The main attractions are definitely the ski slopes and spa. To reach the snow-capped peaks skiers can use the two chairlifts in the city or the six ski lifts leading to a huge complex which comes to about 2500 meters in height and from which you can enjoy a fantastic view over the Rhone Valley. At the top there are both simple routes, children and beginners which tracks the most complicated and advanced skiers for Nordic ski enthusiasts and there is a long runway of twenty five km. This city then offers many possibilities for those who love skiing, snowboarding, sledding and hiking. For the latter there are eleven kilometers of the route followed with snowshoes. After a ski trip or a simple stroll you can relax in one of the many wooden huts where they serve hot drinks, pastries and dishes typical of the place.

Then you can go to the town’s spa center. This may be called the Eden of the welfare, health and beauty. The complex is divided into several zones, one is dedicated to medical therapies, one to thermal pools and one to beauty and cosmetic treatments. The thermal waters of Nendaz were studied by Dr. Waldburger who discovered their healing properties and saw that it was a valuable aid in the treatment of disorders of the locomotor system and the cardiovascular system given the amount of minerals, such as calcium, fluoride, magnesium and sulfate contained within them. The water temperature varies between 32° C and 45° C. It is used both in pools and in open outdoor swimming pools depending on the season. The spa has a very extensive program that is suited to families with children who want to spend a few relaxing days and fun in the Alps.
