ierre-Anniviers is one of the Alps greatest secrets. The resorts are largely unconnected, although there is a new lift between Grimentz and Zinal, and the roads are tortuous - especially the road up to St Luc and Chandolin), but the reward is largely empty pistes and bags of great off-piste. Vissoie lies at the centre of the resorts and probably makes the best base to explore all the area, but Sierre itself is a bit livelier and also gives good access to Crans-Montana and Anzère as well as being, by reputation, the sunniest place in Switzerland.Find accommodation at Bookings.com
Best of the Slopes
The whole valley is full of some classic runs, personal favourites being the run off Bella Tolla down to the bottom of the St-Luc Funicular Railway, and the run off Zinal all the way down into Grimentz.
Where to Eat and Party
