It doesn't matter whether you're sports mad, a wellness fan, in search of peace and quiet, or more family-oriented. The largest thermal spa and wellness resort in the Alps offers a wide range of relaxation options and activity programs amidst the fascinating Valais mountains at approx. 1,400 metres above sea level.

"Leukerbad / Loeche-les-Bains" by any other name

The Swiss resort is also known as Gemmi,Torrent and has common misspellings:

The direction which the various Leukerbad / Loeche-les-Bains slopes face can make or break your ski holiday. To guarantee good snow conditions, choose a resort with piste which face the right way for the time of year you're travelling.

- In the coldest winter months of January and February pick a resort with sunny south facing slopes, so your days on the snow doesn't feel like a polar expedition. Conversely, in the warmest spring skiing months of March and especially April, a resort with cool and shady north facing trails will ensure you're not riding on slush, but benefitting from best late season snow. The best destinations have areas which face in all directions so that you're guaranteed greating conditions whatever the weather. Leukerbad / Loeche-les-Bains has slopes facing S, W.
