Les 4 Vallées in short
Les 4 Vallées enjoys close-to-perfect snow conditions from December to April. With over 410km of very diverse ski slopes, this is the largest all-Swiss linked ski area and every type of skier and snowboarder will find what they're looking for here. Les 4 Vallées connects the ski resorts of Verbier, La Tzoumaz, Nendaz, Veysonnaz and Thyon-Les Collons. Verbier is the most popular as this is where most of the skiing is situated. However, the other resorts have plenty to offer and are particularly attractive for those looking for lower prices! Les 4 Vallées is famous for being home to some of the most challenging skiing in the Alps, with a fantastic variety of steep red and challenging black ski slopes and plenty of off-piste for powder hounds.
Each ski resort in Les 4 Vallées gives easy access to Verbier and the wider linked ski area. The best slopes for first-time skiers are found lower down, at the ski resorts of La Tzoumaz and Verbier. A great snow park at La Chaux awaits snowboarders looking for some thrills! With most of the skiing above 2500m of altitude in Les 4 Vallées and lifts taking skiers up as high as 3300m to the summit of the Mont-Fort, snow conditions are never an issue here. The ski resort of Nendaz has particularly good facilities for children, making it a good choice for family ski holidays in Les 4 Vallées. Verbier and the rest of the ski resorts are a short drive from Switzerland's Geneva Airport, making the ski area popular with British skiers.

Mont Fort in Les 4 Vallées
The towering peak of Mont Fort (3330m) watches over the whole of Les 4 Vallées and is in many ways the epicentre of the ski area. From the summit you can enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding mountain peaks, including the Matterhorn (4478 m) and Mont Blanc (4810 m), from Europe's highest igloo bar. Tackle the challenging black piste with waist-high moguls if you dare, or hop over to the other side to access the wonderful off-piste terrain. It used to be possible to ski at Mont Fort in the summer. Unfortunately, due to severe melting of the glacier, this is no longer possible.
