From the nursery slopes of Les Esserts to the sun-drenched beginner area of La Chaux, and from the mellow pistes of the Lac des Vaux to the wide, cruising boulevards of the Attelas and the Combes, Verbier has everything to please the beginner and intermediate crowds.
Add to that the Verbier snowpark and challenging ski itineraries of Chassoure-Tortin and of the Mont Gelé, and it becomes clear that the Verbier ski area has something for everyone (see the piste maps).
Boasting three nursery slopes/beginner areas in the resort itself, the Verbier ski area also offers great beginner terrain up at La Chaux, accessible from Médran via the La Chaux Express Combi-Mix lift. Serviced by a high-speed detachable quad as well as a triple chair, the Lac des Vaux area is perfect for intermediate skiers looking for easy runs. What more, thanks to its northern orientation, this little area is usually blessed with great snow conditions.
Those seeking long uninterrupted “boulevards” on which to cruise down need to look no further than the Attelas 2 & 3 and the Combe 1 & 2 pistes. These runs are serviced for the most part by state of the art lifts such as the Funispace, the Les Attelas (a 6 man, high-speed detachable bubble chairlift) as well as the La Chaux Express (6-man chairs and 8-person gondolas alternating on the same line) ensuring that lift queues are kept to a minimum even on the busiest days.
