The Swiss Alps region
Saas-Fee is recognised as one of Switzerland's more family friendly ski resorts with lots of flat sunny slopes for beginners and plenty of supervised activities for children. Saas-Fee's piste skiing is quite extensive and snow conditions are usually first class. In Saas-Fee there are endless off piste routes to explore, many of them starting from peaks which must first be climbed. If you want to notch up ascents of 4000m peaks, followed by ski descents of half that figure, Saas-Fee is the place to do it.
The ski lifts are no more than 7 minutes walk from the chalet or in 4 minutes via the electric bus. Saas-Fee claims a choice of 48 different slopes once those of the adjacent villages of Saas-Grund, Saas-Balen and Saas-Almagell have been factored in. (The villages are united by an "all areas" lift pass, which grants access to a total of 145km of pistes. There are no lift links between them, but the local post bus provides free transport every half hour.)
Saas-Fee lies at a chunky 1,800m, with the slopes rising to a snow-sure 3,500m and glacier skiing thrown in for good measure. Saas-Fee offers 22 lifts, including 3 cable cars, 1 funicular railway, 5 gondolas, 2 chairlifts, the remainder being surface lifts (draglifts). Other activities include snowboarding, paragliding, hang gliding, and tobogganing.
Saas-Fee is a traditional mountain village of narrow streets, lined by old chalets and free of cars. Special electric taxis and buses operate to transport people around. Saas-Fee has a wide variety of shops, from sophisticated boutiques to sports stores to corner shops selling regional specialities and fresh produce. Most of them are managed by the owners, who offer expert friendly advice in several language.
There's also a good range of eating in Saas-Fee with around 50 restaurants and cafés ranging from Michelin-starred gourmet dining at one of Switzerland's top restaurants to a variety of cuisine from Europe and around the world. There are plenty of cafés, bars and pizzerias and 11 mountain restaurants, making it easy to find a light bite to eat day or night. With around 20 bars, many of them situated at the foot of the slopes and 3 night clubs there's also plenty of après ski to be enjoyed.
