Friendly Ski Chalet Specialists


Ski Range 1,365m - 3,330m

For many skiers and snowboarders Verbier is the ultimate winter holiday experience, combining some of the finest slopes in the Alps with as much nightlife as you can cope with. The skiing in Verbier’s spectacular mountains is just about as good and extensive as it gets, so although it's great to have so many choices, you hardly need to venture away from the “local” slopes to explore Verbier’s celebrated 'Four Valley' ski system which incorporates several other neighbouring resorts. Although Verbier didn’t really exist as a destination ski area until the early 1950's it has evolved as an attractive and atmospheric resort with considerable Alpine charm and a profusion of chalet-style buildings mingling with chic shops. By day it lazes in a wide sunny bowl, enjoying stunning views over the Rhône valley way below, whilst by night the resort is busy with a varied and lively nightlife.

We are pleased to offer you a convenient pre-bookable service for ski/board and boot hire, tuition and lift passes. The big advantages are that everything is arranged for you in advance, prices are guaranteed against currency fluctuation, and you can relax and look forward to a smoother first day in resort. Your equipment hire and lesson vouchers will be in your Welcome Pack ready for you immediately on arrival, and your lift passes will be delivered to you either on arrival or by breakfast time on your first morning, so you can hit the slopes without delay.

Ski school

Beginners, adult and child lessons all run from the Médran lift from Monday to Friday, and the ski-school has an excellent reputation, with English spoken widely and well by the instructors. Various options are available for children's classes from kindergarten care to Mini Champion groups.

NIGHTLIFE & APRES SKI

This is a resort that buzzes with life. But its not just for the party crowd - there are activities galore from laid back to energetic and to suit all pockets. From the time that the lifts close, bars like the Fer à Cheval and the Offshore are active with a younger crowd, whilst Le Farinet usually has a live band. The Farinet Lounge Bar serves a range of contemporary and classic cocktails along with bento boxes and has DJs on regular occasions.

Later vibrant spots are the Mont Fort bar and the Casbah late night North African styled dance bar topping the range with its sophisticated style and atmosphere.

Restaurants are good and numerous. At the top end of the scale is the ‘Cordee des Alps’ restaurant whilst the trendy W Hotel has its own bar, restaurant and night club.  The Michelin starred La Table d'Adrien has easily the best gourmet dining, whilst at the other, the Fer à Cheval does great pizzas. A number of good moderately priced spots like Le Caveau are good at the local cheesy specialities.

Beneath the Farinet is the excellent South African inspired Pot Luck Restaurant.  

The ‘Apres ski’ usually hosts live bands  most days from 6 - 9pm. Le Rouge & Club bar has class and style without any of the stuffiness.  Try it for a pit-stop lunch on a panoramic terrace or quaff pink champagne through straws and writhe to resident DJs and share an evening meal with friends. 

The Marlenaz or Marmotte restaurants on the mountain with evening access by skidoo or ‘cat’ taxi and torchlit sledge down. The Nomad Restaurant in the Place Centrale is Verbier’s first sushi restaurant.  

SKIING IN Verbier

Ski Range 1,400m – 3,330m

Verbier relishes its reputation for big skiing, guaranteed snow on the Mont Fort Glacier, superb powder and vibrant nightlife. You’ll never run out of skiing here, both in Verbier itself and beyond taking in all of the Four Valleys, Switzerland’s biggest and most impressive ski region. Encompassing Verbier, La Tzoumaz, Nendaz, and Veysonnaz, it has a stunning selection of varied skiing. Recently, huge expenditure on the latest modern lifts has further improved the flow of skiers in the area and new signage has made your piste route planning a whole lot easier.

The two Médran gondolas lead up to Ruinettes and then Mont Gelé, Attelas or Mont Fort. A combimix lift ‘La Chaux Express’ now links Ruinettes with La Chaux by a combined six-person chairlift and eight-person gondola and completes the lift connection from Le Châble at 800m to Mont-Fort at 3,330m.

You can take your pick from endless variety in Verbier – open cruising, light-as-a-feather powder or VW beetle-sized moguls. Skiers and boarders alike will welcome the fact that all this main area is served by cable-cars, chairlifts and gondolas, giving those knees a well-earned rest.

Savoleyres, to the north-west of the resort, is an underrated area, where wide stretches of sunny, open slopes, great for intermediate cruising, lead to the glades of La Tzoumaz. Tortin is the gateway to the remainder of the Four Valleys, opening onto numerous runs, wooded and open, gentle and steep, which link five more resorts.

Verbier is also justly famed for its wonderful off piste terrain, ranging from scenic touring routes to the extreme challenge of Mont Gelé’s couloirs.
