People skied already above the village even before the tourism trade began and before ski lifts! Ski holiday village Veysonnaz belongs to the Les 4 Vallées ski region in the Swiss canton Valais. The small authentic ski resort lies on a ridge overlooking the Rhône Valley.
Après-ski ski in Veysonnaz is authentic and lively. By far the most famous bar in Veysonnaz is called "Vague à l'Ame". Even though the nightlife is not confusingly big, but there is certainly plenty to do. The paradox is that Veysonnaz, the smallest district in the Valais, is located at the foot of the biggest ski domain in Switzerland and the third biggest in Europe!
SKIING IN VEYSONNAZ
Veysonnaz-Printze has 10 pistes and is best suited to intermediate skiers and snowboarders. 10 lifts (2 cable cars, 8 téléskis) offer skiers an incredible 2,030 metres of vertical descent. The bulk of the ski area is located on the east slope of the mountain and is thus sure of snow. For advanced skiers there is the possibility to go to the Mont-Fort (3,330 metres).
