Blessed with abundant sunshine, the ski resort Hohsaas is also worth a visit. Easy accessible from Saas-Grund you will find 34,5 kilometer (21,4 miles) of slopes and off you go into the pure skiing pleasure.

Gondola Kreuzboden brings you right to the eponymous ski resort from where the  gondola Hohsaas takes only 8 minutes to bring you up to an altitude of 3200 meter (10498 feet). At the summit you´ll find the glacier and Hohkraut slopes that invite for hours of carving fun. While having a blast on your skis you can admire the view of the Saaser mountain and glacier world.

Located at the top station Kreuzboden, you´ll find the kids park Snowland. Here, the Sioux Indians take over and the Sunkid magic carpet gives little ones access to the park. The kids get the chance to explore tepees or go crazy on the playground. Kreuzboden is also the starting point for the trail descending into the town of Saas-Grund.
