Zinal, Canton of Valais, Swiss Alps
Undiscovered Zinal is a charming village, well away from the crowds, nestled high in the French-speaking region of Switzerland, between Verbier and Zermatt. The pistes here are quiet and there are no lift queues. 90% of the piste skiing lies above 2000m and is north-east facing, so good snow is guaranteed. There are 120kms of pistes including those at nearby Grimentz, which is connected by a new cable car. There are excellent beginner slopes and huge amounts of off-piste for the experts. Three other resorts are covered by the lift pass – St Luc, Chandolin and Vercorin - doubling the pisted runs to 225kms.

The apartment is on the third (top) floor of the building with a large south-facing balcony and offers high quality accommodation for 8 people. It comprises two bathrooms and four bedrooms, three of which can be either double or twin,...

Reviewed June 4, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

The apartment itself was great for our family of four, as we used only the upstairs, including a loft occupied by my son. Wifi, fireplace, TV, videos, well-stocked kitchen, and spectacular views make living easy. Its a 2 minute walk to the tram up to the ski area, and a 1 minute walk from the end of skiing at day's end.

Zinal itself is beautiful with several nice restaurants, lots of old world charm, plenty of families, not busy at all. If you like the glitz of Saint Moritz, I would not come here, but then that just makes it a more pleasant place for the rest of us.

Skiing is spectacular with plenty of off piste options. The best is the run from Zinal to Grimentz. The designated run is pretty fun, but dropping over to the direct line to Grimenz is even better. Also fun is the direct woods shot down to Zinal after skiing is done. Definitely go to Chandolin/Saint Luc for a day.

Only one warning: the tram up to the ski area gets crowded, so best to wake up...
