Verbier, Switzerland /When is the best time to visit Verbier, Switzerland

This is very much a matter of personal preference. Christmas and New Year are very popular; Christmas in the snow is incredibly magical and the resort pulls out all of the stops for New Year’s Eve, with a bar and DJ in the central square from 4pm, a live concert at 10.30pm and fireworks at midnight. The weather can be very cold in January which makes for excellent snow conditions and a lot of people are returning to work and school making the slopes quiet. School holidays in February are very busy, so we recommend that you book in advance if you wish to travel in these dates. The sun begins to shine in March meaning longer days and April is the snowiest month of the season. In spring and summer, the resort offers an array of outdoor activities making it a perfect choice for any adrenaline junkie.

Verbier, Switzerland /Reviews

In my experience, a spring ski break has always been a more relaxed affair in comparison to the adrenalin-pumping, black-run-conquering, powder-hunting thrills of a peak-season snow escapade. Instead, eking out the last few runs from the spring snow and long, languid slope-side lunches in the alpine sun are the key ingredients of an end of season mountain holiday. With snow-sure high altitude skiing around the Mont Fort glacier, a sunny mountain aspect and lift-served off-piste, Verbier was an obvious choice for some late season skiing.... more
