For much of the 20th Century, Switzerland's Saastal Valley was inaccessible to most of the world. But in 1951, when a two-lane road to the village of Saas Fee was completed, skiers caught on fast: Here was access to some of the western Alps' -and Europe's-most consistent year-round skiing. Today, the village remains car-free, the resort clings to its rustic charm, and the skiing is Swiss premier: miles of intermediate glades and groomers surrounded by endless guided-only glacier skiing.
