ercorin is the smallest resort of the Val D'Anniviers region above Sierre, but should not be neglected. It has some good pistes and ungroomed areas as well as three sledging runs, three winter hiking trails, six snowshoe routes and 12km of cross-country skiing tracks. You can get here from Sierre by post bus, or by cable car from Chalais in the Rhône valley.
