Homely Traditional Chalet - 11/04/2011
Overall

The Chalet has fairly small rustic rooms, but its not really a problem. We were in the double on the living floor and it was a little smaller then the other rooms. It could probably have done with a new mattress but after very hard skiing all day, I didn’t have any bother sleeping... It is a traditional chalet so its all wood and it does creak and the noise does travel, we were luck enough to have a good bunch of people and its wasn’t a problem. Easy to get to from the bus stop and lifts, and short walk into the town. There are a small number of steps up to the chalet and you have to carry your bags and skis, so be warned for those that are not too fit. All in all the chalet was great, hostess was polite and friendly and accommodating. The resort is amazing and the skinning can be as hard as you want it to be...some amazing trail routes....

Apres-Ski 4/5

Boarded and skied in Verbier for the last 5 years. It is a great place for beginners and plenty for experts alike. There’s good off piste when there's fresh powder and a run from Mont Fort, not for the faint hearted, when snow is hard! Good for families - free ski bus to nursery slopes. Magic carpet on nursery slope and easy t-bar (cheap lift pass for this too). Good snow cover from December through to late April. We've skied North America and Europe and Verbier is better for us than North America as a family. You have just GOT to do the 10km toboggan run from Savoleyres to La Tzoumaz. Fantastic! Would give it 10 out of 10 - but it is pretty expensive in resort. A roast chicken coast me £12! Supermarkets are pretty good value - live off pasta and pizza!!

Skiing in Verbier is fantastic. It has some of the most challenging skiing in the Alps. Its off piste skiing is second to none and if there is enough fresh powder I would recommend trying the Bruson area on the other side of the valley. I had one of my best days skiing ever there. I was in waist deep powder and only took 4 lifts all day! Verbier has some of the best après ski bars in the Alps too. It is hard to beat!

Overall

Superb for advanced and off-piste skiers or boards and a very nice picturesque village with very good facilities, apres-ski, ski buses and snow record but the ski area is rather disjointed. The main ski area above the village is fine, as too is the Savoyere/La Tzoumaz area (very nice), but the far-flung reaches of the resort such as Nendaz, Thyon and Bruson are rather difficult to get to with some awkward ski routes on the way. A lot of drag lifts also, especially in the Thyon area. Also there are some ski routes that are mogulled and not that pleasant to ski , even for an experienced skier.
