Its location is perfect for its purpose. There are no strong winds to disturb the skiers and holiday makers, only beautiful powder that lasts for a long time making the ski season to last longer than in other ski areas. The view includes peaks of four-thousand-meters and in fact there is a cluster of peaks as this area has the biggest concentration of this kind of peaks in Europe, not less than 38 out of the 76 to be found on the continent.

Reaching the resort is easy even if cars do not have access to the area. You can come in for a visit if you happen to be in Cervinia, Italy as you have access to Zermatt through the Theodul pass, or you can come as far as Täsch which is only 5 km away by car and from there you can hop in on one of the shuttle trains that run every 20 minutes, take one of the electrically-powered buses or head for a taxi. The choice is yours. You don’t have to worry about your car as there are plenty of parking spaces in Täsch. A farther point of reference is the town of Visp.
