Ski Resorts Saas Fee

 




Saas Fee ski resort in Switzerland offers some of the most spectacular scenery you can ever see. Ski Resorts Saas FeeFrom 4000-meter high peaks to numerous glaciers, Saas Fee has it all. However its famous neighbour, the Zermatt ski resort, shares much of this territory. It must be mentioned that Saas Fee is perched on a height of 1800 meters, which guarantees a fair amount of snow for the skiing enthusiasts at the resort. Skiing at Saas Fee is not as challenging as in Zermatt and thus makes it a great place for intermediates and beginners. Saas Fee also boasts of an excellent boarding school for snowboarders. However it isn't recommended for middle-ability boarders.

The Saas Fee ski resort also has a number of disadvantages that sometimes seem to threaten its viability. For starters, the ski domain is not very expansive with only 100 km of its own pistes. The lift is also rather insufficient to meet the demands of all the skiers. The Dom Mountain, one of the highest in Switzerland, towers over the whole landscape and hence the resort can suffer form a lack of sunlight in the winters.

The Mittelallalin glacier that is connected by an underground funicular railway provides summer skiing and boarding at Saas Fee. Besides, the resort is also the official training center for the Professional Snowboarding Association.

The Saas Fee ski resort has wonderfully managed to preserve its traditional village charm compared to the Zermatt ski resort. Besides, the resort is also traffic free. When you are not skiing at Saas Fee you can check out the excellent sports center and designer ski shops that are very popular with the visitors. Saas Fee also boasts of the highest revolving restaurant in the world (3500m), which is a major draw. Après-ski is fine, but the eateries at Saas Fee aren't very good and charge exorbitant prices.

Nevertheless, Saas-Fee has a lot of great features, particularly its natural beauty that makes many people fall in love with it. Its skiing isn't awesome and at the same time it has the famous Zermatt resort as a neighbor, which invariably brings in comparisons all the time.
