isperterminen, as its name suggests, is in the Visp valley near the town of Visp. The area is renowned for its wine-making, particularly the Heida wine, and has the highest vineyards in Europe. It has a limited downhill area, mostly served by surface lifts. However the views are stunning, looking over some of the highest peaks in Valais, and the view can equally be enjoyed from the pistes as from the 7km toboggan run from Giw down to Visperterminen and the local winter walking tracks and signposted snowshoe trails.
