With 36 percent of Verbier’s terrain marked as blue, which is beginner terrain in Europe, new skiers and snowboarders have many excellent options. First-time skiers and snowboarders have a well-placed “learn to ski” zone right in the middle of Verbier’s village and several well-situated learning areas at the base of the mountain between Medran and Savoleyres. Because the village of Verbier sits at 1,500 meters (almost 5,000 feet), beginners can enjoy superb snow conditions even at the base of the mountain.
Once new skiers and riders have mastered their skills and are ready to explore more of the mountain, Verbier offers nearly limitless terrain possibilities—especially when combining Verbier’s trails with the interconnected 412 miles of skiing to be had at St. Bernard the 4 Vallees ski resorts. For the best views and snow, more experienced blue skiers and snowboarders should head up to La Chaux ski area.
