Is Grimentz the best resort you've never skied?
Grimentz/Zinal is located in the Valais canton of Switzerland, a mere 25 kilometers from Verbier as the crow flies. However, in terms of fighting crowds for powder turns it's like you're on another planet. With 19 lifts servicing four resorts spread around the Val d'Annivers - including a new tram linking Grimentz and Zinal -- and predominately north and east facing terrain, the area has loads of fresh powder potential for several days after a snowfall.
