Came across a great slide show in my copy of Swiss
I thought I would link to it from all of our Swiss

Lets look here helping you find the best price for
the remainder of he ski season in Verbier. There are
scores of ski resorts and resort areas in Europe
marketing themselvesas the biggest, the highest, or
the mightiest. However, there are indeed very few
that can actually live up to some, if not all, of
One you might take a closer look
at is the Swiss resort of Verbier
Something, isn't it? You get not only the very
impressive ski domain tied to the Verbier ski pass,
but, if you buy an all-area pass you get the whole
Swiss Four Valleys region thrown in as well. This
entitles you to hurtle your ski-clad frame down some
very challenging mountainsides in some six or so
Heck, there is so much to explore here that
in this writer's estimation it would take one the
better part of a season to do it all thoroughly. And
the good news is, if you think through the lift pass
possibilities, compute them with your skiing
ability, energy storage and late night rock 'and

As a resort for skiers, Verbier is, really,

total kms.of prepared slopes. The Swiss resort
is also awesome in lift capacity with 96
different means of uphill transportation. And,
last but by no means least, Verbier is awesome
in downright challenge.
There are a huge number
of really challenging runs in and around Verbier.
Expert skiers know it far and wide, as one of
the most difficult skiing resorts anywhere.
That's a given. But what about the vast majority
of viewers to this domain? Should they give
Verbier a miss? Should they be put off by
Verbier's "daunting" reputation? We don't think
There is adequate space for beginners, either at
the village level, or higher up the mountain.
Almost immediately, first time skiers can get
the feel of some high altitude skiing in a safe
and sound environment. The area around La
Ruinettes and Attelas is a good area on which to
improve, and it has the added advantage of a
couple of on-slope restaurants where you can
meet up with more experienced friends. The new
Tortin cable car will solve any queue problems
on the way back from the 4 valleys.
