouring intermediates and beginners. Snowboarders will like Saas-Fee skiing holidays with its excellent school, although it isn't great for middle-ability boarders. The Saas Fee ski domain is not that expansive, with 100km of pistes, while the lift system is rather inefficient. Due to the dominance of the Dom Mountain (one of the highest in Switzerland), the resort can suffer from a lack of sun in the winter. The Mittelallalin glacier, connected by an underground funicular railway, provides for summer skiing and boarding holidays. Saas-Fee is also the official training centre for the Professional Snowboarding Association.

Why Saas Fee?
- Pretty much guaranteed snow
