Our Top product recommendation!
Half day private lessons
Having a one on one instructor ensures, the lesson is tailored to you, your learning style and your technique. The lesson can move at your speed, 3 hours is enough time to learn some skills apply them on the variety of terrain that Saas Fee has to offer.
As a bonus you have the afternoon to yourself to ski or ride with family or friends and show off your new skills.
We recommend 3 - 5 half day lessons through your stay.
If you want to explore the serene off piste and glacial terrain that Saas Fee has to offer, whether a skier, snowboarder or hiker, Saas Fee Guides will have a winter product to suit you.
They provide a vast array of products and packages to ensure you can get out and explore what Saas Fee and the surrounding valley has to offer.
Included in your chalet is a free booking service for all Mountain Guide activities.
Our Top product recommendation: The Adventure Package - Glacier trekking and via ferrata (2 days). A product allowing non skiers and riders to experience the wonders of the alpine environment.
On day 1, experience the Gorge Alpine via ferrata, navigating the gorge via, suspension bridges, abseiling and pendulums.
On day 2, exploring the off piste glacial terrain of the Hohlaub glacier at 3200m, a snowshoe tour with uninterrupted views of multiple 4000m peaks, touring over to the famous Britannia Hut, before returning to the Felskinn lift station. Both experiences are memorable, and left unchecked by most visitors to Saas Fee, get out there and explore.
An enjoyable activity for all ages, Saas Fee has a 6km sledging track accessed by the Hannig gondola, included in your Saas Fee ski pass.
Either take a day off from skiing and riding, or hire a head torch and choose the night sledging option.
Our top product recommendation: Night Sledging - Tuesdays between 6 - 9pm
Hire a head torch and sledge from the Hannig lift station, enjoy some food at the Hannig Restaurant - then enjoy sledging the 6km run through the forest with only your head torch to light the way!
