Welcome to Saas Fee
Nowadays, the benefits of the popularity of winter sports and a worldwide tourism boom are clear to see. Saas Fee is an affluent, chic, car-free resort where every well-to-do skier and hiker wants to be. Modern chalets surround the village, but its commercial heart, well endowed with old timber chalets and 19th-century granaries built on stilts to keep the rats out, retains a definite old-world charm.
You'll have to drive or hop on a bus to get here though. Unlike neighbouring Zermatt, one valley over, Saas Fee is not accessible by train.
