Saas Fee

Saas Fee in Switzerland is a car free resort BUT…

Behind the main parking structure on the way into the resort is a decent sized Aire with views down the valley. There is a barrier on entry and you pay for parking at the machines in the parking structure – just as if you were leaving a car there. 

There are facilities for fresh and waste water, a small heated hut with toilets/sinks and a few electrical hook-ups. No charge for any of these over and above the parking charge.

It’s about a 15 minute walk to the main ski lifts.

It was quiet when we were there off-season, but I’ve heard it gets very busy at peak times – you’ll be lucky to get a spot on the edge with the views!

The resort itself is a very pretty traditional Swiss village, at 1800m altitude. It offers 145km of Piste and rises up to 3600m so is very snow-sure (the glacier offers summer-ski opportunities too), here is Muffin at the end of September!:-

Unfortunately the prices are typically Swiss – for both ski passes and food etc. in the resort this is the most expensive place we have visited so far!

  1. Worth looking at the Saas Fee WinterCard –
    last year we paid £230 per person and that covered lift passes for the whole winter – great value if you are able to list for a week or more

  2. Hi, Can you remember how much the car park was? I’m thinking of motorhoming there for a week.
    Thanks
