The Swiss Alps region
Nendaz is one of the best kept secrets in the Swiss Alps. It lies at the centre of the world class Verbier - 4 valleys ski area. Unlike most ski resorts, Nendaz and the surrounding area is an all year-round resort.
From mountain biking or walking on the high alpine passes through to relaxing by the open-air pool or spas and exploring the many local vineyards, there is something for all the family throughout the year.
Nendaz - the all year round resort: Most people head to the Alps in Winter because of the snow. But the people who live here know that the mountains can be equally rewarding throughout the year. For skiers and boarders the 4 Valleys offers over 400km of marked runs - as well as plenty of unmarked stuff for the experts and mentalists. And for walking and mountain biking the opportunities are virtually limitless, with the lift network operating in July and August. if there isn't snow on the ground there's still plenty to do and see in the mountains around Nendaz. From the top of Mont-Fort down to the bottom of the Rhone valley are countless miles of paths covering the full range of Alpine terrain from high mountain glacier to gentle meadow. Some of the best walking is along the network of bisses. Built by the farmers of the Valais to bring water down to the dry lower slopes, the irrigation channels date back as early as 1435, and their accompanying paths criss-cross the mountainside, offering outstanding views.
Kids / Spas: Nendaz is a great resort for families, with plenty to entertain the kids. In winter there is a children snow park up at Tracouet with a 'moving carpet' lift for tinies, and a tubing and sledging area. The ski schools take kids from the age of 3 and the creche in Nendaz is able to take infants from 18 months. For those with younger children, our concierge service offers a personal babysitting service.
In summer there's lots for kids to do around the resort. In the village there is a large adventure playground with trampolines with bungee harnesses. There is also an open air swimming pool. There are a number of thermal spas within easy driving access of Nendaz, open all year round. The closest are at Saillon, a dramatic medieval fortress town in the valley beneath Nendaz. Also close to Nendaz is the boutique ski and spa resort of Ovronnaz, above Saillon, on the north side of the Rhone Valley.
Summer attractions : Nendaz is an ideal location for mountain biking and offers tracks for all levels in a glorious setting. You can use the lift systems to give your mountain bike a chance to really deserve its name. Novices as well as confirmed sportsmen/women can find an itinerary suited to their level. For those looking for a challenge the Tour de Mont Fort is a 48km route which provides the opportunity to enjoy the spectacular scenery of the Nendaz, Verbier and La Tzoumaz ski areas, combining glaciers and alpine meadows in the tour. For those who want to watch the action, the Grand Raid passes through Nendaz. with its 132km and a variation in altitude of 4600m, the Grand Raid is the longest mountain bike race in the world. With more than 4000 participants, including some of the best cyclists in this field, the race leaves from Verbier and passes though Nendaz en route, attracting many spectators every year who gather along the route.
Ski: With 92 different lifts serving 412 km of marked runs (and a wealth of off-piste), there's plenty in the 4 Valleys to keep skiers and boarders of all abilities occupied for many a season. The more demanding terrain is in the southern part of the ski area, which is as easily accessible from Nendaz as it is from its more famous neighbour, Verbier. The un-pisted itinerary runs from Mont-Fort (3330m) and Mont-Gelé, and the Tortin and Gentianes routes, all demand respect from the experienced skier. To the north are the gentler, groomed pistes above Veysonnaz and Thyon - although the 1km vertical descent down the red from Ethérolla to Mayens-De-L'Ours - including the world cup run 'La Piste de l'Ours' - would be testing without a break. Nendaz itself sits in the centre of this outstanding ski area, and has swift links to the neighbouring valleys via the Tracouet gondola, just ten minutes walk from the chalet. There is also a regular free shuttle bus service between Nendaz and Siviez.
Other Activities: spa baths, vineyards and wine tasting
