Ski Holidays Saas-Fee | The Capra 5 Star Hotel, Switzerland

Skiing & Snowboarding in Saas-Fee

Saas-Fee is surrounded by over a dozen mighty peaks over 4000 metres, including Switzerland’s highest mountain, the Dom (4545m). Thanks to its high altitude, Saas-Fee has great snow year-round and has one of the longest ski seasons in Switzerland. There are 170km of groomed slopes for skiers of all levels as well as the ability for extensive off-piste skiing. Superlatives come naturally to Saas-Fee. It’s home to the world’s highest funicular (Metro Alpin), revolving restaurant (threes!xty),  and glacier descent (the Allalin Run). There are a number of winter sports to choose from ensuring that you can always find your interest.

The Capra’s private ski cabin beside the cable car means no trudging through the village carrying boots and skis. Individual lockers are kitted out with glove, boot and helmet warmers, so you can hit the slopes warm and dry or enjoy a cup of coffee or tea as soon as you get back from your day on the slopes.  Whenever you are ready to return to the hotel, our driver will pick you up at the touch of a button.

Snow Shoeing, Sledging & Ice Sports

For non-skiers, other winter sports include sledging, ice-skating, curling, snow-tubing, ice climbing and snowshoe trekking.

Our concierge would be willing to help you organise your ski school according to your personal needs and requirements.

Snow Shoeing

If skiing isn’t for you, snowshoe trekking is definitely worth a go.  There is a wide range of guided tours on offer throughout the valley so you are guaranteed to experience the same beautiful views and clean, crisp air of Saas-Fee!

Sledging

One of the highest roller coasters in the Alps, the Feeblitz bobsleigh run blends in beautifully with the landscape.  With a 360-degree loop followed by a serious of jump bends, it’s not for the faint-hearted. The 5km toboggan run starting at Hannig zips through ravishing glacial scenery. At night, you can toboggan down by torchlight.

Ice Sports

Be it ice skating, curling or ice stock sport, spending a few hours on the ice is one of the oldest winter pleasures in the book. Plus, it’s the perfect activity for groups of friends, just give it a try under the guidance of one of our experts. We can promise you a whole lot of fun, not only because of the spontaneous twists and twirls, but also because afterwards, the mulled wine and apple punch are going to taste better than ever!
