When you think of winter holidays in the mountains, what comes to mind? Nendaz, naturally.
Nestled in the heart of the “4 Vallées”, the biggest Ski domain of Switzerland, this friendly Swiss destination,half way between Chamonix and Zermatt, is home to perfect slopes, amazing views and lots of activities.
With over 400 kilometers of ski runs, Nendaz is simply the skiers’ and snowboarders’ paradise. Equipped with snow cannons to guarantee you the best of skiing all winter long, our ski runs await daredevils of all levels, with varied terrains and altitudes.
In a word, forge your own path on our 7 freetracks, slopes that are secured but non-prepared, or stick to pre-planned courses. And don’t forget to challenge your friend in our Wood Park…the only thing left for you to determine is how brave you’re feeling.
As well as fantastic slopes, Nendaz hosts a variety of non-skiing activities set to please every traveller.
A sledging run, a snow tubing run, an outdoor ice rink, a weekly activities programme organised by the tourist office and lots of other events will give you hours of fun.
Its location makes it an ideal place to explore on foot, with 100 km of marked winter walks, 6 marked snowshoe trails and 9km of cross-country ski runs with breath-taking views of the surrounding mountains, such as the Mont-Blanc and the Matterhorn.
All these activities are enough to leave even the most energetic individuals in need of some down time.
Lucky for you, the area is home to over 30 restaurants showcasing the best of Euro-cuisine and 16 bars and pubs.
And after an incredible but exhausting day on the mountain, why not relax in one of the best spas in the Alps “The Spa des Bisses”: spread over 2200m2, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, sauna and hammam, you’re sure to leave feeling rested.
For the shopaholics amongst you, just half an hour from Nendaz is the town of Sion. The charming, old quarters are not to be missed.
With everything this area has to offer you’d expect a hefty price tag, but, with Nendaz, that just isn’t the case.
