Commune of Nendaz, with its capital in Basse-Nendaz.
The commune comprises some 15 villages and hamlets. Basse-Nendaz is the administrative and parish capital.
Close to Sion, the commune of Nendaz lies in the middle of the Rhône valley, on the left bank. Its vast territory of 8,593 hectares has several unique features: it follows the contours of the valley of the same name and stretches from the fertile plain to the eternal snows.
Nearly a quarter of the land is forested. It plays a notoriously protective role, guarding against the devastation of erosion and avalanches. The valley is bisected by the Printse, a tumultuous river that is both the source and outlet of a multitude of irrigation channels.
Nendaz is crowned with magnificent peaks, such as the Rosablanche (3336 m), the most beautiful alpine viewpoint in central Valais, and the Mont-Fort (3330 m), now accessible to all thanks to the ski lifts.
The shops are located in the center of the ski station of Nendaz.
