Verbier glitters like the powdered snow that has made it a winter hotspot. Strike out from your luxury hotel and explore soaring mountains and deep valleys. Don your skis for an afternoon on the slopes, or explore the village, with its many chic boutiques. Then relax on a sun-soaked terrace and take in Alpine views.
A sparkling jewel among the famous ski-slopes of the Valaisian Alps.
Things to do
SPORT & FAMILY ACTIVITIES
Verbier is part of the famous Four Valleys, a paradise for skiers and snowboarders. There are plenty of options for all abilities, from beginners’ lessons to challenging off-piste routes. Verbier has something to offer in the warmer months too, with miles of hiking and mountain bike trails through the surrounding mountains.
Verbier has plenty of tempting retreats to return to after a day on the slopes. Unwind with a hot chocolate at one of the village’s many ski lodges. Tuck into a fondue in a cosy restaurant. Or keep the buzz going at lively bars and decadent VIP clubs.
FOOD & DRINK
From high-altitude bars overlooking the mountains to sampling warming, local dishes, Verbier has something to suit all tastes. Take a seat in a traditional wooden chalet and dine on Swiss favourites like melted raclette and potato rösti. Or enjoy an evening of fine dining at gourmet restaurants that serve up the best of Swiss, German and French cuisine.
Verbier is far more than a skiing hotspot. In summer the village hosts an acclaimed classical music festival and the thrilling Grand Raid Cristalp mountain biking competition.
