Visitor Reviews of Saas Almagell

Arran Smith from United Kingdom writes:

Saas Almagell is a great little find; spent a week there over February half-term. Empty, well groomed slopes, no queues, straight on to the lifts, 2400m highest lift, so a decent run to bottom at 1670m.
A mixture of mainly reds, but also blue & blacks is enough to keep you entertained, along with day trips to Saas Fe & Saas Grund both just 2km away (good bus service).
So all in all, if you're looking for a Swiss resort, with lots of charm & empty slopes, even in the busiest period, you could do a lot worse than Saas Almagell.
