Grimentz, Val d'Anniviers

Off piste

Off piste

Word is slowly leaking out that the Val d'Anniviers has simply one of the most extensive, beautiful and untouched off-piste terrains in the Alps. Copious amounts are accessible straight off the back of lifts, taking you into big backcountry areas, where you are more likely to see ibex or chamois than other skiers. For those prepared to put their skis on and walk a bit, the options are seemingly endless and even more rewarding.

There are no ski bums in Grimentz, no seasonal workers piling into the off-piste after every dump of fresh snow, so vast areas remain untracked for days and even weeks.

There are gentle tours into neighbouring valleys, hairy steep couloirs, easily accessiblwe drop-ins and long ski tours on skins with overnight stays in mountain huts.

Grimentz is also one of only two resorts in Switzerland where you can heliski from the village. We can help you arrange a heliski excursions, organising mountain guides and helis to suit your programme.

We work closely with Grimentz-Zinal Backcountry Adventures and can arrange mountain guides to show you the best that region has to offer during your stay..
