Niched in the Anniviers Valley, in the heart of the French speaking Canton of Valais, Zinal – base elevation 1’670 m – is surrounded by 5 spectacular peaks appropriately named the Imperial Crown, the most prominent of which, the lofty Weisshorn – 4th highest summit in Europe –, towers at an altitude of 4’506 m. The resort will equally thrill sports buffs or families throughout all seasons. Whether as a departure point for several hikes to its summits or as a pleasant halt for mountain lovers as well as visitors looking for a nice meal, Zinal with its frosted peaks and natural beauty is sure to enchant everyone.

70 Km of slopes in the Zinal-Sorebois skiing area in an imposing panorama of high mountains. The exceptional snow cover of the northeast side of the mountains guarantees good skiing conditions right up to the end of the season. We have invested in a new artificial snow system of 77 snowmachines. 77 guns covering more than 35 acres have been installed. The slopes are in excellent conditions since the beginning of the season. Val d’Anniviers and its 5 skiing areas offer over 200 km of slopes all included in one ski pass.
