Tips from akke on Saas-Fee Saastal

Nice runs and lots of variety. We got a great deal on our season's pass, which makes it worth your while if you want to go for a week's ski holiday and perhaps a sneaky weekend in the spring. Nice ski area for children too.

What more could you ask for!!

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 nicest thing about skiing in Saas Fee is there are almost no queues at ski lifts! High altitudes mean great snow and the views will knock your socks off! Plenty to do in the evening - nice choice of bars and restaurants but all a bit pricey! choose your accommodation carefully or you might find yourself with a bit of a schlep in teh morning to get to the lifts!

Expensive but worth it

Saas Fee is a great, high altitude ski resort. The piste map and categories are a bit misleading. Many of the runs seemed to be under-rated - ie blues should have been reds, reds should have been black and the black should have been reds! Although everyone in our mixed level group had a great week, everyone had a little moan about this - the beginners had a hard time on the return to the resort as the blues are tricky and narrow. I'd advice taking the cable car back at the end of the day when legs are tired! There seemed to be lots of nice blue runs low down around the village so maybe best for beginners to hang out there. The intermediates (me included) would advise to beware of the red runs from Plattjen and Spielboden which are quite steep and should probably be black! The village itself is just lovely - we must have taken a thousand photos! Great weather and great snow - hope you have the same :)

Pretty, good snow, but not great for wobbly skiers

Saas Fee is a pretty ski resort at high altitude which explains the lovely weather and great snow. Food and drink is very expensive and you even pay for tap water in some mountain restaurants :( Not the best place for beginners - my wife is a long term beginner - not really her thing but she comes along to keep me company - and we had some pretty nasty moments on the runs back down to the village - even though they are blue there are some narrow icy bits!
