On the first few meters on the mountain, it is all about maintaining the Balance.
male ski lifts and the Transport of Vercorins. You have to train the Lift. Younger, chair lifts, large become skiers have experienced something Similar. Older will remember the times where the only comfort of lifts was to the mountains, not even to climb.
Relaxed, however, the departures are. You glide over rolling hills and broad slopes, and there is little hanging on the icy steep, and enjoy a wonderful view of the Valais mountain world. From the Crêt du Midi you can see the Chalets in the village centre and in good weather the Bernese Alps.

The ski resort of Vercorin has been through challenging times and numerous challenges. This applies to the whole of the Valais, where the financial situation of many ski resorts is tense. Winter tourism may be starving. The strong Swiss franc increases in the cost of the guest beds in the last few years, in comparison to other countries considerably. And not always snow fell enough. The overnight pay back went, it was the money for investment in Hotels, the leisure and winter sports equipment was missing.
The inhabitants of the intimate village life is more important than excessive tourism.
This development is the 600 inhabitants of Vercorin hit hard. Geographically, the location belongs to the picturesque and popular with tourists and Val d'anniviers. But Vercorin remote, has few Hotels and very few Restaurants. From the tourism of the Val d'anniviers benefits.
And according to Size it has achieved here. Up to now, a surfeit of tourism office massive hotel buildings intact would endanger the historic character of the Chaletdorfs. The inhabitants, it is the intimate village life is more important than excessive tourism.
Geographically, the location belongs to the picturesque Val d'anniviers.
All of the resolutions, in Spite of not had to open Vercorin in the last few years, tourist, to disappear from the map of the Valais winter sports resorts. The mountain railway companies Télévercorin invested in 2012, about 10 million Swiss francs in a new gondola lift up to the Crêt du Midi. But a big Problem remained. It's hotel beds were available for those tourists, which take advantage of the new capacity and the investment should cover.
So dare to Télévercorin the next step. The company is owned, directly next to the valley station of a plot of land, ideal for a new Hotel. The Valais real estate investor Mountain Resort Real Estate Fund showed interest in this. Five years after the opening of the gondola last year, was inaugurated in Vercorin, Swiss peak Resort. Similar systems are there in the winter destinations, Zinal, VS, and Brigels GR.
From the slopes to the Spa:
The Swiss peak Resort has 101 apartments, with 416 beds. The plant is large, but not massive. The bright apartments are decorated with high quality materials, especially wood. Bathroom and shower are state of the art. Also in the equipment of the kitchen was not saved.
What is striking: As in any Pennine Housing are in the kitchens of the Swiss peak Resorts Fondue Caquelons. A Welcome Kit with toilet paper, dishwashing detergent, sponge and cleaning cloths expects the comers. Anyone who spends with a family in Resort vacation, soon realizes two things: firstly, the Welcome is used up the Kit quickly, and secondly, nature is accumulated according to the dust in the apartment.
The hand vacuum cleaner is aesthetically pleasing, but not very power is capable of. For the replacement of toilet paper, only the walk to the nearby supermarket. The Resort resembles a Hotel, also has a reception, but is a guest house with apartments to räsonablen prices. Bedding you must bring your own or rent. A certain amount of the hotel structure is still called for. In the basement is a Spa. From Ski and ski lift to tired, you can relax in the hot tub, a Finnish Sauna or Turkish Hammam. Who doesn't like in own apartment to eat, for Breakfast, an aperitif or dinner, the Restaurant and wine bar on the ground floor.
There will be more beds
For the town of Vercorin in need of the Swiss peak Resort was to win. The family residence is situated outside the medieval village core. The village life is preserved. The locals are quite proud of the added value. However, the 416 beds, even if they were constantly occupied, you are not likely to be sufficient for the amortization of the investments made in the mountain railway infrastructure. It needs additional capacity in order to cope with further investments. For years the thought about a direct connection to the ski resorts of Vercorin and Grimentz. The merger would increase the attractiveness of the ski resort of Vercorin.
