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


Richard from United Kingdom writes:

Verbier is fantastic if the snow is good, with it's unpisted tough runs. It is very boring though if all there is available is blue and pretend red short pistes. It's a pretty place with a fun international atmosphere. The only problems I have had there have been the German/Swiss pushing people around in lift queues. I raised an objection a couple of times and 45 year old men, with their families, tried to fight me. Madness. That and the French/Swiss boring on about multi-linguality, being harangued in a bar by a (very attractive) girl for not speaking every European language..bore off. Everyone else in the Alps is lovely. It's the swiss that have the most 'attitude'.
The lift queues, at the bottom of the mountain, are like something from the 1980's. I asked a Swiss guy, in a bar, about it once and he said :"we're full every year: why should we bother updating?" Standard Swiss arrogance.
Personally, I now go to Chamonix, Val d'Isere and St Anton. Fantastic resorts, with unbelievable lift systems, snow and mountains.with no Swiss.
