Things to do

Winter Activities...

The skiing in Anzere has something for everyone. The ski area includes varied terrain, at an altitude of between 1,500 and 2,500, suitable for all levels of skier or boarder from beginner to the off-piste expert. Other activities include tobogganing, cross country skiing and paragliding. Two ski schools operate in Anzere and qualified guides are also available for private hire.

The south facing slopes are great for cruising on the piste and lunching on the sunny terraces of the mountain restaurants. The north facing slopes hold powder for weeks after fresh snow falls. The Les Rousses run is fantastic for easily accessible off-piste tree skiing in powder that seems to last all winter. Because of Anzere’s aspect, it is always possible to make fresh tracks on the mountain. This is the beauty of the smaller Swiss resorts; the snow is never skied out

Children

The village takes the comfort of its visitors very seriously, and from 2012 small children and beginners now benefit from walk-on covered ski uplifts serving the beginners areas – no more chilled toddlers! The local ski schools can take children from 2 years old to learn to ski and snowboard. Activities are laid on for children, such as a visit to Father Christmas in the forest, an Easter-egg hunt, a sled race and disco afternoons on the ice rink. Every day there is a professional “animator” who organizes activities for both younger and older children. For very young children there is a day nursery open Monday to Friday accommodating children and babies from 3 months.

Summer Activities...

In summer, Anzere and the Valais region is the perfect place for mountain biking, hiking, tennis and relaxation. Every week-end, there is a festival or an event: the Beef Festival, the Tour des Alpages (running race), Papival Bike Tour (mountain bike race), a local car Rally race, the Swiss National day celebrations, the Wine festival and the IXS Swiss Downhill mountain bike Cup Anzere has its own tennis courts which are simple to book and play. The lift system is available in the summer months so that hikers and bikers can access the high altitude network of downhill bike routes and high altitude walking routes. There are 166kms of marked footpaths for hikers to enjoy. In summer, the mountain farmers sell their cheeses, charcuterie and wines to the passing hikers.

Both Anzere and Crans Montana have outstanding opportunities for downhill mountain biking (VTT) using the ski lifts to access vast downhill terrain. High altitude hiking enthusiasts come from all over Europe to access the multi-day tours available in the region. Anzere is an ideal starting point for the world famous Wildhorn Tour. This is a summer hiking tour which includes overnight stays in a network of basic but comfortable mountain refuges, see www.tourduwildhorn.ch.

The Valais is famed for its incredible vineyards, climbing up steeply terraced slopes. The wine harvest takes place in autumn, but it is possible to enjoy the vineyards all year long as there is a network of paths created along irrigation channels called ‘bisses’. It is possible to walk for miles along the bisses and in summer one can sample the wines produced at the ‘vignerons’ own small artisanal sampling restaurants along the way. The quality of the wine is outstanding and some of the vine varietals are seldom experienced outside the Valais. Try rare and historic vine varietals like Petite Arvine, Fendant, and Cornalin, some of which are said to have been cultivated since Roman times.

Children

In summer, there are a variety of activities organized for children such as fishing, discovering flora and fauna and multi sports. There is a large open playing area on the village square, a multisport pitch and fantastic playground which allows children to enjoy fun and games in a safe, car-free area.
