Swiss International Airlines have announced the introduction of a new route between London Heathrow and Sion Airport. The closest airport to Chalet Altitude 1600 in Haute Nendaz.
The flight route will run each Saturday throughout February 2017. This is great news for British skiers heading to the Four Valleys (Las 4 Vallées) region of Switzerland; the largest skiing destination in Switzerland, home to the resorts of Nendaz, Verbier, Thyon, Veysonnaz, Brusson and La Tzoumaz.
The new route between London Heathrow and Sion Airport will be trialled this season and if popular enough it will integrated as a standard route during ski season. We highly recommend the route for skiers travelling from London and surrounding areas, as Sion Airport is just a 30 minute journey to Nendaz and our Chalet Altitude 1600.
February is an excellent month to visit Nendaz, the ski season is in full swing, the snow conditions perfect and there is a full agenda of activities, including: Heliski, snowshoe hikes, curling lessons, a giant slalom event, an ice disco, tours with sled dogs, avalanche training, wine tasting and much more!
