The Grimentz - Zinal ski area offers magnificent well groomed high altitude pistes and amazing off-piste and ski-touring opportunities. In addition, the Grimentz-Zinal ski pass includes the St Luc and Chandolin ski areas which are connected by the free ski buses that run throughout the season within Val d'Anniviers.
It is no surprise that Ski Club Great Britain provides off-piste holidays in Grimentz! As well as this, there are international competitions held in Grimentz-Zinal and many national ski teams use Grimentz - Zinal as a training base.
The joys of skiing in Val d'Anniviers include the variety of terrain and the amazing views that open up as you ski. As well as the 4000m high Alps and the magnificent open views across the Rhone valley to the Bernese Oberland, you get the rock faces and lichens, forests and chamois of Val d'Anniviers.
The ski lifts are just opposite our apartment, the Grimentz "home-run" piste ends on the other side of the road to our front door and the bus stop is about 100m away, so no hastle carrying your skis!
There are ski schools and ski guides for all levels and we can provide you with details of private instructors and back country ski leaders. The ski hire shops are literally on the doorstep of our apartment.
As well as skiing and snowboarding, you could spend time cross-country skiing, tobogganing, para-skiing, snow-shoeing and ice skating, or making snowmen or drinking hot chocolate on the terraces of the mountain cafes! Grimentz offers something for everyone.
