    Verbier Ski Overview

    Verbier is widely regarded as having the best backcountry in the Alps, with the iconic final of the FWT finishing on the Bec des Rosses in early April. The terrain appeals to all levels of skier whether you are fresh out the blocks or experienced you will enjoy the challenge of the ski area. With skiing as high as 3,300m (Mont Fort) and only 2 hours from Geneva, Verbier is a great resort for the whole season be it for a long weekend or a longer break.

    For the more experienced skiers, there is an endless choice of impressive couloirs, chutes and gullies; it is evident why this spectacular resort has gained its name as home to some of the toughest and most sought-after alpine descents. Do not be put off by this prestigious reputation though, there are dozens of runs on offer for beginners and intermediates alike, as well as après-ski (and snow-less) activities to rival its best competition in the Alps. 

    Verbier classifies its pistes as 43% easy, 29% intermediate and 28% advanced, but the resort is best suited to confident, adventurous skiers and boarders. The resort’s ice-cream-scoop of a mountain bowl is perfectly oriented to the south, so virtually the whole ski area enjoys sunshine all day, as well as views towards the glaciated peaks along the borders with France and Italy. 

    The main beginners’ slope, Les Esserts, has a magic carpet and short button lift a great place to hone your skills before heading towards Le Rouge button and being able to access the main ski area where the majority of people spend most of their time on the main network of pistes directly above Verbier, served by the Médran gondola. This spaghetti of reds is a glorious intermediate playground, but even cautious beginners should ride up to access a couple of scenic blues higher up. And everyone – non-skiers included – should ride the sequence of gondolas and cable cars accessing Mont Fort (3,330m) for the views.

    The gentle, sunny bowl of La Chaux, before you reach the top, is popular with families. The terrain park here has three routes (blue, red, black) with jumps and rails of varying difficulty, plus a giant airbag (experts only, injuries are common) and a thrilling ski cross/boarder cross run. This is a resort built for every one of all abilities; we cannot recommend the quality on offer here highly enough!

    Paragliding Icon


    Probably my most exciting activity and suitable for all ages. Take off from 2000m and enjoy birds eye views of the whole town, even swing by the chalet you are staying in to wave to the gang on the terrace. You are able to tailor your flights from gentle to a bit more adrenalin filled!

    Tobogganning Icon


    Verbier is home to the longest sledge run in French-speaking Switzerland, with a vertical descent of 848 metres. The run takes you from the top of Savolyeres all the way down to La Tzoumaz and you can hire sledges from the top of the Savolyeres cable car or any of the sports shops in resort. Note that this is not for the faint hearted and that the track can get pretty icy so would recommend a 12yo minimum age.

    Husky rides Icon

    Wine Tasting Icon

    Wine Tasting

    Do you know anything about Swiss wine? We didn’t really before we moved here. The majority of the wine from the Swiss vineyards ends up on Swiss dinner tables. So whilst you may not find it in your local shop the wine is fantastic and well worth a try!

    There are 30 mountain restaurants throughout the domain. The number of functional high-volume places on the mountain perhaps reflects the serious attitude taken by many of the skiers to the area - and of course there's no shortage of good eating at the end of the day back in town.

    Cabane Mont Fort

    Swiss, European, Vegetarian Friendly, Alpine

    If you’re looking for something on the move, check out the Cabane Mont Fort, on the Gentianes to La Chaux ski run. This is actually a refuge with showers and 2-bed and dormitory rooms - perfect for first tracks. The cosy interior gets crowded in bad weather; otherwise the sun terrace with its great views is the place to be. Rememer to bring money (no cards) so you can warm yourself with a superb cheese fondue.

    Chez Dany

    Swiss, European, International

    Below Ruinettes in the trees towards Verbier, Chez Dany is a charming chalet in the hamlet of Clambin, with a cosy interior and a balcony with views, it serves an imaginative take on local cuisine, including succulent grills and pumpkin soup in a bread bowl. It’s open in the evenings, with a snow taxi transfer too and then sledge down! Note the ski to the restaurant can get icy - so worth checking conditions first.

    Bois Sauvage

    Local & Seasonal Produce

    Restaurant Le Bois Sauvage is situated at the other end of the 4 vallees, just 300m from the Hérémence lift station. The restaurant sits in the centre of the village of Les Masses and offers breathtaking panoramic views stretching across the whole of the Val D'Herens valley, with the Matterhorn in the distance. The newly renovated restaurant and bar offers a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere where guests are free to enjoy a drink in the bar or dine in the cosy restaurant. This is a great day out; enjoying some great food and service from Darren and Ashley whilst I show you the entire ski area.

    La Marmotte

    Savoleyres has two self service restaurants, one with a large sun-terrace, at the top of the gondola. More rustic is La Marmotte at around 1930m near the T-bar. Offers great views across the Valley and is also an easy ski home, provided the track to Carrefour is open.

    Le Carrefour

    Swiss, European, Gourmet, Alpine

    One of our favourite mountain restaurants, the food is typically Swiss. Choose from a selection of salads, meats cooked on the hot stone, or their range of rosti's. Our favourite is the Rosti Creblet accompanied with a glass of the Cayas, a great Swiss red wine. A great spot, there are a number of ways to ski here for all abilities and also just a 4 minute drive from town for those not on ski's. Once finished why not carry on that sunny day in the sunshine at Le Rouge!

    Located in La Chaux, a nervous intermediates skiing paradise. The restaurant can be reached by lift all the way from town, or for the skiers in the party right from the top of Mont Fort.

    Situated just above the centre of town and just a short walk from the Medran lift station. Open for both lunch and dinner, this is popular spot for both locals and visitors. The food is simple Swiss, with a range of pizza's, salads and pasta. We recommend the Steak Tartare with a bit of spice and the Goat's cheese salad. Also a nice sport for an apres beer whilst watching the town wander by!

    Le Shed

    Swiss Burgers (Swedish inspired), Vegetarian, Cocktails

    Open its doors in 2016 and has been a popular place to eat ever since, simple menu's and great Swiss produce compliment each other beautifully. Open's in the evening at 18.30 and operates on a first come first seated basis, tip come early if you dont like the idea of waiting at the bar sampling the cocktails on offer. The sweet potato fries are pretty dreamy!
