Piste:
This idyllic spot is particularly popular among hiking fans in summer, with its picturesque side valleys, the Suonen Trail to Saas-Grund, the Adventure Trail from Furggstalden to the Almagelleralp, and the narrow Valais migration routes to Italy over the mystic Monte Moro and Antrona passes.

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!
