About Verbier

In winter, the extraordinary skiing region offers limitless pleasure for advanced skiers from all over the world as well as for beginners. In summer, mountain bike and hiking enthusiasts can choose from among numerous marked trails. The alpine village has countless activities in store for families, senior citizens and young people alike: paragliding, Heli ski, sledding, golf, museums, and local produce to try.


As soon as the first snow falls, Verbier becomes a mecca for winter sports enthusiasts. The "4 Valleys" ski zone − with no less than 410 km of ski runs and over 89 ski lifts – embraces five resorts: Verbier, Nendaz, Veysonnaz, Thyon and La Tzoumaz. A cable car takes skiers to the summit of Mont-Fort (altitude: 3330 m), from where the descent is one of the most superb "black runs" in the Alps.

Non-skiers can also enjoy the winter countryside on a snowshoe walk, by taking the hiking trails or launching out on the longest toboggan run in the French-speaking region of Switzerland (length: 10 km). The resort of Verbier is known to ski tourers as a staging-post on the "Haute Route" from Chamonix to Zermatt.


Over 500 km of signposted trails guide hiking aficionados across the Verbier heights and the Val de Bagnes. Seasoned hikers can set out to discover classic routes such as the Tour du Val de Bagnes and Tour des Combins. Mountain-bike enthusiasts will find plenty of itineraries – no less than 826 km – and a bike park. The region also offers various other leisure pursuits: 2 golf courses, climbing routes, an adventure park, paragliding and many activities besides. One attraction not to be missed: the climb to the summit of Mont-Fort, with sweeping views from the Matterhorn to Mont Blanc.
