THE STORY OF THE ESS GZ

The origins of the Grimentz-Zinal Swiss Ski School lie in two historical milestones ...

The Grimentz Swiss Ski School was founded in 1959 and the Zinal Swiss Ski School in 1967.

These two schools have accompanied generations of future skiers, and we're always happy to hear your memories when you drop by our offices.

It was during the 2013-2014 season, exactly 10 years ago* now, that these two independent entities merged to give birth to a single, dynamic school, synchronizing their evolution with the bold project of the Grimentz-Zinal ski lifts, which built a cable car to link our two ski areas, crowned this season by the Weisshorn space.

 

*Text written in October 2023

In October 2023, our school celebrated its tenth anniversary, date of the merger of our two entities

OUR PROMISE

Our slogan, the ésmotion for generations, or in other words, emotions put into motion.

The aim of our school is to make you love snow sports, to enable you to discover new sensations and new ways of sliding, in complete safety.

LES REMONTÉES MÉCANIQUES

The special feature of this ski area is that it unites two mountain sides, one by its village and the other by a summit on the Zinal side at 2441m.

Our school looks forward to welcoming you on both sides of the mountain, thanks to the Grimentz / Zinal ski lifts.

OUR LOCAL PARTNERS

At the heart of our approach are values that resonate deeply with the beauty and authenticity of the Val d'Anniviers.

As a Swiss Ski School, we are committed to working with all the local players in our valley.
