Ski in Verbier

Give in to the call of Switzerland's largest ski resort

Winter season 2023/2024

Last season, skiers were able to enjoy the slopes in Verbier from December 3rd to April 23rd.

The ski area

The Verbier ski resort is an integral part of the huge 4 Valleys ski area. By opting for the 4 Vallees ski pass, you can access a multitude of almost infinite possibilities.

Why ski in the 4 Valleys?

The 4 Vallees ski area offers thousands of reasons to take to the slopes. Here are 4 of them:

  • The Attelas slope: You can't ski in Verbier without taking this slope! Start at an altitude of over 2,700 m and ski down this run in one go for a descent of over 1,000 m to Mayentzet. If you prefer, you can shorten the distance by branching off after the first two sections towards Les Ruinettes. With this option, you'll benefit from a 500 m difference in altitude, and you can rest your legs on the way up. Take a well-earned break at Chalet Carlsberg - a charming restaurant serving Italian cuisine - halfway up the first slopes. 

  • La piste du cœur : Join La Tzoumaz by plunging down the northern slope of the 4 Vallees ski area, from the summit of Savoleyres at an altitude of 2,354 m. This red run offers exceptional views of the Vaud Alps and the Rhône Valley. If you wish, you can make your descent easier by opting for a blue run after the first part of the route, or if you're not satisfied, you can continue down this magnificent, steady slope until you reach the gondola departure point. 

  • The Pasay run: Looking for indescribable thrills? Take on the Pasay descent in the Bruson ski area, opposite Verbier. There are two options to choose from. A black run with a gradient of almost 35°, which starts immediately behind the chairlift, or a simpler run, which skirts around a hill before getting steeper and steeper. This second option, with its 600m vertical drop, is guaranteed to be a great challenge, even for the most experienced skiers.

  • The Mont-Fort piste: If you're looking for a unique experience, we recommend you opt for the Mont-Fort, which is the highest point in the Verbier 4 Vallees area, standing at 3,330 metres above sea level. Here you can enjoy a breathtaking 360° view, as well as a black run down the Tortin glacier. 

Verbier, a resort for all skiers

Skiing in Verbier gives you access to the entire 4 Vallees ski area, its slopes and its infrastructure. So you can take full advantage of Switzerland's largest ski area.

Verbier 4 Vallees is 410 kilometres of slopes and an unlimited playground. Whether you're a skier, snowboarder, carving enthusiast or just want to work on your short turns, the area is perfect for all your needs. 

And you don't need to be very experienced to appreciate all the possibilities the resort has to offer. You can choose between 5 black runs, 8 red runs, 8 blue runs and 6 yellow runs.

With children

The Verbier ski area has several zones that have been specially designed for children learning to ski. For a gentle start, the conveyor belts are perfect! Les 4 Vallees has three of them, including one at La Tzoumaz and two in Verbier: Les Moulins and Les Esserts.

If your child is starting to gain confidence and wants to take things to the next level, the "Verbier Station" sector is just the thing. You can also accompany your young skier on one of the simpler blue runs at the top of the resort. 

In addition, Verbier has 18 ski schools where you can enroll your child so that they can learn and progress quickly and safely with the help of qualified instructors.

Other sensations, other glides

The 4 Valleys ski area is not just about skiing, and there's something for everyone who loves other types of snow sports and other sensations.

For example, you could go sledging down one of the longest runs in French-speaking Switzerland. To do so, head for the La Tzoumaz - Savoleyres sector. You'll enjoy an incredible panorama of the peaks north of the Alps and the Rhone plain, while enjoying a descent with a difference in altitude of more than 700 m. This unforgettable activity will give you the chance to spend some quality time with friends and family, and is sure to provide plenty of laughs. 

You can also choose to enjoy a unique experience with an introduction to mushing. You'll discover a different way of enjoying the snow and winters in the mountains. Throughout the winter season, two packages are available from Les Ruinettes: the "panoramic tour" and "become a musher for a day". 

The first option allows you to enjoy a 5-kilometre ride through the sublime scenery of the Val de Bagnes while being pulled by 10 sled dogs. The second option gives you the opportunity to get to know the dogs, fit them with harnesses and drive the sled pulled by two or three dogs.  

Verbier, a freeride paradise

Considered a freeride paradise, Verbier owes its reputation to the many foreign freeriders who descend the slopes of the resort, to the Verbier Xtreme and to its ungroomed but safe and signposted itineraries.

As one of the first resorts to offer this kind of free but secure area, Verbier 4 Vallees now offers freeriders no fewer than seven untouched powder routes, protected from the dangers of the mountains.

These can be recognised by the orange and yellow pegs and are represented on the resort's piste map by a yellow line. There's no need to leave the pistes - you're sure to find what you're looking for!

For Nordic skiers

At the 4 Valleys, the cross-country ski routes overlook the region, take in the forest or run along the banks of the Dranse. Whatever the case, they are synonymous with diversity and pleasure. In total, you can enjoy four routes ranging from 2.5 km to 6 km in the Val de Bagnes and Verbier region.

  • Les Ruinettes - La Chaux - 2.5 km (one way / itinerary): at an altitude of 2,200 m, you can admire the exceptional view of the Combins massif and the valley.

  • La grande boucle de Champsec - 6.0 km (loop): this trail is suitable for all abilities. You'll enjoy the idyllic and peaceful setting of the Domaine de la Sasse, while getting some fresh air.

  • La petite boucle de Champsec - 3.6 km (loop): this trail is a reduced version of the one above.

  • Le Plamproz - 2.4 km (loop): this route is laid out with a succession of flats, climbs, descents and slaloms to allow you to enjoy your cross-country skiing session to the full.
