Description

Undiscovered Zinal is a charming village, well away from the crowds, nestled high in the French-speaking region of Switzerland, between Verbier and Zermatt. The pistes here are quiet and there are no lift queues. 90% of the piste skiing lies above 2000m and is north-east facing, so good snow is guaranteed. There are 120kms of pistes including those at nearby Grimentz, which is connected by a new cable car. There are excellent beginner slopes and huge amounts of off-piste for the experts. Three other resorts are covered by the lift pass – St Luc, Chandolin and Vercorin - doubling the pisted runs to 225kms.

The apartment is on the third (top) floor of the building with a large south-facing balcony and offers high quality accommodation for 8 people. It comprises two bathrooms and four bedrooms, three of which can be either double or twin, with the fourth containing bunk-beds. A sofa bed in the second lounge area can accommodate two additional guests. The kitchen area is contemporary

Location description from owner

The Swiss Alps region

Zinal is a charming village in an idyllic setting, well away from the crowds, nestled high in the the southern Valais mountains in the French-speaking region of Switzerland. Zinal is the gateway to the ‘Imperial Crown’: four permanently snow covered 4000m peaks with the Matterhorn sitting just behind them.Zinal offers everything you could want from an alpine resort, without the crowds and expensive shops and restaurants of larger resorts such as neighbouring Zermatt and Verbier.

Zinal

Zinal is the perfect alpine village for a mountain holiday. It is small enough that everything is within a short walk, but nonetheless has plenty of facilities. Here is a map of the village and an aerial photo. There are at least six restaurants and three bars, along with two supermarkets, a bakery, two mountain gear / ski / snowboard hire shops, post office, newsagent, cash machine and a tourist information and mountain guide office. There is also a regular bus service throughout the valley.Zinal is a beautiful place to simply relax, but for non-flyers, non-skiers, or those wishing to try something else, there are plenty of activities available on the doorstep or within the valley.SUMMER ACTIVITIESIn summer, Zinal is also a perfect base for Mountain Biking, Rock Climbing, Mountaineering and Walking. There are many mountain huts in the area where you can stay overnight, allowing extended trips into the high mountains. In Zinal there are also picnic/bbq sites, a wildlife observation point, tennis courts, an indoor swimming pool, mini golf, a Tyrollean zip wire, and tandem paragliding or hang gliding flights. In the valley there is also an outdoor swimming pool, bungee jumping, canyoning, via ferrata, fishing and day trips to alpine lakes and glaciers. A gym, sauna, massage and beauty treatments are also available.WINTER ACTIVITIESThe winter scenery here is spectacular. Zinal is surrounded by four 4000m peaks and behind them lies the Matterhorn. Ninety percent of the piste skiing lies between 2000m and 3000m and is mostly north-east facing, so good snow is guaranteed. There are 120 kms of pistes including those at nearby Grimentz, which is connected by a black run or by a 10 minute free bus ride. There are excellent beginner slopes, an extensive free ride area and huge amounts of off-piste for the experts. Have a look at the piste map.The cable car takes you up 800 metres to 2440 metres in under 10 minutes, so you can be skiing 20 minutes after leaving the apartment.The are three other resorts in the valley covered by the same lift pass and accessible by bus from Zinal – St Luc, Chandolin and Vercorin - offering a variety of skiing and snowboarding conditions and doubling the pisted runs to 225 kms. St Luc and Chandolin are more south-west facing so are a sunnier alternative in December and January.In winter there is also cross country skiing, sledging, and snow shoeing, including a snow shoeing trip to the glacier. There is ice skating on a natural ice rink, introductory ice climbing courses, and tandem paragliding or hang gliding flights. There is also the indoor swimming pool and a gym, sauna, massage and beauty treatments are available.

“Excellent apartment in a very nice resort”

Reviewed 8 Jan 2013

Our extended family of 8 adults spent the New Year's week in Zinal. The apartment was perfect for our group - enough space and well designed. It is also very well situated, close to the town centre, but off any noisy streets. It is within 200 m of the ski-lift and even closer to the home-run's end-point. The evenings were spent playing games around the cosy fire-place. A big advantage is the fact that the TV room is separate from the living area. The snow conditions and weather were good and the pistes were well-prepared. The drag-lifts were a bit of a challenge for some of the snowboarders in the group, but overall a very nice ski area for both skiers and snowboarders.
