Saas-Fee

Quieter and more low-key than Zermatt is the village of Saas-Fee, a car-free mountain resort with a family-friendly vibe. Saas-Fee also offer a fantastic network of trails that allow you to get up close and personal with the wild marmots who live in subterranean dwellings on the mountain. At the end of the switchback road from Saas-Grund lies a parking garage where you must abandon your car for the length of your stay. But even by the garage you'll be amazed, for the view on arriving at this lofty (5,871 feet) plateau is humbling. (In true Swiss-efficient fashion, you can drop off your bags curbside and call an electric shuttle that will arrive to fetch you in the time it takes to park your car.)
