International ski resort!

Verbier is the best if the snow is good, with some excellent off-piste routes. However, for advanced skiers, there are not many challenges. It seems the perfect ski resort for beginners and intermediates - although none in our group! Verbier is an international resort so be prepared to push and shove with the Germans to get where you want to go! A couple of times older guys had a go at my kids for slipping through gaps in the lift queues - one even grabbed my 8 year old daughter by her hood and pulled her back! Nearly got in a fight but managed to keep my calm! French resorts may have a reputation for rude staff but at least there are mainly French and English people on the slopes!!! Just a bad one-off experience I'm sure! Very pretty place to be and overall a fun feeling here on and off the slopes.

Awesome off-piste

Skiing in Verbier is unbeatable - really challenging wiht some of the best off-piste skiing in the Alps. We were lucky - mid jan - to have deep fresh powder I would recommend trying the Bruson area where the off-piste is safe and just out of this world. I was with my wife who skis pretty well too and we would be recommend Verbier to hard skiers who like to feel the burn - not great for beginners - although I admit we didnt go anywhere near the nursery slopes!! Verbier has some really nice après ski bars too but nothing is cheap.

At last made it to Verbier

Wanted to go to Verbier since the kids were young - they now have their own kids! Finally got there last season and was not disappointed. Although I'm sure I didn't ski the way I would have all those years back! We stayed in lovely accommodation right on the mountains called Les Lutins. The views are beautiful its a wonderful, peaceful place to get away from it all. Obviously not for me anymore, but the youngsters seemed to be have a wild time off piste and on the snowparks! We took some nice walks too when the old legs got too tired!
