The Swiss Alps region
If you like ancient, quiet, totally unspoilt mountain villages together with a modern lift system then this is the place for you. In addition to the piste skiing the area is famous for its fabulous off piste skiing and its mountain touring. For magnificent views just off one the pistes in Grimentz there is a stunning 360 degree panoramic view of the Imperial Crown - five 4000m peaks - Weisshorn, Zinalrothorn, Obergabelhorn, Dent-Blanche and the Matterhorn. The village itself has tiny cobbled streets and in some places they are so narrow that the roofs of the chalets almost touch each other in the middle.
The skiing in Grimentz is mainly between 1340m to 3000m although the vast majority of the skiing is above 2100m thus the area is snow secure. The area has varied skiing from open pistes to forest runs and steep blacks to easy blues. There is a great snow park at 2500m in Grimentz and additionally one in Zinal. The lift system is modern with Gondolas, Cable cars, a funicular in St Luc and fast six man chairlifts.
To get to the other resorts in the area from Grimentz there are free buses - a regular bus goes from Grimentz to Zinal and a slightly more irregular service to the other resorts. If you are a competent skier there is a fantastic long black run from Zinal back to Grimentz which starts steep and then meanders through the forest until you pop out a short walk from the main gondola station in Grimentz. A new cable car link is planned to link Zinal and Grimentz for next season.
Grimentz has many accolades and has been described by Where to Ski and Snowboard 2008 as "Europe's best-kept secret" and an "undiscovered gem". As Where to Ski and Snowboard 2008 says "get there fast before it has time to catch up with the 21st century! It has also recently been featured in the Ski and Board Magazine and many others.
There are lots of places to go in the area ranging from day trips to Zermatt and Sass Fee through to visiting thermal pools for relaxation. The village has many festivals during the year including the famous cow fighting! For children there are lots of activities within a short drive away please ask us for details
