Training opportunities for teams

Top training conditions on the Saas-Fee glacier 

The natural characteristics of the Saas-Fee glacier, such as its height and the slope render it perfect for the training of teams in the summer. Saas-Fee is able to offer a full package and outstanding training conditions for alpine, freestyle and cross-country skiers.

 The summer ski area is very well suited to professional winter athletes. Numerous national teams and junior squads from the areas of alpine, freestyle and cross-country skiing undertake their summer training in Saas-Fee.

We have the following training pistes on the Saas-Fee glacier at 3,500 metres above sea level.

Ski- & Snowboard Cross

From the end of August (depending on conditions), this summer, a ski and boarder-cross piste, prepared to top standards, will again be available for training.

Instructions for trainers and those responsible for training groups

- Every training group must adhere strictly to the instructions of the piste service. In the case of any violation, the piste service will remove slalom poles.

-The participants in the groups may ski onto all pistes, but must take the other skiers and guests into account. Cases of overly dangerous or uncontrolled skiing on the piste may well lead to the withdrawal of the reservation.

- Defective slalom poles, torn wooden or plastic flags and picnic waste must be collected up by the group after training and brought to the Mittelallalin mountain station. The trainers and those responsible for the training groups are responsible for the cleanliness of the training course.

- Skiing and placing obstacles outside of the defined pistes is strictly prohibited.

  • Protection and barrier markings/ropes must not be removed.
  • Bars may not be affixed to the piste markings.
  • There are no priorities on the ski-lifts, i.e. it is prohibited for both racers and participants in the training groups to instal themselves at the ski-lift embarkation point by the barrier or to walk in front of waiting guests.
  • Jumping off on the ski-lift route is forbidden.

Disregarding the points above may result in our staff withdrawing the reservation and in reserved pistes no longer being made available.

- Every trainer is personally responsible for his/her group. The meeting is mandatory!

- In the case of individual race training on slopes that have not been enclosed, racers must observe the FIS rules like any other user of the piste. If the race training is carried out in groups, the training leader bears the same responsibilities as the organiser. As soon as the general travel direction of the pistes is departed from, warning posts are to be set up. Where necessary, the companies must notify the organisers of this.

- Skiing will be cancelled in the case of storms and the pistes will be cleared. Please leave the ski area immediately.
