ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
The real pull of Grimentz is the off piste, with access to Zinal via the Sorebois cable-car, you will have the option to explore even more of this extensive back country terrain. This trip consists of six full days skiing off piste with your local mountain guide. Groups will be divided into ski standards, with this trip aimed at Purple and Gold - if you are unsure of your standard please have a look on our Ski Profile Page.
The 3* Hotel Alpina Grimentz is a welcoming and cosy hotel offering tasty food on a half board basis. You will be staying in twin share accommodation. The hotel is based in a great location right at the bottom of the lifts next to the Grimentz-Zinal cable car, barely 30 meters from the piste and perfectly located to begin your ski day in any direction you choose.
Flights are not included in the fee, however a point-to-point Swiss rail ticket is included.
Grimentz is one of 12 picturesque villages in the stunning Val d'Anniviers. The small, friendly village, dotted with sun-blackened raccards (wheat storage barns) and ancient chalets, dates back to the 15th century. Grimentz is slightly larger than its neighbour Zinal but has direct access to a smaller ski area. The terrain can be punishing and for this reason, we always ski with qualified mountain guides in this area, especially if we are going to exploring the backcountry. However, if you’re up for a challenge, the skiing will be rewarding and frankly, epic. The locals here are serious about their skiing which means the bars and nightclubs of other resorts in the area are forgotten, but you will find some great sports shops selling the latest equipment with staff who are as passionate as you are.
If you require ski hire, traditionally members have used Ski Set Grimentz-Zinal Ski Safari. (Changed names from Val) They are located approximately 50m from the hotel and you can pre-book online through the Ski Club website. They offer a discount to Ski Club members.
