Zinal ski area comprises 3 separate traditional ski villages, with huge acreage of freeskiing terrain. From piste side powder, and easy access tree skiing to high alpine bowls and couloirs, there is fun and challenging skiing in equal measure. Snow sure, with epic views across some of the most stunning 4000m Valais Giants, this place is thrilling!
Andy Nelson & Andy Townsend will run the course, with maximum 8 clients, mixing coaching on and off piste skiing with short tours, using the lift system to maximise ski time…with some skinning too, so you’ve earned your beer at the end of the day!
Silky cold snow just off the Zinal/Grimentz lifts!
We will be staying at the wonderful, luxurious Chalet Edelweiss near Zinal, in twin rooms. (Single occupancy available subject to team numbers and a Chf300 supplement) A regular bus service takes us to the lifts, allowing us to ski back to the chalet through the trees!
TRAVEL & LOGISTICS
Zinal is in the Valais region of Switzerland. Access from Geneva airport is by a rail journey along Lake Geneva (Lac Leman) then the lovely Rhone valley, passing castles and forts perched on lofty rocks, and vineyards originally cultivated by Roman settlers. Arriving at Sierre, public buses parked right outside the station take you to the door of Chalet Edelweiss, where a warm fire awaits!
