1st Snow & Music Weekend in Saas-Fee

The first Snow & Music Weekend will be taking place in the glacier village from 17 – 19 April 2009. Spring skiing, congenial atmosphere and music – that’s what a weekend in April looks like in Saas-Fee.
Visitors will be enticed by wonderful slopes bathed in the Spring sunshine, an attractive range of package offers including ski pass, a congenial atmosphere and thrilling music! The local Valais band Glen of Guinness will be kicking off the ski weekend on Friday, 17 April. With its sounds of Ireland the group will be setting the mood in the village square, starting promptly at the Aprés-Ski time of 5 p.m. Ensuring the right holiday atmosphere for this special weekend from the very outset. And the best thing about this musical start to the Spring skiing weekend: the concert is free!
With this musical and good-humoured start to the weekend, under the warm Spring sunshine skiers will then finally be enticed onto the wonderful slopes on Saturday and Sunday because high up on the slopes between 3’600 and 1'800 metres above sea level the snow conditions remain perfect well far into the Spring.
There’s something special about the performance in the glacier village: it is one of the last concerts to be staged by Glen of Guinness until November 2009. The group’s Ireland adventure will then be finally over. The last project of the legendary band: 17 years of music - 17 concerts. What this means precisely is that 17 selected venues are being specially chosen to once again hear the group perform its 30 greatest hits and best songs. Saas-Fee/Saastal is one of those specially selected locations.
Information on the concert as well as attractive package offers is available from the Saas-Fee/Saastal Tourist Office.
