The Essential
Zinal, in a premium location (alt 1,670m) is a pleasant little resort, whose tourist facilities are extended by six neighbouring villages. The installations are extensive and provide access to 200km of ski runs. The resort, rich in signposted trails, also caters to cross-country skiers and trekkers. Bounded by famous peaks including the Cervin and the Dent Blanche, it represents a superb base camp for hikers, with hundreds of kilometres of marked paths.
