Description

Former and current ski stars Pirmin, Heidi and Silvan Zurbriggen learned their sport in the family-friendly Furggstalden-Heidbodme skiing area. But Saas-Almagell offers much more than wide downhill slopes. The cross-country trails stretch up the valley from Eiu Alp directly beneath the imposing dam wall to Saas-Balen. The ice field offers plenty of fun sporting activities, such as sledging, snowshoe walking and winter hiking. Cool sports to fire you up!
