isp is a town of about 7000 residents in the sunny Rhône valley with a number of small resorts in the immediate vicinity. It is also the stepping off point for the buses to Saastal and Grächen and for the trains to Zermatt, so it also makes a good base for visiting multiple resorts. It's most famous son is Sepp Blatter, the President of FIFA, and a local school is named after him.
