Saas-Almagell Dorf

Tour description

This gentle trail leads through the forest to Furggstalden and offers unique views over the far end of the Saas Valley and Saas-Almagell.

From the village square, the trail follows the road towards Mattmark in a southerly direction. After about 800 metres, the trail turns right and up the mountain to the sledging slope. After the first sharp bend, the route continues through the snowy forest, past Heidbodmen valley station on the right, and briefly across the ski slope. After the second sharp bend, the trail heads towards the hamlet of Furggstalden, where the chairlift mountain station is located. Once there, you can head to one of two restaurants – Furggstalden or Alpina – for a break and a bite to eat.

You can then make your way back down the mountain by chairlift.


Please note that this trail is also used as a sledging slope and crosses the ski slope.
Pay attention to the operating times of the Furggstalden chairlift.
