Snowboarding Ski Breaks in the Beautiful Resort of Saas Fee

Drive time : 141 miles or 2hrs 50mins drive time from Geneva

Drive time : 177 miles or 3hrs 40mins drive time from Chambery

There is one thing that you instantly notice when you arrive in Saas Fee for a ski break and it isn’t the dramatic scenery and amazing skiing and snowboarding opportunities. Instead, the unique and romantic atmosphere of this magical resort is instantly appealing.

Saas Fee is surrounded by 13 imposing, 4000m peaks including Switzerland's highest, the Dom (4545m). The traffic-free town and chalet-style buildings contribute to the relaxing charm of the village whilst these peaks provide ample opportunities for skiing and snowboarding.

Plus at just over 3 hours 30 minutes from Chambery and even less from Geneva, after arriving on cheap flights, it won’t be long until you’re on the snow.

Ideal Slopes for Beginners and Intermediates

There are 100km of marked pistes in Saas Fee in the winter, most of which are best suited to beginners and intermediate skiers or boarders. The resort has a reputation for maintaining the runs in immaculate condition, allowing intermediates a great base from which to push themselves to the next level during a skiing weekend in Saas Fee.

Plus it is worth noting that Saas Fee is one of the leading resorts for ski breaks all year round, such is the quality of the snowfall.

Snowboarding and Skiing Competitions

Saas Fee has an excellent snow park and border cross. It is renowned for hosting many of the major competitions such as the Rip Curl Challenge and the World Cup Half Pipe events. Ski and board manufacturers are regularly spotted testing their products here so when on a ski break in Saas Fee keep an eye out for these.

The atmosphere in the snow park is superb; a DJ usually plays at the bottom of the park and photographers and cameramen are frequently spotted filming for the latest movies. It adds to the resort’s action-packed image for snowboarding and skiing weekends.

Ski Touring and Mountaineering in Saas Fee

Skiing breaks here aren’t just about the adrenaline pumping action of scaling the slopes and perfecting your moves. Saas Fee is one of the leading resorts for mountaineering and ski touring from valley to valley. Several nearby peaks can be climbed and the extended Haute Route from Chamonix via Zermatt ends here.

It all adds up to make Saas Fee an excellent destination in the Saas Valley for skiing breaks.
