Children born in 2001 or later, accompanied by an adult, ski for free in the Saas-Fee valley.

Saas-Grund is a village at the heart of the Saas Valley. It is the ideal starting place for undertaking the legendary high-altitude Saas trails. From Hohsaas (3100 metres) it offers panoramic views of 18 peaks reaching 4000 metres.

The Saas-Fee valley boasts more than 145 kilometres of groomed pistes with something for all levels. Snowboarders and freestyle skiers flock to the Freestyle Park at the Mittelallalin for its half-pipe, kickers, rails, and chill zone.
