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.

The pistes with artificial snow are skiing well. The piste from the bottom of Mayentzet to Verbier is closed, though it's possible to get most of the way down. Off-piste is very limited. (December 24, 2015)
