Verbier - Piste Ratings
Verbier is justifiably famous as one of the most outstanding ski areas in Europe and lies high in a sunny, well-sheltered position in the heart of Switzerland's southern-most Alps. As part of the four valleys, the ski area is vast, high and varied with over 400km of runs (including Thyon, Veysonnaz and Nendaz). Verbier retains a wonderfully alpine charm with a widespread array of tempting shops and boutiques in the cosmopolitan village centre, as well as many restaurants and popular bars where lively nightlife abounds.
The Mont Fort Glacier at 3300 metres has guaranteed snow throughout the season and is easily accessible via the largest cable car in Switzerland. For beginners there is a choice of nursery slopes at the back of the village and an excellent ski school. Intermediates will enjoy the tree-lined runs to Tzoumaz and the wide, open slopes of the glacier. While Verbier has plenty for everybody, it has built its reputation as an advanced skiers's paradise.
Verbier is world famous for its apres ski, it is trendy, cosmopolitan and always lively. Other activities include ice-skating, curling, indoor tennis, a heated indoor swimming pool, tobogganing, cinema, sauna/solarium, para and hang-gliding, cross country skiing and a beautifully designed sports centre equipped for most activities.
