Verbier for New Year... Absolutely amazing! I stayed at the Chalet Hotel De Verbier a over the new year period and in all honesty it was perfect. Hotel doesn't look like the Ritz but, for what you need on a ski trip it's perfect. Great central location right in the centre of Verbier, had the new year street party right out side and the Medran lift is about 4 min walk up the hill. All the main après ski bars/restaurants, like the Farinet, are located within easy walking distance - most under a minute. The food was great, really impressed to be honest - plus unlimited wine served throughout is always nice!
The skiing? We were amazingly fortunate when we were there. Snowed solidly the first few nights, so was pow pow for the rest of the holiday! Verbier is so high and is part of the 4 Valleys area, so it's a snow sure resort most of the time and it definitely lived up to that.
To sum up, if you are looking for a snow sure holiday with fantastic après and some challenging skiing look no further than Verbier, it has it all!
