My wife and I are planning an upcoming wedding anniversary in the Alps, and although we originally planned to go skiing in winter there we decided the beauty and activities of summer outweighed that of the winter. We, of course, bought Rick's "Switzerland 2007" and began our planning.
As it turns out, Saas Fee not only has numerous summer activities to enjoy (Alpine Gorge, Adventure Forest, Hiking, Horseback riding, Canyoning, etc.), but they also have summer skiing on the glacier.
We are now extremely excited about the opportunity to enjoy the activities of both a winter and summer fun filled week, but I was wondering if anyone else had been to Saas Fee during the last week of June or first week in July.
1) Is the summer skiing really any good? (we are only average skiers, so professional slopes are not necessary)
2) Are the summers in Saas Fee really as nice as I've read, or should we consider someplace nicer (suggestions welcome)?
We thank anyone for their assistance!
