Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Family swimming and Sauna Switzerland

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi all

I will be visiting Crans Montana (or maybe Verbier ) in early feb with my daughter during half term. This will be our first visit to Switzerland.
We like to have one day to rest in a family swim centre with saunas, Wave machines, slides, jacuzzi etc. Is there anything like this in that area?We will have a car.
Our regular trip is to Solden and the Aquadome is perfect.

Appreciate any pointers.

Tom

@Tom H, we have visited Lavey Les Bains a few times by car from Verbier https://www.bains-lavey.ch/en/ - but the Crans Montana tourist office may be able to suggest anywhere closer!

Leukerbad. Not a huge distance by car from Crans, excellent fun for all but no wave machine.

@oui4ski, absolutely superb...100% perfect.

You'll love it, your kids will love it.

The baths at Saillon are nearer to Crans, they are good too...but not as good.

The journey to Levey will be worth it...trust me!

Just keep an eye on this one, their website is saying:

HELLO,
WE ARE SORRY TO ANNOUNCE THAT ALAÏA BAY WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL AT LEAST FEBRUARY 4TH 2022.
INDEED, DUE TO THE EXTREME TEMPERATURES WE HAD TO FACE THESE LAST FEW DAYS, LARGE BLOCKS OF ICE HAVE FORMED IN THE POOL, THUS PREVENTING ANY SURFING PRACTICE.
AS A RESULT, WE HAVE BEEN FORCED TO BRING FORWARD THE MAINTENANCE WORK ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED FOR 10 JANUARY 2022.

All, thank you very much for the responses, pleased to see there are a lot of options.

@Nadenoodle thanks for that information. My daughter turns 12 on Jan 14 and we head on holiday Feb 12. We plan to book her for vaccine ASAP after birthday.
I’ve opted for Switzerland because it seemed less fuss to get entry for her. I had not thought about activities when in The country.
I’m searching for clear information on this 2G plus rule.

@Tom H, just google BAG 2G+
You will need it - shes under 16 so wont. You will need a vax or recover no more than 120 days to access indoor pools.

Thank you Nadenoodlee for the above. I am fully covered: 3 vaccines. I will keep an eye on the page as my holiday gets nearer.

@Tom H, great. I dont think many people know about the vax+120day rule here. I found out when I went swimming last week.

 You know it makes sense.

I hadn’t noticed that one, but if your vaccination is older can’t you augment it with a test?

@ster, if you are vaccinated - yes you can add a test if over 120 days. But if youre not Vaccinated then you cant do the test to get a 2G+ pass.

@Nadenoodlee, thats not too bad then, but where you add the test as your vaccination is over 120, I am struggling to see what sort of test is valid (Lateral flow or PCR) , how it has to be done (self or non-self certified) or how old the test can to be (24/48/72 hours)?

Hi just looking at booking my lift pass which will allow me to have my day off in the Pool (crans Montana), I’m hoping to find a 5 day pass that allows me to choose which 5 days I take of the 6 I’ll be there. There is no obvious choice (at least using terms I’m familiar with, i.e, Solden sell a 5 in 6 day card.) Any help appreciated.

Saillon was much better than Lavey (known locally as the teenage sex baths Shocked ) in our humble opinion, but unfortunately there was a fire there and it’s closed until further notice. Leukerbad has a really nice thermal pools near to Crans. https://www.leukerbad.ch/fr

Alaia is a surf wave, not thermal baths.
