Reliable snow for freeskiers in Verbier, Switzerland

At the centre of the Four Valleys, one of the largest ski areas in Europe, Verbier has everything a top-class winter-sports resort should have. The chalet-style village perches atop a sunwashed plateau and provides views of the majestic mountain peaks. It's a veritable eldorado for any snowsport fan, and the skiing area stretches from 1,500 to 3,330m. Thanks to the height and fine snow conditions, 93 lifts let you access 412 km of runs. Mont-Fort or Mont-Gelé and other legendary routes make every ski ace drool. Novices and experts alike will find exactly the kind of skiing they are looking for here. Verbier offers a rich variety of restaurants, shops, bars and discos.

Verbier has an excellent reputation for the quality and range of cuisine available through its 60 or so restaurants.


The Mont Fort Igloo is the highest igloo bar in Europe at 3,300 metres. For the breakfast of a lifetime take the cable cars to the summit of the Mont Fort and have coffee while you take in the 110 different peaks from Wildhorn, via the Diableret, the Jungfrau, the Weisshorn, the Matterhorn  and of course Mont Blanc.

The Cristal offers an excellent brunch from 8 a.m until 10 a.m at a mere 2,200 metres. This is the much revamped Les Runiettes restaurant.

In the resort itself non-residents can breakfast on the rather smart terrace of the Chalet Adrien where they serve breakfast from a very business-like 7.30 a.m until a more leisurely 10.30 a.m.


Chez Dany offers the best authentic mountain cabin restaurant with a fine terrace. Dogs, children and vegetarians welcome and well catered for. Specialities pumpkin soup with cream and country bread, fondue, fillet steak with morel mushrooms. Chemin de Clambin, 1936 Verbier +41(0)27-771-2524

The King's Restaurant in the King's hotel in the village centre. Recommended by Gault Millau. Specialities include a delicious Burratta - a mozzarella case round a soft cream cheese centre - or the risotto with truffles and mushroom sauce. Rue de la Poste, 1936 Verbier +41(0)27-775-2035


La Table d'Adrien with a Michelin star, where Marco Bassi has recently won the final of the Taitenger culinary competition. It is the ultimate Verbier dining experience. The menus have a strong Italian flavour with eight different ways of eating sardines and venison with sangria.

Le Carrefour is not to be confused with the supermarket chain of the same name. The Carrefour is perfect for lunch while on the slopes and when you want an evening fine-dining experience. Known for its range of cheese fondues and traditional Valasian specialties. You can hire a room for a private party if you want. Route du Golf 95, 1936 Verbier +41(0)277-715-555.

There is a more relaxed atmosphere at the Fer a Cheval pizza restaurant and bar  in the centre of town with a terrace in the sun by day and a lively atmosphere at night. Rue Medran, 1936 Verbier +41(0)277-712-669.

Harold's Burger Bar, also in the centre, is the ultimate refuge from the expensive Swiss Franc whilst at the same time eating well. Fine hamburgers are cooked to order for around CHF 10. At the same time you can use the internet connection and watch important sporting occasions on the wide screen.


If it is celebrity spotting that concerns you and money is no object  then try the genuinely world famous and seriously expensive Farm Club.

Otherwise the best dancing is at the Casbah nightclub. Located at the Hotel Farinet. Open every night, it is decorated to look like a Bedouin tent, with the award-winning Rock-Bar (hosted by DJ de Douche) next door.

The Pub Mont-Fort (named after the local peak) is a short trudge towards the top of the resort and is probably the best 'sessioning' venue for the younger set (under 30s). Party goers have been known to try to ski down the short flight of stairs to basement area which requires a very sharp parallel turn before the wall beckons.

As you leave the Mont-Fort at 4 a.m you can stop by at the side window of the local bakery and buy a croissant or fresh bread on your way home.

There are two spectacular skiing events held at Verbier: XSpeed and Verbier Ride. The XSpeed ski races where top speed skiers go from 3330m on the Mont Fort hitting speeds of 200km an hour are held in April. Verbier Ride, one of the top freeskiing competitions in the world, is held in the La Chaux snow park in January.

Not to be missed is the 10-kilometre-long toboggan run at La Tzoumaz with a drop of 848 metres - crash helmets required and children accompanied.

A must-do is a visit to the top of the Mont Fort with its unforgettable view so even if you are a beginner get up there before you leave and enjoy it. If you have a Four Valleys ski pass you will not have to pay extra for the cable car. For competent skiers there is the possibility of staying in the somewhat Spartan Cabane Mont Fort  at 2457 metres. The only access is on skis. Julien, who has been staying there for years told us "Amazing, you're on top of the world, sunset and sun rise over the clouds, the world of the everyday are little specks of light far below. You should come and see for yourself".
