Extensive, challenging skiing with plenty of serious off-piste and big bump runs – plus lively, if expensive, night-life.
Verbier is a grown-up, world class ski resort, with 410km of skiing for all levels and particularly excellent, accessible off-piste. If you haven’t skied there yet, do so as soon as possible. There are even world-beating mogul runs, should you love bump skiing, and lots of great events such as the Nissan Xtreme Verbier in March and the XSpeedSki in April.
The town is a vibrant, bustling, big resort with loads of shops selling everything from the inevitable ski gear to gorgeous home furnishings. If you want a cowskin rug or some designer lighting or the latest Moncler ski jacket, Verbier is the place. Non-skiers can also go paragliding, husky riding, snow shoeing, even ice driving, plus day trips can be arranged to the local hot thermal spa in Lavey Les Bains near Sion.
