Verbier - Val de Bagnes - La Tzoumaz - an infinite playground!

A return to our origins!

A stylish resort geared to sport, the elegant and authentic village of Verbier is an attractive blend of the modern and traditional. Elected Switzerland’s best ski resort for the past two years, it manages to combine extreme sensations, simple pleasures and on-trend lifestyles. A genuine source of energy that offers an unlimited playground – the 4 Valleys (Switzerland’s biggest skiable area), iconic slopes and peaks and a multiplicity of activities to get involved in – the destination and its wide-open spaces are also an inexhaustible source of inspiration for everyone who loves the natural world.

Fine food and night-life lovers, too, will find a multitude of venues for their enjoyment. In the air, on the pistes, in the streets, on the terraces; with skis on your feet, seated at a table, or snuggled up in a bathrobe… Verbier caters for all tastes and preferences. On the menu this winter: new in town, health-protection measures, sustainable development and high-altitude mountain huts.

WHAT’S NEW

A fine winter ahead: brand-new and just as wonderful! A new four-star boutique hotel on the Place Centrale, two new restaurants (one of them gastronomic), Europe’s highest zipline, a brand-new pub, a renovated mountain hut… The destination took the opportunity for a little restyle this summer. New things to try out without delay…

COVID: this winter, we’re focusing on getting in touch with nature and the wide-open spaces!

Switzerland is considered one of the safest countries there is. And during this time of health crisis, it’s doing its utmost to stay that way. As such, the resort is complying with all the health guidelines embodied in MySwitzerland’s ‘Clean & Safe’ campaign to guarantee its visitors a stay that’s as safe and comfortable as can be. Because all guests have an equally important role to play in this respect, Verbier has drawn up a Charter for Visitors to remind them of the key rules of conduct that need to be followed.

Sporty, extreme, epicurean, cutting edge… a bucket list for all tastes!

As a huge playing-field ringed by snow-covered peaks, the destination Verbier – Val de Bagnes – La Tzoumaz offers a standing invitation to just get away from it all. Alpine skiing, freeride, ski touring, snowshoeing, dog sledding, freefall, ice climbing, hang gliding: the list is long and thrills are guaranteed. On your own, with family or with friends, any time is the right time for you to do what you want to do and what you can do. Whatever your preferred route to escape, local professionals and highly reputed ambassadors are on hand to help.

Verbier's ‘green’ side

Because ‘the environment’ should not just be something to worry about, everyone in Verbier’s tourism community (ski-lift and ski area operators, ambassador sports personalities, restaurateurs, artisans, farmers and so on) has a contribution to make in limiting the impact that tourism and winter sports have on the world around us. On the pistes or on your dinner plate; food for thought or plans of action; artistic, practical or economic visions… let’s focus in on the environmentally-responsible initiatives that have either already been implemented or are under way in the region:
