Winter Activities

Skiing / Snowboarding

Les 4 Vallées is the largest ski area in Switzerland. It boasts 410 kilometres of prepared slopes in addition to breathtaking free riding runs for experienced skiers. The slopes on the La Tzoumaz side are of an easy to intermediary level and are ideal for families. The glitzy village of Verbier with its sunny slopes is right on the other side of the mountain, from where you can take the cablecar all the way up to Mont Fort (3330m).

More information on the ski domain, ticket prices etc. can be found on the websites of La Tzoumaz and Les 4 Vallées.


With a length of approx. 10 km, the sledge run from Savoleyeres to La Tzoumaz is the longest (and, in the opinion of many, the best) in the western part of Switzerland. A vertical drop of 834 metres, hairpin turns and stunning views of the Rhone valley make it a fun and thrilling experience!

Sledges can be rented in the sports shops in La Tzoumaz or at the top of the Savoleyres cable car. 

More information can be found on the website of La Tzoumaz.

Ice Skating

Try your ice skating skills on the central square of the La Tzoumaz village. Access to the rink is free, skates can be rented at Monnet Sports right on the opposite side of the street. The ice rink is usually open from 10am to 8pm.

Swimming Pool and Sauna

A sauna session followed by a dip in the water (or the other way around of course) is a great way to relax after a long day in the snow. The swimming pool is not very large, but clean and neat and good fun for children and adults alike.

Both the pool and the sauna are located at the bottom of the La Tzoumaz-Savoleyres gondola.

Thermal Baths / Spa

The thermal baths of Saillon and Ovronnaz are only a 20-30 minutes’ drive away from our chalet. Both have heated open air pools and spa facilities, which makes them a good choice to spend a snowy day or to simply refuel your batteries.

More information can be found on the websites of Bains de Saillon and Bains d’Ovronnaz.

Summer Activities


Once the snow has melted, La Tzoumaz becomes a paradise for hikers. Whether you prefer an easy walk along the bisses (old water channels built by the farmers to irrigate the pastures) around the village or a challenging alpine hike to the picturesque Lac des Vaux, La Tzoumaz has it all. With your guest card, you can also take the gondola to Savoleyres (and on to Mont Fort if you wish) for free.

More hiking tips can be found on the website of La Tzoumaz.

Mountain biking

With over 200 km of enduro trails, 500 km of marked forest trails and a bike park (in Verbier), the surroundings of La Tzoumaz offer a wide range of activities for biking enthusiasts. If riding up the mountain is not your thing, simply let the gondola take you and your bike up to Savoleyres.

Bicycles (including e-mountain bikes) can be rented at Perraudin Sports on the central square.

Scooters can be rented at the La Tzoumaz-Savoleyres gondola.

Lac Souterrain (Underground Lake)


Lac Souterrain is the largest natural underground lake in Europe. Located near Sion, it is only a 30 minutes’ drive away from La Tzoumaz. It is possible to explore the crystal clear lake by boat.

Definitely worth a visit if you have a sense for unusual locations and natural phenomena!

Discover the local Wineries

There is one main reason why Swiss wines are not widely known outside of the country: We like to keep the best things to ourselves. The Valais is home to amazing wines, many of which are made from traditional grape varieties. All villages along the road between Martigny and Sion (and further up the valley) have local wineries, many of which allow you to taste - and of course buy - their wines (e.g., Les Fils Maye in Riddes). Try the fruity Heida/Païen (white), the tangy Fendant (white) or the full-bodied Humagne Rouge (red), just to name a few. La Tzoumaz also has its own small wine producer, who makes very decent wines.
