The quiet pistes are great for beginners to build their confidence on whilst more experienced skiers and boarders will have a fantastic time exploring the incredible off-piste areas. There is a snow park with snowcross pistes at Bendolla, cross-county trails at Zinal and Vercorin, plus a variety of winter walking trails and a toboggan run for those not wanting to ski.
The linked areas of Grimentz and Zinal offer 120km of pistes, with another 100km accessible by bus at neighbouring villages Vercorin, St Luc and Chandolin.
Off the slopes there is plenty to do with a wide choice of restaurants, bars and nightlife. For après ski into the early hours there are a number of pubs open late, and if you're looking to hit the dance floor, check out Disco Shadock.
