A freeride paradise, you might want to consider somewhere else if you enjoy endless flat, cruising runs. Here, you'll find steep, deep, high-alpine terrain best suited to intermediate and expert skiers and snowboarders.

The ski area is split over some of the highest peaks in Europe, which can feel a bit fractured at times, but most of the terrain is lift-accessible with no long hikes, and once you get amongst the good stuff you'll see why Verbier is so renowned in the ski community. 

The resort base at 1,500m means a high chance of abundant snow from November to April and there's more to the piste map than first meets the eye. Look out for the yellow off-piste itinerary runs - named runs which are neither groomed nor patrolled - or hire a mountain guide to get off the beaten track.

Aside from downhill, the area is known for backcountry ski touring, heli-skiing and cross-country skiing and there are plenty of ways to enjoy nature off skis too. Hiking (with or without snowshoes), dog sledding, horse sleigh rides and even one of the longest bobsled runs in Switzerland offer the chance for fun moments off the slopes with family or friends.

The town itself, while not perfect for non-skiers, is beautiful to walk around with plenty of excellent restaurants and bars. Famous for its lively evenings, Verbier is proud of its many après-ski venues, clubs and events. During Freeride Week, the High Five and above all the Verbier Xtreme, the mountains become a bit rowdier.

It's not all about partying though, Verbier should also be explored through its authentic heritage. Don’t miss a visit to the Bagnes Museum, followed by an excellent raclette or a gourmet meal.

"An internationally renowned resort, Verbier is one of the best in the world for steep, deep, off-piste terrain. Ski hard - party hard. Verbier in a nutshell. Quite literally one of the best ski resorts in the world."
