In Valais dialect, ‘Tzoumer’ means ‘to take a break’. And for those who are wondering, you will often still hear the older population calling La Tzoumaz by its former name, Les Mayens de Riddes. From the peak of Savoleyres at an altitude of 2,200m above sea level, the La Tzoumaz ski area offers a wide choice of fun, classic mountain activities for the whole family. With optimal snow cover, maximum sunshine and a magical panorama sweeping across the Grand Combin and Mont Blanc, the Muverans and the Bernese Alps, its two north- and south-facing slopes are the perfect playgrounds for winter sport lovers. La Tzoumaz resort is directly connected to the 410 kilometres of pistes in the 4 Vallées, promising an unforgettable skiing experience for all levels. The most adventurous will enjoy testing the freeride in the Vallon d’Abri, savouring the thrill of speed on the La Tzoumaz toboggan run, testing their balance on the Audi Quattro Funslope, and tasting what it feels like to be a champion on the Savoleyres competition stadiums. Those wanting to skip the slopes can enjoy a walk in the forest, whether on foot or with snowshoes, or try paragliding over the area and creating unforgettable memories during your stay in La Tzoumaz.
