A wonderful resort for experts, Verbier is renowned for its challenging slopes and is home to some of the most extensive and varied off-piste itineraries in the world, many of which require a guide. There is an adequate selection of blacks although more often than not, the red runs here are enough to satisfy any advanced skier. The ski area is also infamous for the thrilling mogul fields of Tortin.
However beginners and intermediates should not be put off by Verbier’s reputation as an expert's resort. There are good, sunny nursery slopes and intermediates will especially enjoy the gentle, long slopes in the quieter Savoleyres area just north-west of the village.
