Skiing in Anzère
Anzère is a unique eco-conscious resort powered solely by offcuts and sawdust from local trees. Its sustainable energy usage preserves both the natural environment and atmosphere of the area, so you can enjoy a relaxing holiday as the mountain’s clean air refreshes your body and cleanses your mind. Experience skiing in Switzerland like never before with stunning panoramic views of the surrounding mountain range. A fellow nature-lover raved about the resort’s cosy and peaceful ambiance, asserting that its views were simply breath-taking. This winter you can feast your eyes on fantastic sunset views down the Rhone Valley every evening.
A Green Resort
Consisting of just five small chalets in the 1960s, Anzère has undergone considerable development. This car-free village located at an altitude of 1500m now consists of holiday apartments, chalets and hotels, all of which underwent a clean energy drive in 2012. It is now the world’s greenest resort. Its 11 lifts take you to a maximum height of 2500m, giving you direct access to the pistes. You can then spend an afternoon gliding down Anzère’s 40km of sparkling snow-covered slopes. With runs of up to 5km, there are pistes for all levels, the majority of which are ideal for Intermediates.
Eco-friendly Spa and Pool Facilities
After a day spent skiing in Switzerland, relax in the resort’s peaceful and quiet Wellness Area. Nothing beats sitting in a hot spa overlooking the Alps. Best of all though, it is entirely serviced by Europe’s largest wood-pellet burner that uses offcuts and sawdust from Valaisan trees instead of polluting fossil fuels. In fact, the resort’s 600 apartments, two hotels, pool and spa are all eco-friendly. Since the Centrale’s installation in 2012, Anzère has saved 1.5 million litres of oil a year. Make the most of the various treatments offered by the beauticians and therapists, as well as the warm jacuzzi, stylish showers, Hamman and sauna. This frosty season, let your cares drift away in this innovative eco-conscience resort.
