Valais (Wallis)  lies in the South-West of Switzerland, stretching for 150 km along the narrow ribbon of the Rhône Valley between Lake Geneva and the Rhône Glacier, with capital Sion.
The highest mountains are: Dufour 4634m -  Dom 4545m - Weisshorn 4506m- Matterhorn 4478m.
Most of the ski resorts  in Valais are situated at or above 1500m, so snow cover guaranteed.
