Vast wild areas such as the Vallon d’Arbi have formed Verbier’s reputation as a resort for freeride lovers.
The entrance to the Vallon d’Arbi can be found to the left near the bottom of the Lac des Vaux ski run (2.1). The entrance is an obvious narrow valley, easily recognisable by the large oragne netting used to indicate if this area is officially ‘open / ouvert’ or ‘closed / fermé’. Before departing check the electronic notice boards to see if the La Tzoumaz telecabin is operating.
