The Swiss Alps offer the world a winter wonderland with its world-renowned snowcapped wooden chalets. And there is no other place to enjoy those beautiful mountain chalets that the village of Verbier, in the municipality of Banes in the canton of Valais in the southwestern part of Switzerland.

Some areas of Verbier are covered with snow throughout the year. Many of the world’s top skiers have settled in the area of Verbier where they can enjoy the steep slopes, the varied conditions, and the resort culture year-round.

Off-piste Skiing
Verbier is famous for its off-piste or backcountry skiing on unmarked ski runs. The famous off-piste runs include the Backside of Mont Fort, Bec des Etagnes, Stairway to Heaven, Croix de Coeur, and a lot more. Verbier is one of the very few resorts that have a mountain with no pistes coming down it, the Mont Gelé. There is also the opportunity, though rare, to ski 700 vertical meters from Verbier Village to Le Châble below.
