Highest Downhill Glacier Races - Saas Fee

This year will bring us the 32nd edition of the glacier downhill races here in Saas Fee, on the 4th and 5th April. Participants from all over Europe arrive in Saas Fee to compete in various disciplines over the two days. 

The event itself is regarded as the worlds highest downhill glacier races. The race starts at Mittelallalin which lies at 3500 meters and finishes in Saas Fee at 1800 meters, with some of the participants completing the course in around 2 minutes 40 seconds!

With the Dom (4545m) mountain as the backdrop it truly makes this race very unique

With Saas Fee lying at 1800m and able to ski at 3500m on the glacier it is an ideal resort for that late season 'snow sure' holiday, so if you're looking to get in one more ski trip before the summer, then spring skiing in Saas Fee is perfect. Here at OTP Swiss Holidays we can cater for any requirements, everything from transfers, hotels/apartments, ski passes, rental and even catering.
