Visitor Reviews of Zinal

Robert from Germany writes:

This resort is well for families. It is said to be good for free riding but as a previous user stated, it is almost closed. The lifts are 'vintage', not easy to use and take a decade to get you on the top. Next time I go a little further in the valley to Crans Montana as they have more variety and are also more sunny.
