Ski area Hohsaas - Saas-Grund

Ski area Hohsaas - Saas-Grund

With your "Destination pass" (see ski region), a total of 147 km of piste in the Saas Valley are at your feet - including the glacier ski area in Saas-Fee. The ski region offers runs of different levels of difficulty.

The "Kreuzboden" cable car gives you direct access to the ski area Kreuzboden-Hohsaas at an altitude of between 1,560 and 3,142 m with 34.5 piste kilometres. Seven modern lift systems provide access to the mostly intermediate pistes. The longest descent, "Hohsaas-Kreuzboden" (800 m altitude difference) is a challenge even for experts. Children can get practising in the Snowland. The popular night skiing can be enjoyed once per week, when the pistes in Saas-Grund and Saas-Balen are lit in the evenings.

Night skiing Saas Grund

The very popular night skiing is also possible in Saastal. Three different resorts, or pistes, respectively, are available for night skiing. The glacier ski area Hohsaas offers "fullmoon skiing" once per month. Here at Kreuzboden (2,400 m) one piste is illuminated for night skiing from 18:30 - 21:45 from December to March. Night tobogganing is also possible on selected dates.

Two further night skiing pistes are in operation on selected days or upon prior request: in the hamlet "Unter dem Berg" in Saas-Grund you can find a small night skiing areal at the village lift. From December to February, the tow-lift there operates a blue piste that is illuminated on prior reservation. The village lifts in Saas-Balen also extend their operation hours once per week from 20:00 - 22:00.

Après ski Saas Grund

Even though Saas-Grund is not the well-known Saas-Fee, there's some party here as well. In the "White Horse Pub" and the "Old Inn" a good evening is to be had. If you prefer a more quiet atmosphere, you can spoil yourself in one of the several restaurants offering national or international specialities.

But that's not all, there are more leisure activities to be taken advantage of. You should not miss out on trying one of the country's longest tobogganing rides: the 11 km run from Kreuzboden down to Saas-Grund is so much fun. The artificial ice rink in the village is there for you to enjoy on ice skates yourself or, if you're lucky, you may get to see the local ice hockey team EHC Saastal play. Climbing fans will love the boulder cellar and with the Saas WellFit, a small spa and fitness centre is available also.

Snowpark: Saas Grund

The Saas Valley's ski areas are all extremely snow sure and offer a wide variety of different pistes, satisfying all skills. Not only that: two snow parks attract freestylers, no matter if beginner of professional. Below the Kreuzboden, in the ski area Saas-Grund, lies the fun park "Kreuzboden". A freestyler's heart will skip a few beats faster as they try out the different kickers and rails. The junior park "Sandiger Boden" is also available.

The Morenia area above Saas-Fee, at 2600 m altitude, features the Freestyle Park "Morenia" with various kicker lines, boxes, rails, a quarter pipe and a half pipe. There is a chill-out zone to take a break, too.

Beginners will also appreciate the beginner's park at the Stafelwald. Here you can have a go on three different lines with different difficulties.
