Winter Activities In Verbier

For all current information on Verbier and the 4 Vallées Region, please visit: and


With 92 ski lift facilities, the Verbier/4 Vallées ski area is the largest in Switzerland, and deserves its fame. Runs for all levels criss-cross the amazing surroundings with modern infrastructure and guaranteed snow.

Rising to 3,330 meters, the highlight of the resort of Verbier is the Mont-Fort (3,300m). Its unique 360° panorama of the Alps allows one to see from the Matterhorn to Mont Blanc.

The ski resort of Verbier is exceptional. In addition to its slopes, it offers many groomed secure ski routes as well as extensive off-trail (off-piste) trails. Mont Fort, Mont Gelé, Chassoure-Tortin, the Vallon d'Arbi and the Col des Mines de Verbier are unique to the world.

The 4 Vallées Region combines more than 412km of ski runs linking the resorts of Verbier, La Tzoumaz and Bruson, as well as Nendaz, Veysonnaz and Thyon.

Also, as Verbier is close to the French and Italian borders, you can spend a day skiing in France on the beautiful slopes of Chamonix, and admire the the famous Argentière Glacier, all within a 90-minute drive, or within an hour's drive, ski in Italy at Crevacol near the Val d'Aosta, and have lunch at a traditional Italian restaurant.
