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

Back to our roots!

A charming fusion of modern and traditional, Verbier is both a sporty, glamorous resort and an authentic alpine village. Voted Switzerland’s best ski resort for the past two years, it offers adrenaline-packed thrills, simple pleasures and a chic lifestyle. A source of pure energy, the 4 Valleys is Switzerland’s largest ski area offering an infinite playground that encompasses legendary pistes and peaks and a whole host of activities. Verbier’s wide open spaces are also a source of constant inspiration for nature lovers.

And foodies and night owls will be dazzled by the vast choice of top-notch places to eat and drink. Up in the air, on the slopes, in the streets, on the terraces, with skis on or off, seated at a table or wrapped in your bathrobe… Verbier definitely has something for everyone. This winter 2020/21, the focus is on exciting new openings, Covid safety measures, sustainable initiatives and mountain huts.

WHAT’S NEW

This winter is shaping up to be especially exciting and brand-new! During the summer, Verbier took time out for a bit of a restyle with a chic upgraded 4-star boutique hotel on the Place Centrale; two superb restaurant openings including one with a gastronomic menu; a dizzying descent across a glacier with Europe’s highest zip line; a brand-new pub (details to follow); and contemporary renovations to a quintessentially alpine mountain hut.

COVID-19: THIS WINTER, WE’RE FOCUSING ON RECONNECTING WITH NATURE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS!

Switzerland is considered one of the safest countries in the world and during this unprecedented time 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 safe and comfortable stay.

And because all of our guests play an equally important role, Verbier has drawn up a visitors’ charter highlighting eight important actions we ask our visitors to follow.

SPORTY, EXTREME, GOURMET, CUTTING EDGE… A BUCKET LIST FOR ALL TASTES!

Amid snow-covered peaks, Verbier’s vast playground is the perfect place to get away from it all. Alpine skiing, freeriding, ski touring, snowshoeing, dog sledding, freefalling, ice climbing, paragliding… there’s an endless list of adrenaline pumping adventures. Solo or with family and friends, you’ll find plenty to suit all levels and abilities. And if you want to steer clear of the crowds, our resident professionals and renowned ambassadors are on hand to show you the best routes.

VERBIER'S ‘GREEN’ SIDE

The environment shouldn’t just be a “concern”, so Verbier’s tourism community (ski lift and ski area operators, sports ambassadors, restaurants, local producers, farmers, etc.) have committed to doing their bit by reducing the impact of tourism and winter sports on the environment in their own way. Either on the pistes or on the plate, food for thought or as a plan of action, with an artistic, practical or economic vision, the following eco-responsible initiatives are either underway or already in place.
