Resort Profile: Nendaz

By adamrowden, 13 Dec '12 at 11:36

Nendaz is a cool little Swiss ski village that overlooks the Rhone Valley and is one of the smaller resorts linked to Verbier. It is mainly purpose built and is comprised of plenty of apartments and it also very quiet compared to Verbier.

It sits at 1365m and is one of the 23 resorts in Switzerland that has been awarded the "Families Welcome" label by the Swiss Tourism Federation. This award speaks for itself, but Nandez has plenty to offer families and has pistes that are well suited for skiers and snowboarders of all ages.

When Nendaz is combined with Verbier, Thyon, Siviez and Veysonnaz, it is a part of the 4 Valleys ski network which has over 410km of pistes available.

Regarding its slopes, Nendaz has a number of north-facing, vast and wide slopes that are perfect for cruising down. These pistes hold the snow well and can even be nice to ski on at their lowest points - as low as 1400m.

Though the resort has much to offer beginners, if you are a more advanced skier or snowboarder then you will be pleased to hear that there are a number of great off-piste options where you can really test yourself.

But, you should not fear about the lack of testing slopes in Nendaz, as the 4 Valleys Ski area has plenty to offer!
