Not so famous Swiss ski resorts no. 1 – Nax

I often say that it’s difficult to take a bad photograph in Switzerland and that statement was very much put to the test today as the display on the back of my compact camera decided not to work. 😦   So it was very much a case of point and shoot and hope for the best!

Just a 30 minute drive from our chalet, at the northern end of the Val d’Hérens and overlooking the main Rhone valley, is the ski resort of Nax.  It’s a favourite of ours as 3 of the 4 lifts are chairlifts and, although all the slopes are marked as red, the majority are wide with sweeping turns and not too steep.  Also the lower runs go down between evergreen Arolla pines, which makes you feel like you’re in your own little ski world.  Certainly today, there were very few other people around, as you can see from the pictures below.
