Saas-Fee is a charming traditional mountain village in the canton of Valais in Switzerland. This car-free village lies on a high plateau 1800 meters above sea level, nestling amongst the icy dome of the Allalinhorn and the rocky group of the Mischabel chain. The ski resort is based at the foot of the Dom, which although not as internationally well known as the Matterhorn, is, in fact, Switzerland's highest mountain, and one of thirteen 4,000 meters (13,120 feet) plus peaks surrounding the village.
In 2012 the results of a questionnaire for "Best ski resort" with over 40‘000 guests were presented. Saas-Fee / Saastal was voted best Swiss Ski Resort. Internationally it was even voted to second rank out of 55 top ski destinations in Austria, Germany, Italy, France, and Switzerland. In terms of snow reliability, slope preparation, and coziness, Saas-Fee/Saastal hit top status.
