Verbier is royalty amongst Alpine ski resorts. A long time favourite for wealthy and famous European skiers, its vast ski areas and trails cater to all level, the off-piste trails - in particular – being the stuff of legend.
It has a near-perfect location in a southwest-facing bowl facing bowl, perched high up on a mountainside at an altitude of 1500m. High enough to ensure the crunch of fresh powder greets your face and the crisp, clear air, balanced against the warming sun on your face.
In recent years a smattering of new ultra high-end chalets has help keep Verbier at the top of the luxury ski resorts in the Alps. These include Richard Branson’s opulent The Lodge and the minimalist Hotel Nevai, both of which keep with traditional, wooden uniformity of Verbier’s architecture. You can speak to our ski specialists about staying at either of these properties, as well as the remaining crème de la crème of Verbier chalets. Lightfoot’s ski specialists will also arrange activities like heli-skiing, husky sledging and paragliding upon request.
Chic Verbier is also a top all-rounder with high-grade skiing available for visitors of all levels of experience across its massive 4 Valleys ski area. Dining is a premium experience with a wide choice of upmarket Swiss and Italian restaurants, while legendary venues like the Coco Club ensure the après-ski appeals continues to our inner bon vivant.
Lightfoot Travel’s Ski Designers handpick all luxury chalets and create unique luxury ski holidays to Verbier, tailored to your exact needs.
