Saas Fee Resort Info
Neighbour to the illustrious Zermatt, Saas-Fee has some spectacular scenery . Sitting at 1800m, snow in Saas-Fee is all but guaranteed. The skiing is perhaps not quite as challenging as Zermatt's, with most pistes suited more to beginners and intermediates. The ski domain is not that expansive, with only 100km of its own pistes, while the lift is rather inefficient. Snowboarders and freestylers will however find Saas-Fee a pretty good bet, with year round snow park options: the small beginner's park located near the village ski lifts in Stafelwald, the main park is situated in the Morenia area and the summer park in Allalin.
Saas-Fee ski resort
Saas-Fee has maintained more of its alpine village charm than Zermatt, and as an added bonus is traffic-free. There are plenty of off-snow activities with a sports centre, the highest revolving restaurant in the world (3500m) and some good designer ski shops. Après-ski is fine, but restaurants can be a bit below par, as well as a bit expensive.

Snow Overview - Switzerland (snow news updated 09-Dec-2016)
No great change in conditions in Switzerland on Thursday 8th of December. Clear sunny and dry is the standard at all of the currently open resorts. The best options still remain the high altitude resorts around The Matterhorn or resorts with north facing slopes. On piste conditions are still good but becoming a mix of hard pack and loose sugar snow. New snow is desperately needed.
Looking forward, the high pressure weather trend continues. For the first time this month, however, snow is appearing in the long range forecast. Snowfalls may start by mid-December but are far more likely to start later.
European Weather Outlook
It’s been dry and sunny for most of Europe recently, and this looks set to continue for the foreseeable future. Austria and Eastern Europe could see some snow over the next week but it will be mostly dry. It’s a similar story in the Pyrenees, where sunshine is set to dominate.
