The Swiss Alps region
La Tzoumaz is a little known haven in the extensive 4 Vallees ski area. The resort, with its own 40km of pistes on snow-sure north facing slope, links directly into the Savoleyres area of Verbier. The 8 man telecabine takes you straight to the top of Savoleyres in 9 minutes and from there you can ski to the Medran lift in the centre of Verbier in just10 minutes. Verbier's charms and vast expanse of skiing both on and off piste are reknowned but the charms of the Savoleyres area are less well known. This is a quieter, family friendly mountain with something for everyone including a 10km toboggan run, 3 new shoeshoe routes, natural ice rink and Heli-skiing.
In summer Verbier is 20minutes drive away via the summer road and the vineyards and fruit farms of Valais are laid out in the Rhone valley below. Thermal baths at Saillon are 20 minutes away and golf courses in easy reach.
Chalet La Couronne has a private ski- lift just 25m from the front door. From there a 1 minute ride takes you to the main La Tzoumaz piste.
The Chalet is 300 m from the main ski lift, where there are lift-tickets, ski-rent, bakery and bar facilities. Here too is the Tourist information Office, Ski-School office and La Tzoumaz Kids Club. The main village centre is a further 200m where there are choices for ski-rent, a newsagent, supermarket with butchery and bakery, pizzeria, bars hotels and a night club, plus a cash machine.
