Were in Verbier V 15 this year.
Looks like the place was cruel, there was very easy accessible offpiste, generally everywhere, and usually very long, for example, mont-fort down to the tortine is 1300 fall height meters. The boring is just as with all other resorts, they get up quite quickly, but because we were there late in the season, we could still find a nice, untouched, but flattering offpiste in the Savoleyre area the following day. Away from Veysonnaz and Thyon, you have good pistoling, but nothing for us who like to go offpiste.

The disadvantage as I see it is that they did not plan the location of the lifts spec well, the jumbolift could, for example, lie further than it did, there would not have been as much transport at the end etc.

Otherwise I thought it was cheap there, pint of beer 3 chf = 18 kr.
Gulaschsoppa type 45 kr in the hill, maybe maybe around 20 kr. Oh, that's good, much more expensive than that.
The Mont-Fort Pub does not have to be missed, do not speculate on Tuesdays, then Eagles!

A place like Verbier is, so Swedish, as well.

The village is pretty big, the food pretty good, the people are pretty nice and the prices are right. It's easy to go through the system and easily find the right, really good offpiste.

Were there under V.5 and it had not been snowing for quite some time. We solved it by hiring a guide and dropping down the hillside back to late skinny with leather.

Has it not been snowing for a long time and is good weather, rent a couple of ski slopes with hides and go down from the back of the hill, where there are thousands of possibilities. Otherwise, recommending a Guide called Thomas, no fan will not remember his name in last name, but he is relatively well-known in the village. A little old and a joke on finding good skiing.

If you are lucky enough to meet a snowfall then there are huge opportunities with offpiste from the lifts. Many nice rocks and colouirs. Be careful, however, for the narrow ones, such as Attelas colouirs directly after snowfall, many accidents there.

If it were snowing for a whole week, there's really cool forest skiing away for Thyon. Large larch trees with a lot of space, however, are large parts of the ridge there nature conservation area (beware of barbed wire, the Swedes are serious)

A yard that is quite sick is the forest yard under the cabin. Nendaz, usually there for as long as it is in a children's area, it is steep, sparse and with little little rocks if you wish.

The atmosphere is good, the snow is usually stable and you dive a snowfall, you are, take me fan, paradise. Really ballt place!

Far from the best place in the Alps. Long lifts, many transport distances, short slopes. Good offpiste, but it is so popular that the season there, where the powder is often harvested. But if you are comfortable to be surrounded by Swedes on good and bad, this is an option.

A peculiar place, however, has not been there than this year, will be your next weekend and then I'll be there most of the Christmas promise and probably every crochet in the future. I prefer to walk and thus find the best. Guides curl it over. Heard that there were those who complained about prices and standards in some places. I have lived in Switzerland now for the last four years, and can compare this superlest place with ski resorts like Åre and Lindvallen. When I lived in Sweden, I thought it was expensive to ski over most especially just about a week a year. To me below, skiing is a matter of course, and for those complaining about prices, it's true that it costs transport there, but see what the cost gives you. I have been to Chamonix, Portes de Soleil, Diablerets, Saas Fee, Zermatt but I really have to like Verbier. A minus is the number of tourists coming, but if you have other interests than jibbing and snow plowing, then it does not affect a dew. It's only an early upturn, so you get to the first lifts. //SHOULDER

I have been there several seasons now and Easter 2004 was absolutely the best! In most cases it's usually sloppy, warm and radiant sun. Now it was raining sun but -5 degrees and all week and sneeze every day! even the big puckers down to the tortine were clenched with knees to the middle of the pudding snow !!! it was absolutely amazing!

Verbier is in my eyes the sum of what you want out of
a ski resort. It is a nice town with a good size (not
like the French, including Charmonix where you can go,
bus, car and walk constantly). Restaurant and entertainment provides
I expect that as often as in Switzerland
is not state of the art, but the quality is always there!
The skiing is very good. Have heard a complaint
Some points on the ride, but can only say that one
Must try before you can complain. Probably it is
amateurs who did not get the right one
rides that Verbier has to offer. Just shut down
Mont-Fort back or Mont-Gelé so you know what I'm
talking about. A very big advantage with Verbier is close proximity to
off-piste from the lifts. It is necessary to say not heliopter
alternatively two hours walk up, to get one
really long and good pillow case. By the way, I just have to
make an entry on all this chess about the prices. You like
think restaurants are too expensive, accommodation costly,
lift passes as well as nightclubs too snoby. To you I can
recommend the Vemdalen. Certainly a lot cheaper,
worse and bonniger!

A truly nice ski resort with high standards of lifts and maintenance !!! Maybe that's why it's not the cheapest "alphaket" iofs .... Had a bad luck when I was there and managed to dug into a fat fog that made the sight relatively poor. Fortunately, it also snowed significantly, which made us find some really nice sneakers prone to the bad sight. I was only there one day, on a temporary visit from Chamonix where I seasoned 04. Would like to go back and explore the resort in better weather and test offpiste opportunities a little more. It was not a position for it when the sight was so bad .....

I have been to Verbier four times and it belongs to the exceptions when I went to the Alps for thirty years and seen most but rarely visited the same place more than once. Always the same week (9) in Verbier and it has usually been good weather with very varied skiing. All the time there have been pillows that you can not get too much of. If you want long and at the same time very steep black pistes you can go to another place that I do not know where it is located. There is a piste for all tastes only one knows where to find it in the four valleys. Off piste there is just how much you want to climb and exert a little effort. It's worth it here. The powder has never exhausted me.
When I cooked my own food and only used the pub for "ready-made" liquid food, it is not more expensive here than any other punch in the Alps.

The trick with the verpan is to make the season :)
Get a cool job and make sure you get a work permit. Then it's just jumping into the game ... With the work permit it's possible to make the whole stay a bit cheaper and often you get a good job at work.
As for the ride, I can only ask myself the person who said there was little competition for the powder. To get a first ride in the snow, apply: first in the lift queue. There is nothing else and yet it can be difficult to find untrained. Then it's a little bit about where to look for. The village is nice and as a seasoning you get a good idea of ​​what works and does not work. Aftershine on the pub is nice and then if you want to clear you can go to the farinet, always live bands (take in the weeks when yellowmike plays ...)
