Aside from Switzerland’s stereotypical treasures, the country has more to offer such as the gorgeous blue of Lake Geneva and the lush green hiking trails in Swiss National Park. However, ski-filled Alpine adventure is what makes Verbier, Switzerland stand out among most. The village of Verbier has become a snow-filled oasis for the avid thrill-seeking skier. If you want to switch up which mountains you’re sliding down, the Swiss Alps offer unbeatable slopes. And when you stay at W Verbier, one of Switzerland’s top ski resorts, you’re sure to pave a steady path through the gorgeous Swiss Alps with ease.
Keep You Warm
With skiing being the main attraction, it might be easy to overlook what W Verbier – the cozy mountain-side hotel – has to offer. Built with mixes of urban, contemporary and daring design, the resort invites you to enjoy stylish accommodations with fireplaces that keep you warm and toasty on those cold Alpine evenings. Each room also features signature W beds, private balconies, modern amenities and pockets for relaxation. Voted World’s Best Ski Resort in 2016, 2017 and 2018, this resort is truly unique because of the experience it offers within its walls. Each day can be made better when you visit one of six swanky bars and restaurants. Fill up on coffee at Arctic Juice & Café, dance your shoes off at W OFF PISTE or treat yourself to scrumptious plates from W KITCHEN, CARVE Sushi Bar and EAT-HOLA Tapas Bar. You can find even more bliss at the hotel’s signature AWAY® Spa with La Prairie treatments and products, or at the shimmering WET® Pool. In the summer, you can put the skis away and enjoy The Beach at Place Blanche and volleyball courts that let you get in touch with your competitive side. Everything is under one roof during your stay at this highly-recognized resort. But what’s most important lies outside -- over 400 kilometers of breathtaking skiing and hiking terrain.
If you’re ready to shred your way through the Swiss Alps, listen up. The W Verbier resort has just what you need to drop easily and conveniently into your snow adventure. The Verbier, Nendaz, Veysonnaz and Thyon make up Les 4 Vallées, making it the largest ski domain on Swiss soil. Located just steps away from the hotel is Medran Gondola, your access to this ski haven.
When you ski with W Verbier, you will discover 256 miles of snow-packed slopes offering 92 lifts and options for all levels. Whether you’re experienced and want to take on the freeriding trails or need an expert guide for a tour down the pistes, there are ample amounts of options, so you won’t miss out on one of the world’s greatest ski destinations.
If you’re down for a challenge, venture to Mont-Fort – the highest point at 3,300 meters. Still looking for more? You can elevate your adventure with a heli-skiing experience, dropping you atop untouched snow-studded peaks from a helicopter.
There is no end to what you can do at this ski resort. But when the snow melts away, you can still enjoy the outdoors when you take on hiking trails, an 18-hole golf course or the Verbier Bike Park. Just be sure to make your reservations in advance for all services in the winter.
Off the Slopes
Although skiing may be your first priority, there’s plenty more to do in Verbier. Mark your calendars for the ultimate gastronomic event, Haute Cuisine, hosted on the first weekend of April. If you’d love to be dripping some fondue during the winter, head to the highest fondue spot in Europe at Igloo du Mont-Fort. Don’t forget to pack your hiking boots for an escapade through Lac des Vaux and Lac de Louvie in the summer, or opt in for July’s Montreux Jazz Festival. And don’t forget to bring it back to the basics when you satisfy your sweet tooth with Swiss chocolate at the Chocolaterie de Verbier.
