Situated at the southern end of the Val d'Anniviers and its 220 km of slopes, in a fabulous site in the heart of the Imperial Crown, Zinal is one of the most picturesque villages, breathing the authentic charm of the Anniviers villages. It benefits from the spectacular Grimentz-Zinal ski area (120 km of slopes culminating at 2900 metres). A few minutes by car are enough to reach one of the other resorts in the valley: Grimentz, Saint-Luc, Chandolin and Vercorin. Sierre is 30 minutes away and Sion 40 minutes.
In summer, the valley offers countless activities such as hiking (320 km of trails!), 120 km of mountain bike trails, the Via Ferrata, mountaineering (many famous itineraries), paragliding, communal swimming pools, wellness... while admiring the snow-covered peaks. The many excellent restaurants in the valley will delight the most demanding palates.
The group accommodation is isolated from traffic, on the edge of the forest, less than 200 metres from the centre of Zinal and the start of the new Zinal-Sorebois-Espace Weisshorn cable car. Due to the altitude of the Sorebois mountain pasture (2100 to 2900 metres) and its good snow conditions, the ski area is guaranteed to be open for 5 months.
