Saas Fee is one of Europe’s most snow-sure ski resorts, known as the “pearl of the Alps’’, due to a combination of a glacier, altitude and north, west and East facing slopes.
It’s a kind of mini Zermatt, like Zermatt it’s car-free. Most of the hotels operate mini electric vehicles to get you to the slopes, although the walk through the narrow streets is never far if you choose a more central hotel from the skiing and the walk is very pleasant. Saas Fee has the feeling of a small village, it is in fact nearly 2 km long, cow sheds give a hint to its farming heritage.
The ski range is between 1800m and 3550m and offers 145km of pistes, the longest being 9km. The skiing in Saas Fee is suitable for all levels of skier and snowboarder. It's also an excellent choice for non-skiers with loads to do away from the slopes including 60km of walking trails.
The lift system is fast, but these include a few T-bar lifts, due to the glacier, that snowboarders might not enjoy. Queues are not a problem in Saas Fee.
The worlds highest revolving restaurant is a great place to enjoy lunches while taking in the magnificent 360-degree views, a table by a window is always in high demand, so booking essential.
