In the sun-bathed Valais, with its 47 four thousand metre high peaks, winter can truly unfold its many faces of beauty. Discover the greatest ski resorts!
The Blatten - Belalp ski resort: an insider tip among the Valais ski resorts, at an altitude of 3112 metres with 60 kilometres of challenging pistes. Here you can also marvel at 17 Valaisian four-thousanders and the Great Aletsch Glacier (UNESCO-World Heritage Site).
Modern ropeways are an essential element of winter tourism for millions of visitors from all over the world each year. This is why, over the last few years, billions of Swiss francs have been invested in new projects in Upper Valais. The goal is to provide our guests with the finest conditions and the best possible infrastructure for their well-deserved holidays.
In the summer, you will find migratory birds and mountain climbers roaming on the Belalp plateau, and in the winter, sports enthusiasts riding down endless slopes. Since 2006 we have been bringing our guests, both in the winter, as well as in the summer, to an altitude of more than 2500 metres above sea level. The longest six person chairlift in Switzerland offers not only more capacity, but also greater comfort.
