If the limited extent of its slopes doesn’t bother you then few resorts offer greater snow reliability than Saas-Fee.

 

Granted, this corner of Switzerland is rather dry, but with most of the slopes between 2500m and 3500m, its average skiing height is unrivalled in the Alps. It also boasts one of Europe’s finest glaciers where quality snow is virtually assured.

 

If Saas-Fee has has one small weakness it is the runs back to resort, which are steeper and can be worn, icy or slushy, especially early or late in the season.

 

Snow-making is adequate rather than spectacular.
