À propos

The Swiss Alps have endless charming villages and ski resorts, Zinal located on the Valley of Valais is surely a spot to put attention to. Flanked by the imposing high peaks of Weisshorn, Bishorn, Zinalrothorn, Obergabelhorn, Matterhorn and Dent Blanche, Zinal offers is an excellent spot for off-piste skiing.

The story of most alpine towns is quite similar; they were used as a place to rest when trying to reach the high peaks. In the case of Zinal, herders would rest in the typical Swiss alpine wooden houses on their journey to take their animals to the green pastures uphill.

Long gone are those days, now Zinal is one of the most popular destinations in the Val d’Anniviers with about 150 years of history. This alpine town is better known for the Zinal-Sorebois ski resort with 70 km of slopes that attract skiers from around the globe. Many come to experience for themselves the amazing feeling of gliding on white powder snow while contemplating the world-known Swiss landscapes.

Unlike most European ski destination, Zinal has a designated free-ride zone, Gardes de Bordon. Attracting the boldest of skiers, Gardes de Bordon off-piste skiers can put to the test their skiing skills against untamed nature. An even more natural approach to skiing is possible in the resort’s 19 km of cross-country ski trails.

A fun fact about this little Swiss mountain town is the Avalanche Training Centre. There, mountain guides and mountain enthusiasts can come and learn how to deal with the potential danger of an avalanche and how to react in case of one.

Zinal has also functioned as a starting point for thousands of mountaineers hoping to conquer one of the mighty mountains surrounding. Sitting at 2,886m is the Grand Mountet Hut which serves as a refuge and starting point for expeditions up Besso, Zinalrothorn, Ober Gabelhorn, Trifthorn, Mont Durand, Pointe de Zinal, Grand Cornier and Dent Blanche. This spot offers panoramic views of the snowed peaks of the mountains that will become lifelong memories!

The mountain scenery of Zinal is dominated by the peak of Weisshorn, the fourth highest in Europe at 4506m. This peak has become almost a Mecca for climbers and mountaineers. Most climbers take 3 days to reach the summit parting from Zermatt, an expedition that has been known to be physically and technically demanding.

For those who want to have a more laid back experience, over 300 km of hiking trails are connected in a network that almost anyone can do. For people seeking their adrenaline fix on land, 150 km of marked routed are available for mountain bikers. These tracks will take to on an exhilarating ride among forest with impressive mountains in the background!

Surrounded by those magnificent mountains, you’ll be inspired and a sense of well-being will invigorate you!
