Swiss skiing in ChandolinWinter Sports in Chandolin

Ski and snowboard 75 km of piste in Chandolin between 2000-3000m


ust South of Sierre, the villages of Chandolin, St-Luc, Grimentz, Vercorin and Zinal comprise Val D'Anniviers, a partially connected ski area regarded by many as some of the most outstanding slopes in the entire Alps. St Luc and Chandolin share a large connected range of pistes, with equipment that is slowly getting modernised to provide access to some wonderful on and off piste terrain suitable for all levels of skier and snowboarder. With a long, tortuous road journey to access the slopes and overshadowed by more famous resorts in Valais, this valley really is an almost undiscovered gem of wonderful, uncrowded slopes.
