Verbier is world renowned for its challenging terrain and great off piste itineries, but the vast ski area offers something for everyone, making this the perfect resort for a mixed ability group. The beginner’s area has excellent facilities, intermediates will definitely be technically challenged, and advanced skiers are sure to be exhilarated when attempting the many chutes and gullies. The altitude guarantees a long season of great snow conditions.
The ski area
Verbier offers access to one of the world’s top 5 largest lift linked ski areas, with 410km of marked piste available for your pleasure.
It is possible for newer skiers can have a great experience in Verbier. However, a good level of intermediate skiing is required to make the most of the 4 valleys lift pass as some areas are linked by tricky reds.
There are 4 main ski areas to access from Verbier:
The vast ski area is connected by some of the highest quality lifts in Switzerland, making it comfortable and easy to get around.
- Verbier is well connected and offers something for all abilities. If you want to do some long, uninterrupted cruising, there are plenty of highspeed lifts that will maximise your time on the slopes.
- La Tzoumaz/ Savoleyres are popular for beginners and families but also have some fun options for tree skiing. If you want some great holiday action footage, the first drone slope in Europe was created here.
- Mont Fort/ 4 Valleys. Get to the top of Mont Fort for exceptional views of both the Matterhorn and Mont Blanc. This is the best area to access advanced terrain.
- Bruson is a good place to head when the weather is less nice. The lower altitude and tree lined slopes will shelter you from the elements. The slopes are well suited for beginners or intermediates, and boarders can find some great off-piste options.
Verbier is an excellent destination for snowboarders, with many favouring the Bruson area. This area provides access to a lot of off-piste that is well suited to boarders. Here you can find lots of bowls and forests for weaving through the trees. Beginners have their own nursery area at Les Esserts. The park at Thyon is organised by ability, has a giant airbag and boarder cross run. When you want a rest, there is a bar with music at the bottom for relaxing.
Les Moulins is close to the centre of town, which has a creche and a great beginner area for children. Older beginners should start a little higher at Les Esserts. With a magic carpet and drag lifts, there are plenty of opportunities to grasp the basics. If you want to get some extra practice in, Lourtier is a 20 minute drive from Verbier and has a free beginners slope that is flood lit and open at night.
When ready to progress to the main slopes, La Tzoumaz and Savoleyres have some nice greens that will leave you satisfied that you have had a chance to explore the mountains.

To eliminate those first day back on the slope jitters, start at Le Rouge for an unintimidating blue. Then head up to La Chaux and give yourself the first work out of the day with a long tree lined blue.
With red runs making up 40% of the 4 Valleys, this will definitely be the holiday to execute your technical skills. Once you have found your snow feet again, you will want to spend a day in Veysonnaz for magical scenery and a good variety of reds.
The longest run in resort is Mont Fort which offers a moguled start before taking a steep 15km descent back to the fall line. Keep a look out for Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn on the way down. Piste de L’ors provides views of Sion and is wide with open bends, allowing you to pick up some serious speed.
Verbier has some of the most accessible back country skiing in the world and is unique for its lift served off-piste routes. Lac des Vaux is a safe option if you are newer to off-piste, with easy access to the main slope for some extra security. Tree lined Bruson forest is a great option on bad weather days. Best explored with a guide, the iconic stairway to heaven is a magical must do. Altitude are a good option if you are looking to maximise your off-piste experience.
