The canton of Valais lies in the south of Switzerland amidst the majestic mountains of the Alps. A Mediterranean climate with many sunny days and the certainty of snow due to the high alpine location create ideal conditions for ski tours in Valais. 45 four-thousand-metre peaks and deeply snow-covered landscapes offer almost unlimited possibilities for exciting ascents and daring descents in powder snow.
