The resort lies between Martigny and Sion high above the left bank of the Rhone at an altitude of about 1,500 m above sea level. M. The former name Mayens-de-Riddes, Mayensäss of Riddes, refers to the original use of the Alpine settlement, namely the summering of cattle. Even today, herds of the Eringer, the typical Valais fighting cow breed, can be seen. Today La Tzoumaz is connected to the 4 Vallées ski area (4 valleys) with the ski resorts of Verbier, Nendaz, Thyon and Veysonnaz. The 8-person cable car, which opened in 2008, takes 7 minutes to reach the Savoleyres ridge (2,354 m above sea level), which is the gateway to Verbier. The advantage of La Tzoumaz as a ski resort is the comparatively good snow conditions thanks to its north orientation and the wide view over the Rhone Valley to the Bernese Alps. Thanks to the terraced hillside location, most units have unobstructed views. An attraction for families is the 10 km long toboggan run, one of the longest in Switzerland, which can be reached by cable car. In summer, there are many hiking and mountain biking trails, as well as the 'Path of the Senses' (Sentier des Sens). In the village there is a public indoor pool with sauna and an outdoor natural ice rink.
