Local Guide

The Destination

  • Verbier in Les 4 Vallées offers more than 400km of groomed piste. The resort’s reputation as a free rider’s paradise is well know around the world– Verbier has some of the best lift-served off-piste in the Alps.

Activities

  • A range of activities and diversions are offered at Experimental Chalet. From skiing with a pro-champion, flying with a bird-woman to a memorable experience from a helicopter.

Sustainable efforts

  • For years advanced skiers have loved the way Verbier’s lift system can deposit them at the top of three separate mountains, each with scintillating off-piste terrain. The fact that these lifts are powered by 100 percent renewable electricity deepens the allure. The journey there can be flight-free too: ten hours and three changes of train brings you from London to Le Châble — where you jump on a gondola up to the resort.

Local restaurants

  • Try Chez Dany, a classic mountain hut on the slopes with terrace and hearty swiss cuisine.
  • For a fine-dining experience, book a table at La Grange.

Dancing

  • Farm Club in the hotel, an iconic institution founded in 1971. Elegant, intimate and quirky, the legendary nightclub of the Swiss Alps has stood the test of time with its iconic atmosphere. The Farm Club has always been a favorite with its international epicurean clientele.

When to go

  • Best skiing months are from January until March.

How to get there

  • The nearest airport is Sion, which can be reached directly from London’s City and Heathrow airports. But there’s only one flight a week, though, so most people fly into Geneva (three hours’ drive) instead. The hotel can arrange transfers.
