Ski Saas-Fee by Train

100 km of piste between 1483-3600m

One of the great Alpine resorts, Saas-Fee is high, the slopes are north-facing and there is a glacier so there is skiing almost all year-round and a long peak season. Ecologically it is rated the best resort in the Alps, it is car-free, has a lively night life and is very scenic. The runs are good, not as good or anything like as extensive as nearby Zermatt, but lots of excellent piste for intermediates and very few flats. Nearby Saas-Grund and Saas-Almagell are often uncrowded and have some off-piste that isn't tracked out when that at Saas-Fee is.

Where to Eat and Party in Saas-Fee

The Allalin has the highest revolving restaurant in the world, although the food and service are unexceptional. Bergrestaurant Spielboden (at the top station of the gondola of the same name) is a well-regarded mountain restaurant (+41 27 957 22 12). Mühle is a good place to grab a drink at the end of a hard day on the slopes and Popcorn, near the bus station, is a popular shop cum bar cum nightclub for later on. Don Ciccio Ristorante-Pizzeria is recommended for good value Italian food and wine (+41 27 957 40 20).
