With unbeatable skiing and an Infamous nightlife Verbier Ski Resort needs little introduction. It is one of the most infamous and widely reported resorts in the world. Whether you seek powder and thrills, lively bars and stylish restaurants or village charm from your ski holiday, Verbier has something for everyone, bar complete beginners.Located three hours from Zurich,two hours from Geneva and one hour from Sion,Verbier Ski Resort is one of Switzerlands (and Europes) best known and most popular resorts.It can also be easily reached by car from Calais. Home to the rich and famous, as well as being a vast ski area,in a south facing bowl, Verbier is set high on the mountainside, spanning over four valleys and offering great panoramic views

Linking into Verbier is La Tzoumaz resort which has its own 100km of pistes on snow-sure north facing slopes and links directly into the Savoleyres area of Verbier. The 8-man telecabine takes you straight to the top of Savoleyres in 9 minutes, from there you can ski to the Medran lift in the centre of Verbier in just 10 minutes. Verbier's delights and extensive skiing both on and off piste are renowned but the charms of the Savoleyres area are less well known and consequently less people especially at peak times. This is a quieter, family friendly mountain with something for everyone including a 10km toboggan run, 3 new snowshoe routes, natural ice rink and Heli-skiing from Croix de Coeur. The village has good shops including, newsagent, supermarket with butchers and bakery, bars, pizzeria, restaurants, cash machine, night club and an indoor swimming pool with sauna.Decent prices here too!!

Skiing in Verbier is suitable for almost all levels but in particular more advanced skiers.Verbiers off piste skiing when on song is awesome.Verbier is linked by lifts to neighbouring Thyon, Veysonnaz,Les Colons,La Tzoumaz and Nendaz, and together they form the Four Valleys.The ski pass can now cover Chamonix and Courmayeur offering more skiing and variety than the 3 valleys in France.


Accommodation in Verbier is varied and the resort is built in traditional chalet style boasting plenty of sports shops, boutiques, bars, restaurants and cafés. Renowned for its thriving nightlife which goes on though until the early hours, those who visit Verbier looking to enjoy the après ski will not be disappointed!Whether you seek powder and thrills, lively bars and stylish restaurants or village charm from your ski holiday, Verbier has something for everyone.

The ski area spans over 400km, stretching across the Four Valleys area to Nendaz and Thyon. This huge area provides endless cruising blue and red pistes suitable for all skiing abilities, but more for intermediates upwards. The dedicated nursery slopes and excellent ski schools offer something for beginners of all ages and those looking to be challenged by Verbier’s notorious off-piste and black runs do not need to look far.Families and beginners or lower intermediates however would be better staying in the quieter pretty area of La Tzoumaz, which is one of THE best up and coming resorts in its own right in Switzerland and exceptionally good value,but less of a choice for partygoers!

The nightlife in Verbier is as legendary as the skiing and can be as lively or sophisticated as you wish. An abundance of top quality restaurants, bars and shops are all conveniently located within easy walking distance of both of hotels and many up market chalets. Alternatively you can sample the lively après-ski bars in your ski boots and finish the evening feasting on delicious cuisine served in the resort.Whichever type of holiday you are searching for in the Verbier Ski area, you will certainly have made a very good choice.
