Go big, or go home. Situated between the Matterhorn and Mont Blanc at a height of 5,000 feet, a Verbier ski vacation offers one of the largest ski areas in Europe.

Verbier offers its visitors 60 restaurants, 15 nightclubs and pubs, ensuring that every evening preference is tangible. The village’s ultra-modern sports center provides visitors the best off-piste activities as well, including tennis, squash, ice hockey, curling, skating and swimming.

As an annual host to the Freeride World Tour—an elite extreme skiing and snowboard competition—you can bet that Verbier skiing will challenge the best. Experts will find that Verbier has a lot of off-piste runs and moguls. Experts will want to hire a guide to explore Verbier’s famed off-piste routes.

Freestylers will find plenty to do in Verbier’s two terrain parks. Verbier has an ideal beginner learning area called the "Jardin de Neige.”
