Apres-ski, restaurants and other activities in Siviez
There are very little restaurants in the Siviez village so for apres-ski entertainment we suggest heading to the surrounding resorts of either Verbier or Nendaz which has a much larger option of bars, fine dining and even nightclubs for those late night partiers. There are plenty of ski huts located on the mountains of Verbier and Nendaz where skiers can enjoy a nice beverage or snack whilst admiring the panoramic views of the swiss mountains. From there skiers tend to ski down to the neighbouring resort for afternoon lunch or hit one of the apres-ski bars with live music and entertainment. There is a quick bus transfer from Siviez to Nandez where guests can enjoy late night dining.
For non-skiers Verbier and Nendaz and other close by resorts offer other winter activities to enjoy including snowshoeing, cross-country trails, winter hiking and paragliding.
Transfer time in Siviez
