Ski area Saas-Fee

Ski area Saas-Fee

The lift pass "Destinationspass" gives you access to 147 kilometres of piste and 42 lift systems in the whole of Saastal (see ski region). In the local ski area of Saas-Fee, 100 km of piste in all levels of difficulty are offered, giving you limitless fun on the pistes.

The pistes in Saas Valley are able to be used the whole winter, right through from November until Easter: Due to its extremely high altitude, snow security is guaranteed! The valley experiences heavy snowfall and particularly long-lasting sunshine especially late in spring from mid-March.

Beginners are offered ideal conditions on the easy, wide and excellently prepared glacier pistes here. Moreover, they can use 3 special beginner lifts on the outskirts of the area. Cracks will also be challenged and get their money's worth - under the glacier, the "Weiße Perle" and "National" attract experts for some unforgettable and spectacular off-piste fun. The area under the "Längfluh" chairlift attracts fans of unprepared slope moguls, and the former World Cup slope Plattjen, in the piste "Galen", still poses a challenge. A further highlight is the 14 km long "Panorama" run from the 3,500 m high "Mittelallalin Felskinn" to Saas-Fee at 1,800 m. Carvers will enjoy excellently prepared pistes in their territory under the glacier. Free stylers can take advantage of a freshly shaped half-pipe and the boarder cross. Popular night skiing can be taken advantage of once a week, when the pistes in Saas-Grund and Saas-Balen are lit in the evening.

Night skiing Saas-Fee

In Saastal you can also participate in the popular night skiing. Night-owls can look forward to three different pistes in the Saas-Fee ski area where they can experience skiing by night. "Fullmoon skiing" takes place once per week in the glacier ski area Hohsaas, when one piste at Kreuboden (2,400 m) is illuminated for night skiing from 18:30 - 21:45 from December to March. Night tobogganing is possible on selected dates.

Additionally, two further night ski pistes are in operation on selected dates: in "Unter dem Berg", a hamlet in Saas-Grund, you will find a small night ski area at Ziebel Dorflift. The tow lift here operates between December and February on a blue family run. Furhtermore the "Dorf" lifts in Saas-Balen extend their operation hours once per week from 20:00 - 22:00.

Après ski Saas-Fee

In Saas-Fee you will be welcomed to aprés ski when you reach the end of the slope in the valley. Various bars, such as the "Fee-Iglu-Bar" for instance, directly next to the Hotel Imseng, or the "Black Bull Bar" with it's cosy wooden terrace invite you to party with music, drinks and a great amount of fun. The "Popcorn!" can be found in two locations throughout the resort: the shop where you can find the newest ski and snowboard trends, and the hotel with the cosy café and the trendy club, which is open all night for partying. The "Dom-Bar" is a real trend-setter: throughout the day the shop offers the most trendy ski and snowboard brands and also invites you stay and enjoy a coffee or sandwich after your purchase. In the evenings the doors reopen, however then you will be directed towards the bar where you can saviour a nice beer or local wine with live music. In the neighbouring resorts Saas-Grund and Saas-Almagell there are further apres ski locations near the valley station, such as the "Tipi Saas-Grund", for instance, directly next to the mountain station.

If you prefer a quieter form of apres ski, you can choose from a great number of cosy cafés and restaurants where you can let yourself be spoilt by tasty Swiss specialities. But you can also remain sporty after a day on the piste: a 6 km long toboggan run leads all the way down to the valley from the Hannig mountain. With its length of 11 km, an even longer toboggan run can be found on Kreuzbogen in Saas-Grund. The impressive via ferrata "Gorge Alpine" takes you through the canyons from Saas-Fee to Saas-Grund (only with professional mountain guides). Ice climbing lessons, ski tour try-outs, husky fun rides, snowshoe hikes on prepared trails, a boulder hall and bowling alley - this should leave no wishes unfulfilled.

From the winter season 2014/2015 onwards there will be an addition to the already existing "Aqua Allalin": a newly designed activity centre with indoor pool, sauna area, steam bath, outdoor jacuzzi and fitness floor.

Snowpark: Fun Park Morenia Saas-Fee

The extremely snow-sure ski area Saas-Fee offers a wide variety of different pistes to cater to all skiers and boarders skills. Not only that: two different snow parks attract freestylers of all levels - be it beginner or pro. In the Morenia area, at approx. 2,600 m altitude lies the "Freestyle Park" with various kicker lines, boxes, rails, a super pipe and a half-pipe. The chill-out zone is perfect for cooling down.

Beginners can take a detour to the beginner park at Stafelwald. Three lines of different skill levels are perfect for practising the fist tricks.

Just below the Kreuzboden, in the ski area of Saas-Grund, there is another fun park to be found: with its kickers and rails it lets all freestylers' hearts beat faster.
