Sion & The Valais

Sion, in the Valais region of Switzerland, is your gateway to some of the very best ski resorts that Europe has to offer. With a short flight time from our European hubs, you’ll be on the slopes in no time.

Switzerland is known for its chic, world-class ski resorts and the Valais is home to 36 different ski areas, offering over 2000km of pristine pistes. The charming resort of Nendaz is just 25 minutes from Sion Airport, whilst the sunny slopes of Crans-Montana are only 30 minutes away. Verbier, a firm favourite amongst royals, is just a 45-minute transfer ride from Sion, whilst the challenging, high-altitude terrain of Zermatt is only 1 hour away.

Valais resorts such as Lötschental and Aletsch Arena are a popular choice for families and beginner skiers looking for gentle, progressive slopes on which to practice those first turns. Those looking for more adrenalin-fuelled fun will appreciate the glacial slopes of Saas-Fee and the endless powder fields only accessible by helicopter. There are also no fewer than 11 Michelin-starred restaurants, proving that the ski resorts of the Valais really do have it all.
