Verbier is located in the eastern central Valais region of Swiss Alps and is 160 kilometers or just under 100 miles from Geneva International Airport—making it a relatively easy ski resort to get to from just about anywhere in the world. Ski.com recommends flying into Geneva for the best rates. Most European ski resorts are best accessed via railway—rather than car—and Verbier is no different, however opting to travel by rail requires a train change in Martigny. Plus, the train station is located within the Geneva airport, making it quite convenient and stress-free. If you do rent a car, an all-wheel drive vehicle is recommended. Convenient airport transfers are also available.
If you decide to rent a car, driving there truly isn’t that difficult, but just remember you’re traveling through the Alps in winter conditions. As aforementioned, Ski.com recommends renting an all-wheel, winter-friendly vehicle.
From the airport follow signs to the A9 Motorway, driving for 74 kilometers, or 45 miles on A9. Then continue onto National Road 21/European Road E 27, driving for about 15 kilometers, or nine miles. Road 21/27 may be seasonally closed due to winter conditions. Follow signs for Verbier.
