Nendaz Ski Resort in Switzerland

Guest Post by : Vivian B Capiña

Winter season has always meant skiing, snowboarding, running ski lifts, and easy ski passes. One of the world's ski resorts that winter enthusiasts love to visit again and again is Nendaz 4 Vallées (Four Valleys) located in Sion, the capital of Valais, Switzerland with a total vertical drop of 6,328 feet, a base elevation of 4,597 feet, and a summit elevation of 10,925 feet.

It has a tiny village with conventional timber houses, barns and grain stores, and with its continuous expansion and development, chalets were built, a number of coffee shops and restaurants came forth, supermarkets, and every bit of services a petite village can offer. In addition to these services, an absolutely free bus ride is available everyday, taking skiers to and from the Telecabine where cablecars go up and down the ski resort uninterrupted.
They also offer various programs for children aside from ski courses for little skiers. They provide child-minding services and toddler facilities in oder that adults can have all the time they need to enjoy the slopes without having to worry about their children who aren't geared up enough to do combat with snow and slopes.
It felt so amazing to be in a place I only used to see in postcards and movies! And what's more overwhelming than finding myself skiing?! Never thought I would one day walk like a clone trooper in Star Wars in stiff cylindrical ski boots. Up the slopes a resto bar is open for refreshments while live music adds to the relaxing and very friendly ambience.
Various lifts are accessible like chairlifts, button lifts and magic carpets. Somewhere in the midst of a vast domain of ice another but smaller refresher café sits, chairs and tables are as well settled outside, and a fountain of jazz music is sheltered close by.
The whole huge area between the Magic Carpet and the Button Lift is actually a lake in the summer! As a first time skier, I sort of felt apprehensive when I was crossing it but in my resolute desire to attempt a bit steeper slope I put fear behind me and carried on.

It was indeed a one in a million experience for me. And that day will always remind me that in this world itself are a whole lot of dazzling new worlds for one who is determined to explore.
