SUR LES PISTE IS RIGHT BY THE SKI SLOPES

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Grimentz - Sur les Pistes

This duplex apartment has three bedrooms that can either be doubles or twins

Sur les Piste is, as its name suggests, in the perfect position situated almost on the piste itself and in one of the best locations in the village. The apartment offers guests a fantastic ski in / ski out experience and it is just 1 minutes walk from the main ski lift, and less than 5 min walk from the village shops, bars and restaurants, making it ideal for beginners, non-skiers and young children alike.

The Village: The best après ski bar is Chez Florioz which is located at the bottom of the slopes in Grimentz; this has good music, serves very nice food and is always packed straight after skiing. There two pubs; Domino and Le County (which has a pool table and table football ) together with one disco - Disco Shaddock open until 3am.

There are a number of excellent restaurants we particularly recommend Meleze which has an excellent selection with a great hot rock or Fondue Chinos (both not oil) with endless meat, salad, chips and sauces together with a great ambience. In addition there is the Restaurant Alpina that serves good oven baked beef with sauces; Arlequin that serves good pizzas, Becs-de-Bosson, Claire Fontaione which is directly in the centre of the old village and serves a wide variety of crepes and finally perhaps one of our favourites Restaurant Moiry with an old world feel with ancient paintings of the famous fighting cows of the valley and an open oven that's really cosy at night.

Grimentz has many accolades and has been described by Where to Ski and Snowboard as 'Europe's best-kept secret' and an 'undiscovered gem'. As Where to Ski and Snowboard says 'get there fast before it has time to catch up with the 21st century! It has also recently been featured in the Ski and Board Magazine and many others.

If you like ancient, quiet, totally unspoilt mountain villages together with a modern lift system then this is the place for you. In addition to the piste skiing the area is famous for its fabulous off piste skiing and its mountain touring. For magnificent views just off one the pistes in Grimentz there is a stunning 360 degree panoramic view of the Imperial Crown - five 4000m peaks - Weisshorn, Zinalrothorn, Obergabelhorn, Dent-Blanche and the Matterhorn. The village itself has tiny cobbled streets and in some places they are so narrow that the roofs of the chalets almost touch each other in the middle.

Ski: The skiing in Grimentz is mainly between 1340m to 3000m although the vast majority of the skiing is above 2100m thus the area is snow secure. The area has varied skiing from open pistes to forest runs and steep blacks to easy blues. There is a great snow park at 2500m in Grimentz and additionally one in Zinal. The lift system is modern with Gondolas, Cable cars, a funicular in St Luc and fast six man chairlifts. In all there are 220km of pistes, with 44 lifts . In addition there are 35Km of cross country skiing trails, 120km of snowshoe trails, 110km of winter hiking trails, 15km of toboggan runs, 4 snow parks and 11 mountain restaurants.

To get to the other resorts in the area from Grimentz there are free buses - a regular bus goes from Grimentz to Zinal and a slightly more irregular service to the other resorts. If you are a competent skier there is a fantastic long black run from Zinal.
