 All visitors park in the car park at the entrance to the traffic-free village and take an electric taxi into the centre. With most of the skiing between 2,500 and 3,500m the village is snowsure. Skiing is possible throughout the year - the lifts are open from July right through autumn to April. Access is easy as Saas Fee is less than 2 and a half hours drive from either Milan or Geneva. Zermatt and other resorts are within one hour.

Saas Fee is the real “chocolate box” swiss village, a true dual season resort with many summer activities such as swimming pool, tennis courts, golfing, mountaineering, walking trails, adventure trails and the Feeblitz, a children’s roller coaster in the forest.

Saas Fee is one of the most scenic resorts in Switzerland. The glacier is open for skiing all year and many of the national ski teams train there in the summer. At 1800m and with most of the skiing between 2,500 and 3,500m snow is guaranteed. Fast cable cars and an underground funicular whisk you up from the resort to 3,500m quickly and with no queues. Perfect for beginners and intermediates - a quiet nursery area and a mix of blue and red runs even at high altitude. Experts have some dramatic off piste skiing and ski touring, and although not a huge ski area (100 km of piste), you can also go to Zermatt for the day on the same lift pass. Plenty of other winter sports are on offer and one mountain is dedicated to toboggans and walkers.

Chalet Veronique is located in a wonderfully sunny position in the Wildi area of the village . Here set in deep snow you really have an authentic mountain feel with fabulous views.
