The nightlife is as legendary as the skiing and can be as lively or sophisticated as you wish. An abundance of top quality restaurants, bars and shops are all conveniently located within easy walking distance of many of our chalets. Alternatively you can sample the lively après-ski bars in your ski boots and finish the evening feasting on our delicious food in the chalet.

Welcome to our weekly update, where once a week we update you on the latest snow conditions, forecasts, open lifts and events in resort for the coming weeks.

This season we’re proud to be able to support Yann and Elisabeth, local young skiers making a name for themselves on the freeride scene.  I think we’re all a bit jealous it’s not us, but we’re living vicariously through them and loving the amazing videos they’re sending us.  We hope you enjoy them too!

Below is a little detail on each of them, also please check out their video updates underneath showing not only what awesome skiers they are but also some of the incredible skiing possible in Verbier.

Elisabeth Gerritzen

blog-

I’m Elisabeth, an 18 years old freeskier. I’ve been skiing ever since I was able to stand. I started with alpine racing, but quickly switched to freeriding, as I love powder, steep terrain and hucking cliffs. I’m currently in my last year of high school, and work part-time at the Ecole Suisse de Ski as an instructor. I love Verbier, it is home to me and its mountains have shaped me into the skier that I am today.

My name’s Yann, I’m 20 years old and began to ski as soon as I could. My father, who’s a mountain guide, gave me his passion for mountains and skiing.
