From Visp you can first warm up a little along the Vispa. First you follow the road that leads to the well-known ski resorts of Zermatt and Saas-Fee, before you turn left into the Saas Valley after Stalden. The incline continues steadily up to Saas-Balen. Then you can let your legs run free as far as Saas-Grund and on to Saas-Almagell before tackling the last stage of the ascent: the steep section to the foot of the dam. Unlike the other systems in Valais, the Mattmark dam has not consisted of a wall since its completion in 1969, but of an imposing natural dam made of stones, on the flank of which a road leads up to the crest of the dam. Good view guaranteed![Source: valais.ch/de/touren/velo/routen/mattmark-staudamm-trophy]

Something for your position album, really now! But be careful: Currently flooding, as everyone knows. Therefore: Schönausteg closed. Ulmizberg blocked. The Cols ergo 'just' inachevés, just unfinished ... 😞😞😞 In addition, the clouds hide our triumvirate. Therefore: A refaire in autumn with a clear view. Why, surely!
