Dear Friends of Verbier,
On behalf of the management and the entire staff of the Téléverbier Group, I hope that this message finds you and your loved ones safe and well.
These particularly turbulent and emotional past few weeks have had a profound effect on every one of us. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been felt across the globe and continues to have significant, and all too often tragic, health and economic consequences.
The measures taken by the Federal and Cantonal authorities in order to contain the spread of the virus have proven effective. The decreasing number of infections and the reopening of schools and businesses are a sign of that. Nevertheless, these measures have had an unprecedented impact on Téléverbier, as we were forced to close our ski area on the evening of 13 March 2020.
Just as we were enjoying an exceptional season, this premature closure left us with a bitter taste in our mouths. However, your health and safety, and that of our staff, are our priority and such a measure did not warrant discussion. Let us all continue to follow the authorities’ recommendations so that together, we can beat this virus.
Looking to the future
Although many uncertainties remain in the short-term, I am convinced that we will overcome this crisis. That is why the Téléverbier Group has decided to continue its planned development, taking advantage of this forced break to innovate and prepare for your return in the best possible way, especially since there are more and more of you choosing Verbier as your favourite holiday destination every year. This heart-warming news gives us even more motivation to improve our infrastructure, our services and our welcome in order to make your stay in our region as unique as it is unforgettable.
We can’t wait to welcome you once again to the magnificent Val de Bagnes and the 4 Vallées ski area so that you can discover all of the new activities we have been preparing for you, including a spectacular zip wire linking the summit of Mont-Fort to Les Gentianes. Until then, on behalf of the entire Téléverbier Group, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your trust, loyalty and affection for our resort. Thank you for bringing it to life in all its vibrancy. Thank you for shining a spotlight on it for all the world to see.
See you soon. Take care of yourselves and your loved ones!
Laurent Vaucher, CEO
