Skiing and winter activities.

Whether it’s a customised holiday designed around your group, or one of our catered breaks for just a couple of guests, we’ve got the facilities, expertise and flexibility to give you an unforgettable adventure set against the spectacular backdrop of Europe’s finest alpine resort.

Our chalet offers access to some of the region’s finest off-the-beaten-track skiing and snowboarding. Using the St Bernard Express train that stops just yards from the chalet, guests enjoy unrivalled access to Verbier, Bruson and other pistes and backcountry areas covered by their Four Valleys lift pass. Areas within a 30-minute car drive include Grand St Bernard, Vicheres, Ovronnaz and Marecottes, while Crans Montana, Aosta and Chamonix are less than an hour away.

For those who prefer to hit the slopes or facilities of Verbier itself, a very short and train ride connects with the high-speed gondola at Le Chable, taking skiers and boarders directly to the Ruinette area at 2200m and conveniently avoiding possible lift queues in the Verbier resort. Or go in the other direction up to Bruson on the new Gondola.  Le Chable’s gondola runs throughout the day, giving plenty of time for a little après ski in the lively bars and restaurants of Verbier, before descending to the low-key tranquillity of the valley.

Ask anyone who’s ever been to Verbier and they’ll tell you it’s definitely got something special.  It could be its excellent snow record, varied terrain and the fact that it enjoys one of Europe’s longest seasons, or perhaps it’s the resort’s famously friendly atmosphere, breathtaking setting and picture-postcard architecture. Whatever it is that makes it so unique, Verbier’s a resort people love coming back to year after year.

The Verbier ski area is vast, and includes 400km of varied and well-maintained pistes as well as a modern lift system comprising 100 lifts, the highest of which reaches the dizzy altitude of Mont Fort at 3330m. While nursery slopes and ski schools cater for absolute beginners and novices, more experienced skiers and boarders can choose from dozens of clearly-marked graded runs and a staggering selection of challenging off-piste terrain. There are two 10km toboggan runs which anyone can enjoy and for the real thrill-seekers and adventure junkies, professional guides and heli-skiing tours deliver serious backcountry action.
