Are you in search of wide open space, great snow conditions and challenging slopes ?

If you are an advanced skier, that technical difficulties don’t scare you and that you are
in search of that adrenaline rush, come and set off on one of the 6 ski itineraries spread
over the 4 Vallées ski domain. Nendaz is the ideal departure point to make the most of
these out-of-the-ordinary ski runs. These non-prepared but secured itineraries are destined
to be followed by experienced skiers and should satisfy even the most ambitious
winter sports lovers.

« As a professional freerider, I have had the privilege in visiting numerous ski resorts
throughout Europe, across the Atlantic and even in Oceania. The 4 vallées proposes
a gigantic choice of marked ski itineraries, which I would even say, is the only one of
its kind in the world. »
