About Verbier

Verbier is one of the world’s top resorts and has something to offer everyone from non-skier to off piste expert skiers and snowboarders.

With the very strong pound Verbier is now very inexpensive, save money and buy in Switzerland, you will be amazed.

Access to Verbier is very quick via Easyjet or Swissair with a transfer time of just under 2 hours, (any day) or Crossair to Sion with transfer of 45 minutes (Saturdays only). By road with a ferry or tunnel crossing (530 miles from Calais). Rail (by train to Paris, Paris to Martigny and taxi to Verbier).

On arrival in resort you are initially hit with the alpine charm Verbier has retained. Chalet and hotels are of traditional architectural style set against snow-covered meadows and pine-woods. Looking around the south-facing valley you are treated to wonderful views of high mountain peaks that form a breathtaking backdrop to Verbier.

At an altitude of 1500m we have a superb snow record enabling you to ski back to the chalets or village for most of the season. The clever use of snow making machines has prolonged the snow life on all access paths.

The skiing is second to none with over 400km of groomed piste and nearly double off piste. There is challenging and rewarding skiing at all levels. Perhaps this why Verbier has been the serious skier’s favourite resort for years.

Verbier has met the challenge for Snowboarders, providing them with snowboard parks, big air jumps, half pipes, and boarder cross courses to test their skill, agility and daring. All this as well as great riding on and off piste.

Contrary to many so-called experts, Verbier is an excellent place to learn to ski or improve your skills. Maison du Sport can offer everything from total beginners lessons to Heliskiing, snowboarding to carving lessons and the new popular snowblading, (the kids love it) All levels and ages are catered for and the instructors speak English.

After a day’s excitement on the piste, ski back to the resort and take tea on the balcony, enjoying the afternoon sun, admiring the fantastic scenery and reliving the days hair-raising experiences.

The Apres-Ski takes a lot of beating, offering something for every style, pocket and age. Apres starts early calling at ‘Offshore’ or ‘Fer a Cheval’ for the first beer of the evening. Place Central is the next port of call to enjoy the live band in the Farinet and get into the party mood.

Verbier offers exciting shopping opportunities. With the strong pound, clothes and equipment are very competitively priced and in many cases much cheaper than the UK

If you have enough energy left after a days skiing and a 3 course dinner at the chalet you can sample some of Verbier’s famous night life starting at the ‘Pub Mont’, or if you are younger ‘Big Ben’, drifting onto many of the other bars around town with a final burst at one our night clubs ‘Marshals’, ‘Tara’ or the famous ‘Farm Club’ where you can party until 4.0 am.

Or if you prefer you can just relax in the chalet with some drinks and music.

Non Skiers are extremely well catered for as they can travel all over the mountains on the lift system, enabling them to reach some spectacular destinations, for instance Mont Fort, the highest point in the area where you can see the top of Europe, or meet up with your party for lunch in one of the many restaurants.

The alpine scenery is stunning and the area has many beautiful walks. Or, you can travel by bus or the efficient Swiss railway across the mountains to Chamonix for an unforgettable day trip.

There are lots of beautiful walks around the area or you can go by bus and train on the very efficient Swiss railways over the mountains to Chamonix in France an excellent day trip. Taking in the stunning alpine scenery an unforgettable journey.

Within the village you can visit the Sports Centre for Ice-Skating, Squash, Swimming, Jacuzzi or Sauna, you really don’t have time to go skiing!

The sheer size and beauty of Verbier makes this a resort you will wish to visit time and time again

What is a catered chalet holiday?

The British started chalet parties in Verbier over 25 years ago. These evolved from the 1920's type of house parties where groups of friends or families would book a chalet, with staff to look after them, so they could enjoy a weeks skiing without all the hard work.

Peak Ski has been selling catered chalet holidays for over 16 years. This particularly British type of holiday has proved very popular over the years and now many of our overseas friends are booking with us and enjoying the benefits of our specialised service in our chalets.

What should you expect when you book your holiday?

You can either book the whole chalet exclusively for your group or you can book part of the chalet and share with another group of like-minded guests.

The price covers the cost of the accommodation, cooked breakfast, afternoon tea, and 3 course evening meal with wine 6 nights (staff have one well-deserved day off). Also including is ski hosting and the services of the resort staff.

Each chalet is like a private home, and our enthusiastic staff are there to welcome you and act as your host/hostess's for the week.

They look after the chalet on behalf of your group; making sure it's clean and tidy they also prepare and serve your meals. Breakfast is served between 8.0am and 8.45am with fresh bread, yoghurts, cereals and porridge plus an additional a hot option. Afternoon tea is buffet style, you help yourself on your return to home baked cakes, and the first one back puts the kettle on. The evening meal is served at 8.00pm and if young children are in the chalet they are served at the earlier time of 6.30pm, enabling you to get them settled before enjoying your own evening meal in comfort.

Traditionally the evening meal is a major event of the day, where everyone can sit and relax over an excellent meal prepared and served by your host/hostess who will join you at table.

What should you expect from peak ski staff?

From the office you will receive accurate information regarding your holiday booking, with details of the accommodation, its position in resort, how to access your chalet and contact telephone numbers in resort. You will received details on travel arrangements, transfers and information on all the resorts facilities if required, such as ski school, kid's club and crèche facilities and how to book them.

Our resort staff will greet you on arrival, show you to your chalets explain how the chalet works, for example, what time to expect meals or anything else relevant to your chalet. They will organise your lift passes and assist with any equipment hire or ski school requirements you might have.

We offer ski hosting to groups of Intermediate skiers and above (this means guests who can comfortably ski down red runs or more). The idea is to show you around our stunning and extremely lovely and extensive resort enabling you to get the most out of this huge area. Groups are divided up so that you can ski either with a group of your own choice or standard. This includes pisted runs and conditions permitting some off piste Itinerary routes.

N.B. It is extremely important when taking out insurance that it includes off piste skiing.

Staff will advise you on arrival which days you can expect ski hosting and where to meet.

What do we expect from our guests?

We expect you to come to Verbier, enjoy one of the best resorts in the world, ski as much as you possibly can over as much of the resort as you are able. Enjoy the excellent food we serve in the chalets and have a wonderful and relaxing time.

To help us to help you get the most from your holiday, we ask you to take care in our properties and respect our staff, they are not servants; they are enthusiastic hard working, and professional, and on hand to help you enjoy your holiday.
