Verbier is one of the largest holiday resort and ski areas in the Swiss Alps, and is recognized as one of the premiere off-piste locations in the world. Many top skiers have settled in the Verbier area in order to take advantage of the steep slopes, varied conditions and resort culture. They run the Verbier Extreme competition here where pro skiers tackle their way down, what looks to be a cliff face, points being given on speed and choice of line.

The Village

The village is predominantly made up of chalets and claim to offer over 25,000 opportu­nities for overnight stays. The village is set up around a few small roundabouts and branches out from them. All the main shops, bars and restaurants are based around this area. As defined by the skiing, it is a fairly young resort and all the shops stock the latest freeride gear and brightest clothing. The resort isn’t short of money either and a few well know celebrities own places here and holiday in the resort.

Après Ski

The après-ski nightlife is pretty happening in Verbier. In early evening the pubs and bars are jammed with skiers discussing the crazy lines they have skied. Many of the bars do a happy hour, which is normally between the times of 4–6pm. So if you know the right bars you can double the rewards. If the crazy happy hour scene isn’t for you then there are plenty of boutique style wine bars that are a lot quieter and offer a warmer feeling. Later on into the evening there are a few nightclubs that will keep you going into the early hours.

Freeride Paradise With Excellent Pistes

As soon as the first snow falls, Verbier becomes a winter sports paradise. Based in the 4 Vallées’ area, is the name of the immense ski resort with a good 415km of piste and more than 90 lifts and railways linking the stations of Verbier, Nendaz, Veysonnaz, Thyon and La Tzoumaz. The Medran lift takes you up into the resort area and opens up the top of Mont Fort at a height of 3,330m. From here there is a fantastic view to the Matterhorn, Grand Combin and Mont Blanc.
