Alpine Life

Saas Fee

Saas-Fee 'The Pearl of the Alps', is an ancient village in a superb high-altitude setting surrounded by 13 4,000-metre snow capped peaks, including the highest mountain in Switzerland, the Dom (4,545m), forming a dramatic and unique backdrop.

At an altitude of 1800m, with skiing up to 3500m, Saas Fee is one of the most snow-sure resorts in the Alps with over 140km of skiing in the valley and a modern lift system - plus awesome views. Blackened chalets interspersed with modern hotels, fashion boutiques and ski shops line its narrow car-free streets.

Year-round skiing

Its high altitude allows skiing on the glacier from the beginning of July through to the start of the winter season in November and the season goes on until the end of April.
