Saas Grund (altitude of 1559 m) in the Swiss region of Wallis (Valais) is beautifully located in the Saasdal, together with the villages of Saas-Fee, Saas-Almagell and Saas-Balen. Enjoy breathtaking natural scenery while staying at a chalet in Saas-Grund. The charming mountain village of Saas-Grund has a traditional centre and is the sunniest village in the valley. It is less sophisticated than Saas-Fee, resulting in more attractive prices and a quieter atmosphere than the popular neighbouring village of Saas-Fee! With fewer facilities and entertainment options, Saas-Grund is perfect for those seeking quiet and relaxation. While staying in Saas-Grund, you can always visit the neighbouring village of Saas-Fee for nightlife and shopping (there is a free shuttle bus). Saas-Grund has both a natural and manmade ice skating rink and, for the little ones, there is a ‘Hohsi’ day care centre at the bottom of the lift. Recommendation: don’t miss the fantastic winter walking routes from Saas Grund! Enjoy a comfortable, relaxed and activity-filled stay in a ski chalet or apartment in Saas-Grund!
From Saas-Grund, you can take the gondola to the Kreuzboden mountain (altitude of 2400 m) or even higher to Hohsaas (3100 m with breathtaking panoramic views of mountaintops over 4,000 m!). Here you will find the sunny, attractive and snow-sure skiing area of Kreuzboden-Hohsaas. This ski region is small and offers 34 km of slopes: easy and wide slopes for beginners and a challenging glacier slope (from Hohsaas) for advanced skiers. As far as numbers of kilometres are concerned, it has fewer than Saas-Fee, but that is what makes it a great destination for less demanding skiers and for families with young children! Kreuzboden has a kids park called Hohsi Snowland, where young skiers can play and learn to ski. There is also a fun park, junior park, ‘Rennparcours’, Buckel slope, and an 11 km-long sledding slope from Kreuzboden to Saas-Grund. At the bottom, in Saas-Grund, there is a cross-country track, ice skating rink and snowtubing slope (200 m). If you are looking for more ski and snowboarding options and activities like ice climbing (or a ride on the Feeblitz bobsled run), you can visit the ski area of Saas-Fee, where there is also a freestyle park! In a nutshell, if you are looking for a winter sports holiday in beautiful surroundings, a quiet village with excellent skiing, rent a holiday home, apartment or ski chalet in Saas-Grund!
