Saas Fee's status as a glacier, remaining open during the fall, is pivotal for world-class athletes in winter sports. Its year-round snow and ice, ideal snow conditions, variety of terrain, and high altitude make it an exceptional training ground. Athletes can practice on consistent, competition-like surfaces, acclimatize to high altitudes, and enjoy an extended training season, crucial for strength-building.  This unique opportunity to train in optimal conditions during the off-season solidifies Saas Fee's reputation as an indispensable training hub for athletes aiming for excellence on the global stage.

Many pros reacted positively to James' new stunt:
