If you have visited this resort not too long ago, why not add your own short review to this page?
Saas-Fee is one of our favourite places – a sort of miniature Zermatt without the conspicuous consumption. As well as the charm factor there’s the super-reliable snow: you spend most of your days here at an altitude – between 2500m and 3500m – that is unrivalled in the Alps. It’s a compelling combination.
We tend to drop in here for a day or two at a time, so the limited extent and challenge of the slopes is not a worry; if we were here for a week, we’d soon be taking trips to Saas-Grund and even Zermatt. But if you don’t mind skiing the same flattering slopes every day, Saas-Fee takes some beating
