Altitude: 1800-3600 Meters

Saas-Fee in short

  • Glacier skiing
  • Home to world's highest revolving restaurant
  • Marked off-piste runs

Saas Fee, the “Pearl of the Alps”, where snow is never lacking (thanks to its glacier), offers some spectacular and unforgettable skiing. The excellent conditions on the mountain are so sought after that the Swiss ski team come here to train on the glacier in the summer! High altitudes combined with north-facing slopes make the ski area of Saas Fee one of the most reliable, snow-sure places to ski in Europe. Excellent skiing is certainly not the only reason to visit this ski area. Saas Fee seems to like drawing attention to itself! It does this by breaking world records... three in total! The first of which is the Mittelallilin restuarant, situated at an altitude of 3500m at the top of the Allalin mountain, being the highest revolving restuarant in the world. From here you are treated to 360 degree views of the whole mountain range and in particular the stunning blue glacier below. If you want to feel on top of the world, Saas Fee is the place to lunch!

The 2nd world record awarded to the ski resort of Saas-Fee Saastal is for the world's highest metro, or in other words, a train which starts at the the top of Felskinn at 3000m of altitude and takes you through the heart of the mountain up to an altitude of 3500m to the 3rd world record holder! Last but not least, is the world's largest ice grotto; the Ice pavilion on the Allalin at 3500m of altitude. If you have ever wondered what a glacier looks like from the inside, or have been asking yourself how deep the crevasses in the ice go, here you can find the answers to all your questions! You can explore this magical grotto which has existed for thousands of years in Switzerland and has a total volume of 5500 m³! It is essentially a series of walkways through the inside of the glacier which meet up in a central exhibition area where there some stunning ice sculptures and other exhibits. Make sure you wrap up warm. Half of the 100km of ski slopes in Saas Fee are dedicated to intermediate skiers as there are 50km of excellent and varied red runs. The remaining 50km of runs are equally shared out between the beginners and experts. There are plenty of steep descents for advanced skiers including some 'yellow' runs which are actually off-piste areas which have been marked out as runs or maintained as moguls fields. We highly recommend you start your week's skiing in Saas Fee on the Plattjen area and end your week on the Allalin area - most people do it the other way round...

The skiing is great in Saas Fee with super challenging off-piste that's best done with a guide. Great place for family skiing as plenty of nice blues and reds. ...

The Alps are home to some of the most spectacular panoramas in the world, but a surprising number of ski resorts manage to totally trash this scenery by constructing the ugliest buildings you can imagine (we're looking at you, Flaine). If booking a ski holiday in a beautiful ski resort is important to you, then check out this list of ten charming alpine villages - with world-class skiing to boot!... More ›
