We have been coming to Nendaz for 15 years and in that time the resort has grown up a lot. We have lots of new lifts. Lots of new apartments and some very modern chalets and so a big 4* hotel. The restaurants are still very good and the resort is still friendly and very family orientated with a big majority opting for self-catering.

The slopes are well managed and sometimes not groomed so you can do a bit of powder on a regular run. Nowadays we find Nendaz is good for a day or two, just to get the ski legs back! We prefer Siviez; now doable by ski from Nendaz. Verbier is a one day treat mid week (and never on a Friday! Too many last hurrah Henrys!).

Top tip: buy a Printse ticket for your stay, then upgrade to a Verbier day ticket to do Verbier. You can ski, Nendaz, Siviez Thyon and Veysonnaz on a Printse ticket. Only worth the full 4 Vallees ticket if you are going to do Verbier every day.
