Given its close proximity to the town of Sion, getting to the ski resort of Haute-Nendaz couldn't be easier.

The centre of the village has everything you need for a comfortable stay: a wide selection of shops, restaurants, ski rental stores and an open-air ice-skating rink.
During your stay, take some time out to stroll through the streets in the old Haute-Nendaz village where you’ll come across old barns, the Tsâblo water mill, Saint-Michel church and the chapel of the same name built in 1499. The après-ski scene in Haute-Nendaz is varied: relax at the resort spa or set out on a cross-country skiing adventure to take in the stunning views of the Rhône valley below.
