A winter paradise for skiing, somewhere between heaven and earth. The majestic four-thousanders form a magnificent setting dedicated to winter sports. If you like winter, you’ll love Valais! The possibilities are boundless and snow is guaranteed. No great surprise when you realise that Valais is the region in Switzerland that, thanks to the altitude of its ski areas, promises the best snow conditions on its 2400 kilometres of slopes.
Ski resort Verbier
As soon as the first snow falls, Verbier becomes a winter sports paradise. A cable car leads to summit of Mont Fort (3330m) with magnificent views to the Matterhorn, Grand Combin and Mont Blanc. The winter landscape can also be savoured on foot thanks to the many snowshoe and winter hiking trails. Vierbier is also famed as the starting point and stage in the so-called ‘Haute Route’ to Zermatt and Saas Fee.
