Ski Resorts Verbier

 





Speaking of the Verbier ski resort, we will first have to note that the latest Good Ski Guide magazine Ski Resorts Verbierhas ranked it in three "Best of the Best" categories - advanced skiers, off-piste skiing and après-ski. Well it is not surprising because Verbier as one of the best resorts in the Four Valleys domain has access to 400 km of pistes, which alone is simply amazing. Verbier has always been one of the most preferred skiing destinations in Switzerland with its excellent sun and snow record especially at the higher altitudes. Besides it also offers a limited amount of year-round skiing on the Mont Fort glacier, which offers a breathtaking view of its environs. The resort offers a great skiing experience with unlimited off-piste and great black runs for advanced skiers. Besides, there is a specialist park for boarders as well. The Verbier resort offers excellent tuition classes to make better skiers out of its guests. The lift system also has been in a constant up gradation mode since 1994.

Speaking of dining, the Verbier resort boats of an excellent range of restaurants and entertainment options to keep it non-skiing guests occupied. Besides, its lively nightlife is the talk of the town.

If we go on to look at some of the disadvantages of the resort, we will notice that Verbier does have a number of them. Firstly, skiing lower down at Verbier can be poor because of the sun and you may have to wait in a long queue before you can actually try your hand at some skiing. The prices are also very high at Verbier, even for Switzerland. The accommodation is also not as satisfactory as it is made out to be. There is no doubt that Verbier is an excellent resort for better skiers but that does not discount its faults as they appear to the eye. It is also not quite in the same league as other domains like the Whistler, Trois Valees and Val d'Isere/Tignes. Nevertheless, Verbier is still a good skiing venue and offers views that are among the best in the world.
