THE FREE REPUBLIC OF HOLIDAYS OF SAAS-FEE - THE TOP SKIING DESTINATION IN SWITZERLAND The Saas Valley is surrounded by 18 four-thousand-metre peaks! An overwhelming mountain and glacier world that quite simply amazes all who see it. Well-groomed pistes from 3600m above sea level right down into the village. Regarded as the most snow-secure ski area in the Alps, a wide variety of cable cars comfortably escort winter sports fans up the mountain. And the Free Republic of Holidays also has other winter sports offerings to entice you: tobogganing, ice climbing, snow shoe trails, winter hiking, curling, cross-country skiing and much more. Welcome to the Free Republic of Holidays of SaasFee, the Eldorado of winter sports in the midst of the highest mountains in Switzerland!
