logo

The Saas-Grund ski area is spread over 35 kilometers of pistes at the foot of the Mischabel group in the Swiss canton of Valais. Connected to the neighboring ski resorts Saas-Fee and Saas-Almagell, the ski resort of Saas-Grund stretches from the center 1560 m to the Hohsaas at 3100 m with pistes for every level. The entire ski area of Saas-Fee with 150 km of pistes can be traveled with the "Destinationspass". Snow and sun are 100% guaranteed in the ski resort Saas-Grund. Due to its south-eastern orientation, the ski resort benefits from at least 300 sunny days a year. The proximity to the high Alpine peaks and the extensive network of snow cannons ensure lush snow conditions throughout the season.

For beginners there are wide pistes in the lower part of the ski area around the village lift Ziebel and the village "Unter dem Berg". Ski professionals have two difficult pistes on the glaciers that are above Saas-Grund. 8 ski lifts (5 drag lifts and 3 gondola lifts) ensure the access to the pistes. Via the middle station at Kreuzboden, a gondola lift with 8 seats leads to the heart of the Hohsaas glacier area. There, in this area covered with a thick layer of eternal ice and snow, the best skiers will find steep pistes and the most difficult pistes of the Saas-Grund ski area.

Cross-country skiing, tobogganing and popular ski races

The ski resort Saas-Grund offers many winter sports. Cross-country skiers have 32 km of routes in the entire ski area of Saas-Fee. The routes lead through the larch forests, over pastures and along the frozen river Sasser Vispa. In addition to the experience of skiing in intact nature and in the purest air, the cross-country skiers on these routes can also enjoy the splendid Alpine panorama in all its fullness. Schlittenfans offers Saas-Grund the longest piste in the Saas Valley: 11 km between Kreuzboden (2400 m) and Saas-Grund (1559 m). Both during the day and in the evening, the ride takes about half an hour. With a total height difference of 841 m, the route overcomes gentle pistes and is thus suitable for all sled fans, children and adults. There is also a 200m snowtubing piste with a vertical drop of 60m.

Saas-Grund holds several popular races that are open to all. In March, the annual horn sled race takes place. Teams of 3 people (driver, brakeman, runners) compete against each other on this crazy but very amusing downhill. A true pleasure for everyone in a fun and laid-back atmosphere. If you make your holiday in the ski area in March, you can admire another original competition oe even take part in it: the nostalgic ski race. Consisting of the two categories of nostalgia and retro, this colorful event focuses on the originality of ski equipment and clothing. Not necessarily the speed or the technique, but rather the appearance of the skier. Guaranteed pleasure for both the participants and the spectators.

children's paradise

Saas-Grund is a very family-friendly ski resort. The Kinderland "Hohsi Snowland" is a real winter paradise for children. This 15,000 m2 site is located on the Kreuzoden, located at 2,400 meters above the sea level. It can be reached on foot, by gondola and thanks to the extra-long magic carpet "Sunkid". In the park there are teepees with Indian totems, seesaws and various equipment for playing and learning how to ski. Caregivers support beginners on the different, specially designed for their needs course.

In the Hohsi Snowland there are also swings, a rope lift and a hut for well-deserved rest after ski lessons and a heated lounge with play areas. The Kreuzboden mountain restaurant overlooking the Kinderland allows parents to watch the progress of their little novice skiers. In January the "Kidsweek" takes place in Saas-Grund. The program includes several free offers for children: ski equipment, ski pass, ski lessons and a children's menu in the restaurant.
