In 1851, Domherr Peter Joseph Ruppen wrote about Die Chronik des Thales Saas, the Chronicle of the Saas Valley. It is still the work over the Saas Valley. Persons like Peter Joseph Zurbriggen and Alois Zurbriggen kept the chronicle scientifically.
The region hosts an extensive winter sports region, comprising the separate ski areas of Saas-Fee, Saas-Grund and Saas-Almagell. As well as individual ski passes a combined pass is available; each of these areas is connected to the other parts of the region by postal bus, rather than dedicated skilifts.
