First time in Switzerland, first time skiing in the Alps. We are relatively big skiers and just didn't know what to expect.
We rented the Chalet / Flat the Hotel also owns. Location was unreal. Looking right out over the beginner ski area right into the end of the valley staring at a series of 14k foot peaks going straight up. Also, very near three gondolas and some t-bars to get you going quickly without a lot of pain.
Heidy, Alex and their staff were exceptionally accomodating. We ate pretty much every night at the hotel with our half board deal. A really good deal as it turned out. Relatively inexpensive. We have never been in the situation of 5 course meals for dinner. Each was delicious and large. Stuffed. Need to lose weight. Wines and food were all from the region and great. Rudi's bar out front for an outdoor, after skiing beer / gluhwein was really fun.
The flat was very clean, pretty well stocked, serviced daily and couldn't have been in a better location. Perfect for a family of 4 as it had two bedrooms, a sitting area and a small kitchen. Ski stuff could be left safely in the ski room downstairs.
Couldn't recommend a place more highly. The Supersaxo's that own the place were great. Can't say thank you to them enough for making this a great stay. Saas Fee is more beautiful tha we could have imagined. The town is quaint and not overdone. But it's big enough you can get what you want and eat in a variety of places. The prices for ski gear and groceries was actually quite a bit less than we expected.
Now our number 2 trip ever slightly behind Ngorongoro / Serengeti safari. That good.. That fun. Really neat place and a great stay with the Mistral.
