Located 1,800 m above sea level, Saas Fee is a car-free resort, with breath-taking views of the surrounding landscape. Perfect for high altitude activities.

Emma Hunter

At an altitude of 1800m with skiing up to 3,600m and over 140km of skiing in the Saas Valley,  Saas Fee is one of the most snow-sure resorts in the Alps.

Known as The Pearl of the Alps, this ancient glacier village is surrounded by 18 4,000-metre snow capped peaks, including Switzerland's highest mountain, the Dom.  With an extensive and varied selection of ski runs, there's something to suit everyone, from first-timers to the most advanced off-piste enthusiasts. In addition to skiing and snowboarding, there are plenty of other winter sports on offer here too, including curling, ice climbing, and sledging; indeed the whole Hannig Mountain and its gondola is set aside for tobogganers, winter walkers, cross-country skiers and snowshoers.

Saas-Fee caters for all ages and abilities. Families will appreciate the friendly atmosphere and the fantastic, large beginners’ area in the village centre. In and around Saas-Fee itself the blue and red runs are ideal for beginner and intermediate skiers and boarders. For those looking for more of a challenge, the ski areas of Saas-Grund and Saas-Allmagell, further down the valley, are included in the excellent Saas-Fee ski network. Snowboarders and freestyle skiers will find their own little paradise in the Freestyle Park at the Mittelallalin with a half-pipe, kickers and rails.  To keep you occupied off the slopes, there's the state of the art Aqua Allalin pool and spa complex, the Feeblitz bobsleigh rollercoaster, Ice Pavilion and Saaser Museum.

With an emphasis on sustainability, Saas Fee is a traditional Swiss village with a car-free centre and 100% renewable hydro-electric power.  

It’s sometimes said that this quaint resort resembles an historic Zermatt, equally charming but with a slower pace of life and a more traditional ambience. Blending luxury ski chalets with ancient wooden Valasian houses along it's cobbled streets, Saas Fee has a remarkably peaceful, wonderful alpine atmosphere.

The après scene in Saas-Fee has a relaxed feel and there are plenty of bars to choose from. By far one of the quirkiest bars in resort is Nesti’s Ski Bar, a popular, lively retreat with an unusual decor and cosy atmosphere. Dining options range from hospitable pizzerias to Michelin starred restaurants, with a wide variety of cuisines on offer. The village has a number of small supermarkets and locally run produce stores to supply you with snacks for the mountain and sports shops will provide you with rental equipment. In addition there a few upmarket gift stores, including a local jewellery boutique, so you can bring something home for friends, family, or treat yourself to a trip momento.
