Season passes

Season passes can be bought for both the local Verbier area or for the whole of the 4 Valleys area. These passes always require a photo and there are discounts of around 15% on the public rates if purchased before the end of September 2019.

If you can't justify doing the whole season in Verbier, then there is also a half-season pass option which is valid from 1st February 2020. This pass can be bought for the full area or just the Verbier valley.

As of winter 2019/20, the Verbier season pass will also include the Bruson and Tzoumaz/Savolyeres ski areas, meaning that you can no longer purchase a specific season pass for either of these two areas.

Annual passes

If you are a regular visitor to Verbier or there year-round, then there is also an annual lift pass option that covers the full 4 Vallées area. It comes with a digital booklet of vouchers for free or discounted day passes for several neighbouring ski resorts, shopping discounts and free admission to various places.

There is also a variant of this pass specifically for children and young people up to the age of 24 years - the Mont4Card. This annual pass covers the whole of the 4 Vallées and comes with the same digital discount booklet as the adult pass. 

Both of these passes are valid from 2nd November 2019 until 25th October 2020 (depending on the snow conditions) and the same early pre-sale discounts apply as with the season passes. Visit the ski pass website for full details.

Pedestrian passes

A number of the ski lifts are accessible to pedestrians in winter, enabling non-skiers to enjoy the stunning scenery at altitude, from Mont Fort, Attelas, Mont-Gele and Savoleyres mountains. If you fancy some exercise whilst taking in the views, then there are well-marked walking trails between Les Ruinettes and La Chaux and also up to the Cabane Mont Fort from La Chaux. All pedestrian passes can be bought at the ski pass offices in resort.

Other passes

4Vallees Club Card 
This pass allows you to ski the 4 Vallées area at a reduced price all season. The more you ski the cheaper it becomes! The pass is valid for one year from the date of purchase and it works like a credit card with to cost of your day's skiing being debited from the card when you go through a turnstile at the bottom of a lift. You get a permanent discount of 10% on full and half day passes and once you've bought your card, you don't need to return to the cash desk. You can buy these passes either online or at one of the lift pass offices and you can also use them in the summer.  (or just Valais at an even cheaper rate). 

Valais Skicard 
This operates in a similar way to the 4 Vallées Club Card but is pre-paid as opposed to being charged after the fact. Valais Skicard holders charge their card with a desired amount of money, after which they’re granted direct access to the slopes without having to queue at the ticket counters. Acting as a cashier, the pass scanner automatically deducts the exact amount from your Valais SkiCard for the ticket corresponding to your age group and the time of day, as you go through the control gates. The card is non-transferable, and valid for 2 years. It is possible to extend the validity period of your points by simply recharging the card with a minimum of 100 CHF before the expiry date. Buy online.

Winter Sports Pass
A winter sports pass is also available for active non-skiers. As well as giving access to all the pedestrian lifts, you'll also get free entry to the sports centre and one round trip to the summit of Mont Fort. There are additional advantages that come with this pass, check with the cash desk when you purchase it for the latest offers and discounts.
