Verbier is Switzerland's number one resort with great skiing and snow-boarding. The terrain is fantastic, the views superb and the snow reliable. Unfortunately, Verbier is popular and the queues can reflect this. However, due to regular investments in the lift system, long lift queues occur only on peak holiday periods and only on the two Tortin lifts. Verbier caters for all abilities but experts will love the off-piste that is straight out of a magazine. Too good to be true? Well, Verbier is expensive and snobby to the extreme. There are ways to cut costs (a nice youth hostel in the valley if you can stand the commute) otherwise expect to pay through the nose for pretty much everything! There are plenty of places to eat and drink if you have the money, it is a party-town as well.

Resorts close to Verbier include: Bruson (3 km), Le Chable (3 km), La Tzoumaz (5 km), Champex-Lac (11 km), Haute Nendaz (11 km),

Visitor Reviews of Verbier


Andre from Switzerland writes:

Snow forecast is great for exactly that. However, the visitor review section is, quite frankly, a complete joke. The 'reviews' are often neither accurate or useful. They simply provide an outlet for prejudice and intolerance. I assume the contributors are also hoping to alienate potential skiers from the resort so that they can have a little more space on the slopes to themselves. Whoever edits the content should be highly embarrassed that they are so out of touch with what is going on.
PS I believe Verbier is a great resort, with the potential to be even better. It just needs Televerbier to stick to their core business rather than think they can also run mountain restaurants!

[note from the editor: we need to rely on the honesty of reviewers as we are unable to stay abreast of all conditions/changes at all our listed resorts! Your review is one such critique which could help edit relevant reviews so only sincere words are displayed.]
