Best tips for Saas-Fee
Saas-Fee is a captivating place – a sort of miniature Zermatt without the conspicuous consumption. As well as the charm factor there’s the super-reliable snow: you spend most of your days here at an altitude – between 2500m and 3500m – that is unrivalled in the Alps. It’s a compelling combination. But we tend to drop in here for a day or two at a time, so the limited extent and challenge of the slopes is not a worry; if we were here for a week, we’d soon be taking trips to Saas-Grund and even Zermatt. Saas-Fee is a traditional mountain village of narrow streets lined by old chalets and free of cars, which made a recent visitor feel ‘safe allowing the children to wander the streets’. It’s not entirely free of traffic, though: electric minibuses, taxis and vans provoke complaints, although they’re not nearly as much of a nuisance as they are in Zermatt, over the hill. The standard lift pass also covers Saas-Almagell and Saas-Grund not far away in the valley, and the latter in particular is well worth a visit – one trusted reporter preferred it to Saas-Fee. Trips to Zermatt are time-consuming but possible.
