The holiday region of Saas-Fee/Saastal can look back on a positive winter season and heralds an adventurous summer and autumn season.
The winter of 2022/23 saw a strong rebound in group business. GoSnow school groups as well as other snow sports camps contributed to this very strong group business result. The Skier-Days were at the previous year’s level, so the Saastal Bergbahnen were able to build on the record winter of 21/22. In addition, the Funpark Morenia was able to reopen and the range of fun activities in the snow was expanded, to the delight of young and old snow sports enthusiasts.
The number of overnight stays in hotels and holiday apartments declined slightly. This is mainly due to the lack of beds, which underlines the importance of the new hotel and resort projects.
The events also look back on an eventful winter season. The Ice Climbing World Cup took place in Saas-Fee for the 23rd time, with more than 120 top athletes from over 20 countries competing in the 32-metre-high “Ice Dome”. The legendary Allalin race took place for the 41st time and with the 12-hour race on Kreuzboden-Hohsaas, donations were collected for the Mentelity Games, which for the third time enables young people with a physical disability to have a shared experience in the snow.
The second edition of Snow’n Sound and the legendary season-end party in Saas-Fee marked the end of a six-month winter season.
