The skiing

For expert terrain, particularly off-piste, Verbier is up there with the very best of them. The slopes also have considerable attractions for intermediates, with over 400km of pistes spread across a multitude of ridges and valleys that encompass many other resorts.

 

The upper slopes of Verbier offer a real high mountain feel and exceptional panoramic views that add to the sense of drama and adventure. Complete beginners have a reasonable choice of village level nursery slopes, but this is definitely a resort best appreciated by the more experienced.

The resort

Verbier is an attractive chalet-style village with an impressive setting and sweeping views over the Rhône valley. An animated town centre and vibrant après scene draw in an ever more sophisticated international crowd.

 

Although essentially a resort for serious skiers, there are plenty of off-slope activities include swimming, dog sledding, tobogganing and plenty of winter walking.
