February is a brilliant time to visit the charming resort of Saas Fee – it’s when the piste conditions are at their peak, and the pretty village is most likely to be blanketed in heaps of fresh powder snow. Switzerland is a great half term destination too because the Brit-orientated resorts in France and Austria can get a bit crowded, while Saas Fee on the other hand is celebrated for its quiet pistes.
Families are very well catered for here with excellent nursery slopes and 3 ski schools to choose from. Steer energetic youngsters towards the Kid’s Fun Park, which has lots to keep them busy: animal figurines, a magic carpet, slalom run, and a ‘snow carousel’ – Switzerland’s much more exciting and snowy answer to a park roundabout. There’s plenty to entertain adults too, with a good range of beginner and intermediate slopes, a snowpark and some challenging black runs up on the glacier. When you’ve all tired of skiing (if that’s possible!) go for a family toboggan trip down from ‘Hannig’, a mountain with lots of non-ski activities including some lovely walking paths.
There are lots of top-class hotels, chalets and apartments in Saas Fee to choose from, and you’ll see from our prices that the common misconception that Switzerland is expensive certainly isn’t the case.
