The Bountiful Benefits of Saas Fee’s High Altitude
Not only do the high mountains of Saas Fee provide an alpine sanctuary for wellness, nature and outdoor activities, but they also provide the ideal environment for athletes and enthusiasts alike to train at high altitudes promoting improvements in performance. It is widely accepted that training at altitude can be beneficial to athlete’s performance: At high altitude the air is much thinner and so bodies have to work harder to run, jump or ski. When returning to sea level after a stint at elevation our bodies are significantly stronger and more powerful due to an increased mass of red blood cells produced after the body had to deal with the lack of oxygen. With indoor training facilities and the mountains on your doorstep, Saas Fee is the perfect location for athlete training, body conditioning or simply a boost to your health immersed in the Alps, surrounded by 4,000m peaks.
