Saas-Fee ist eine politische Gemeinde im Bezirk Visp des Kantons Wallis in der Schweiz.
Saas-Fee zählt zirka 1'600 Einwohner und liegt auf 1800 m ü. M. auf einem Hochplateau des Saastals westlich des Talgrundes. Dort befinden sich die Nachbardörfer Saas-Almagell, Saas-Grund und Saas-Balen.
Saas-Fee is the main village in the Saastal or the Saas Valley and is a municipality in the district of Visp in the canton of Valais in Switzerland. The villages in its neighborhood are Saas-Almagell, Saas-Grund and Saas-Balen.
Its location close to the glaciers of the Dom and the Allalinhorn provides winter sport opportunities throughout the year, and neighbouring peaks such as the Weissmies, the Nadelhorn and the Lenzspitze are popular climbs in the summer season. The community is considered to be a very attractive winter sport destination in the Swiss Alps. Typical activities include skiing, carving, snowshoe trekking, canyon climbing and ice climbing.
Saas-Fee offers 26 lifts, including 4 trams, 3 gondolas, 2 chairs, and 17 surface lifts. The loipe has a vertical drop of 1,800 m (5,906 ft), a top elevation of 3,550 m (11,647 ft) and covers 100 km (30 km beginner, 45 km intermediate, 25 km advanced). Other activities include snowboarding (halfpipe and park), paragliding, hang gliding, and tobogganing.
Saas-Fee can be reached by car or bus—buses are running during the day every hour from Brig and Visp. No cars are allowed to enter the city (they have to be parked in special car parks outside); only small electric vehicles operate on the streets (and some petrol-driven garbage trucks). The resort offers many culture, sports and off-slope activities, including classical music, a sports and leisure complex, restaurants, and nightclubs. The resort features the highest underground funicular railway in the world up to the skiing area and the highest revolving restaurant in the world at 3,500 m (11,500 feet). The touristic slogan of Saas-Fee is "Die Perle der Alpen" (The pearl of the Alps). The campus of the European Graduate School, a graduate school, is located in Saas-Fee.
Houses are required to be forty percent wood, which is why the city often seems to blend in nicely with its surroundings.
