From an altitude of 3600 m down into the village, located at 1800 m, you can ski on easy to intermediate slopes. For ambitious skiers the resort also offers difficult slopes. The slopes are prepared on a daily basis. For the lower parts of the slopes snow making systems are available. In winter snowboarders can use a snowpark. In summer a halfpipe, boarder-x, jumps etc. are constructed on the glacier.
For children this is an ideal area to learn how to ski. Directly on the edge of the village there is the possibility of using a practice lift. These practice slopes are quite flat.
The ski school in the village has its own baby lift.
In the village there is also a kindergarten.
With its 22 lifts and 100 km of prepared pistes, the winter ski region of Saas Fee forms the heart of the entire ski region. In addition to Saas-Fee, there is a further ski area in the nearby region of Kreuzboden-Hochsaas above Saas-Grund. Twenty kilometres of winter walking trails and an 8-km-long cross-country ski trail are provided for non-Alpine skiers. Various toboggan runs, such as the 11-km-long toboggan run from Kreuzboden to Saas-Grund offer alternatives to skiing.
The Pearl of the Alps lies on a high plateau of the Saas Valley, above the other three Saas communities. Saas-Grund in the center of the valley is an ideal starting point for the high altitude trails. Saas Almagell's main attraction is Mattmark, a natural dam. Saas Balen is home to the Late Baroque circular church, a building of national significance, and the roaring Fell Brook in the center of the village.
Saas Valley is distinguished by 350 kilometers of thematic and hiking trails as well as special offerings for families and children. The ski region has 150 kilometers of pistes of all levels of difficulty, which are considered to be snow-assured. Twenty-two railways lead to the pistes, including the well-known Metro Alpin (Alpine Metro), which takes passengers to the world's highest revolving restaurant.
Up until the 14th century there was only one community in the Saas Valley: Saas. Four villages arose out of Saas - of those four Saas Fee, also known as "The Pearl of the Alps", is the most renowned; 13 four thousand meter peaks surround the glacier village, which is located at an altitude of 1800 meters above sea level.
Allalin ice pavilion – the secrets of the glacier are vented for visitors within the permanent ice.
Revolving restaurant – a far-reaching vista across the mountainscape is offered up by the revolving restaurant on the glacier of the Mittelallalin.
Alpin gorge – fixed rope route crossing of the spectacular brook gorge using rope bridges and tyrolienne cables; only with a mountain guide.
Adventure park – suspension rope park with courses of varying degrees of difficulty, in front of an impressive glacier backdrop.
Feeblitz toboggan run – with its 55-degree incline, the tobogganing fun already starts during the ascent. Evening tobogganing on the illuminated route is a special experience.
