Looking for a great escape that’s all about sunshine on high sunny plains and a quiet, natural vibe?


Fancy gliding along wide, open boulevards or testing your nerve with a mogul run or snow-riding extreme? Whatever your choice, the beautiful unspoiled slopes of Anzère are certainly within easy reach! Just 1hr 30 from Lausanne and 20 minutes from Sion, this easy-access resort is a family favourite with great options at all levels.

With a varied ski domain of 52km (plus off-piste options) and a great selection of high-altitude cafés and restaurants, you can spend the whole day on the snow without ever re-tracing your path. The high slopes of Anzère are nestled between two valleys and you’re welcome to ski down to Les Rousses, a lovely tree-lined route that brings you up-close with nature.

There’s also a fantastic 4km sledding option close to the pistes – which means non-skiers are never far from the action. And for evenings and rest days the free ice skating rink in the centre of Anzère village makes for a great alternative. 

Looking to improve your technique or help children learn to ski? Anzère’s family friendly ski schools, both ESS and private, know how to teach with fun and patience. And that’s a technique that works for adults too!

Finally, at the end of a long day, check out the Anzère Spa & Wellness. This touch of luxury is family-friendly and affordable - offering a special pool area for children and babies, plus a separate zone for adults. Check out beauty treatments and relaxing massages – the perfect start to your après ski agenda. Plans for dinner? In Anzère try local Valais specialities at traditional chalet-style restaurants or dine-out in style at more contemporary locations.
