Even more unusually lower slope depths, currently just under three feet, are also running ahead of average. This is in part as Saas Fee is a high resort by the standards of most traditional Alpine villages, at 5905 feet. Many other traditional resorts in the Alps have suffered as the snow line has been higher than usual with rain falling on them when Saas Fee got snow at village level.
Although high, Saas Fee's lifts stretch up another 5900 feet to 11,810 feet – some of Europe's highest skiing. No surprise realise when you consider that it is a neighbour of Zermatt, which does have Europe's highest ski lifts at 12,792 feet. Both resorts operate summer skiing on their glaciers so there are still months ahead in which to enjoy the deep snow. There is even a reciprocal summer ski ticket so you can visit both areas on one pass.
