The Saint Nicolas celebrations are returning to Verbier!

Pencil Saturday, 7 December into your diary and celebrate the start of the season in Verbier with us!

The day pass costs CHF 5 for anyone dressed up as Saint Nicholas as per the terms and conditions*. The event supports the ProJo association, which aims to support those suffering from spinal cord injuries resident in Valais by financing the assistance they need to recover and any other support they may need that is not covered by their insurance (such as care/treatment and health, medical and paramedical professional fees)*Participants must be wearing at least a suitable hat, beard and coat to qualify for the special offers.

Costumes will be on sale at Le Châble, Médran, Savoleyres and La Tzoumaz for CHF 25 (subject to availability). The Saint Nicholas will receive a coffee and croissant at Le Châble and Médran.

All participants will be given a “2 for 1” voucher during the day.

Everyone in costume will meet up at Chalet Carlsberg for the traditional group photo and a happy hour at 2.30pm.

They will also get the chance to sip a cocktail and show off their moves on the dance floor to tracks selected by our DJ during the après-ski at the Médran Café.

A monoski test will be offered free of charge at Les Ruinettes by the "Team Monoski Swiss".
