Nestled in the heart of the Swiss Alps, Nendaz is a charming ski resort that offers breathtaking panoramic views and a wide range of winter activities.
Located in the Four Valleys ski area, it provides access to over 400 kilometers of slopes, making it a paradise for skiers and snowboarders of all levels.
With its rich history as a traditional mountain village, Nendaz exudes an authentic Swiss Alpine atmosphere. Its architecture showcases traditional wooden chalets and picturesque streets that are perfect for leisurely strolls. The resort has managed to preserve its heritage while still offering modern amenities and facilities for visitors. It's however spread out quite far from the Gondola so watch out where you choose if you want to walk to access the pistes.
The local area is limited, requiring you to migrate over to Veysonnaz and Thyon or the opposite direction to Verbier.
Absolute beginners and children are catered to with dedicated areas, but there's not much for progression.
The connection to the rest of the Printse sector isn't suitable for beginners, with red and black runs making up the majority of the area. Absolute beginners are covered with a collection of conveyors and drags at the top of the area.
