To celebrate this achievement, a delegation from Verbier attended the gala ceremony organised by the World Ski Awards on Saturday 17 November in Kitzbühel. The winners of the various categories were officially unveiled at this ceremony, where Verbier discovered that it had won the “Switzerland’s Best Ski Resort” category. This award was presented to the ski resort that received the most votes.
