Its exceptional attractions and amazing scenery appeal to all kinds of visitors, from mountain enthusiasts and nature lovers, to those seeking an active or a relaxing break. Whatever the season, the mountains have so much to offer.

Here you can enjoy superb slopes with panoramic views over both Bernese Alps or the Grand Combin, Grand St bernard and Mt Blanc massifs.

So whether you are a fan of skiing, snowboarding, sledging, snowshoeing, ski touring, ice skating or just relaxing in the sun, everyone in the family will enjoy La Tzoumaz.
