The Skiing

Perched on a sunny plateau in the heart of the mountains, Verbier is the gateway to the 4 Vallées ski area with nearly 100 lifts and more than 400 km of ski runs. There are 3 main ski areas forming the heart of the Verbier vallée: Les Ruinettes, Savoleyres and Bruson, peaking at a height of 3330m. Verbier has the advantage of being south facing and therefore enjoying more sunny days than the average resort, yet the majority of the slopes face north. This means that you can enjoy perfect snow conditions whilst looking forward to a lazy lunch on a sunny mountain terrace.
Expert skiers will be drawn to the many off-piste temptations, the narrow exciting couloirs and the various faces of Mont Fort. Beginners start their introduction on the nursery slopes in the village which are linked to the runs from Savoleyres, and will quickly progress to the easy slopes of Les Ruinettes. For some off-piste tree skiing, the Bruson area offers amazing opportunities, often with hardly any tracks.
From Verbier you can connect with the resorts of La Tzoumaz, Nendaz, Veysonnaz, Thyon 200 and right the way to the far edge of the 4 Vallées to the resort of Les Masses. It’s an incredible day to ski all 4 vallées. Each resort is slightly different and the pistes vary from challenging itinerary runs through to wide cruising reds. There’s a route for all abilities so it means that groups of varying styles and levels can all enjoy the mountains.
