Ski & snowboard
The largest ski area in Switzerland
Verbier 4Vallées is a giant playground with 410 km of slopes and innumerable possibilities.
Skiers and snowboarders can enjoy whizzing down the carefully prepared slopes. Close your eyes and imagine the fresh tracks in the snow, wide slopes stretching out in front of you… Whether you’re a fan of carving or prefer perfecting your short turns, Verbier 4Vallées has everything you need. There are four different sectors, each with its own particularity. Here are some slopes worth discovering.
Piste des Attelas
If you are skiing in Verbier, you have to try the famous Attelas piste! Starting at 2,700 m, it is an exhilarating, 1000 m-long descent, which brings you straight to Le Mayentzet. After the first two sections, you can head towards Les Ruinettes for a shorter run. This gives you the chance to enjoy slopes with a vertical drop of 500 m and to rest your legs on the way up. For a well-earned break in the sun, stop off half-way at the Chalet Carlsberg, where you will receive a warm welcome and can savour delicious Italian food.
Piste du Coeur
From the top of Savoleyres (2,354 m), head down the northern face towards La Tzoumaz. This fabulous red run gives you a superb view of the Rhone Valley and the Vaud Alps. If your legs are tired after the first half, you can continue on the easier blue run, but if you still want more, carry on along this nice, regular slope, down to the cable car station.
Piste de la Pasay
Opposite Verbier, in the Bruson ski area, you’ll find the sensational La Pasay slope. If you want to fire up your thigh muscles, this is where to go! There are two options. The first is a black run, which starts right behind the chairlift, with a 35° slope at the top. The second option is easier, circling round a hill before gradually becoming steeper. With a 600 m vertical drop, this slope promises quite a challenge, even to more advanced skiers – ski champions such as Justin Murisier and William Besse did practise here, after all!
Piste du Mont-Fort
At 3,330 m, the Mont-Fort is the highest point of the Verbier 4Vallées ski area. Up there, new experiences await you. While the 360° panorama is stunning, a descent on the black run down the Tortin glacier will really make a lasting impression on you. The first 250 m are on a 35° slope, with bumps carved out by skiers. The altitude and north-easterly exposure of this slope generally guarantee excellent snow conditions. After that initial warm-up, you can glide down the wide, groomed slope towards the Col des Gentianes.
«The Verbier ski area is paradise for skiers, from beginners to experienced ones. I was lucky enough to leave my first tracks here in 1955. I developed my skills as a skier in Verbier, and went on to become a champion”.
