Description

Surrounded by 13 giant peaks over 4000m, Saas-Fee is one of the highest and most desirable skiing destinations in the Alps. It's a charming Swiss chocolate-box resort, renowned for its reliable powder snowfall and long seasons.

The lift system is vast and fast, featuring a 30-person gondola which carries 1,500 eager skiers from Saas-Fee village up to the 3,000m Felskinn peak every hour. The skiable area is relatively small, at 100km, and the majority of the piste runs are suitable for beginners and intermediates. Beyond that, there are countless freeriding lines to keep expert skiers satisfied when venturing beyond the resort boundaries. Dive into this list to get yourself started.
