Since it began operating in the 1950s, Verbier has become one of the most popular ski resorts in the Alps. Frequently referred to as a ‘winter playground for the rich and famous’, this glamorous region provides an escape for many of the world’s elite.
While Verbier is synonymous with all things luxury and exclusivity, the ski resort is also fantastically family-friendly. With excellent skiing, accommodation, shopping, nightlife, spa and fitness facilities, there’s guaranteed to be something that appeals to all members of your family.
Whether you have young children who want to try skiing for the first time, teenagers who want to immerse in the cool and glam vibe, young adults looking to experience the resort’s exclusive nightlife, or whether you just fancy relaxing at one of its luxury spas, Verbier has it all.
So, now we’ve convinced you to book a luxury family ski holiday in Verbier for you and your family, we’d like to give you some tips on how to plan! Below, we have put together a guide on those all important factors to take into consideration when planning a family ski holiday. We hope it helps!
If you have young children, you will most likely be looking to book your ski holiday in Verbier during out-of-school dates – Christmas, New Year, February half term and Easter being the most popular (and expensive) choices – that is why it is essential that you book in advance.
Low season weeks include January, March and April (except for Easter), where accommodation and travel prices are expected to see reductions. Another plus side to booking your holiday during these months is that it stays warmer and lighter for longer – perfect conditions for children to play!

First, consider whether you need to hire ski equipment and gear, as well as ski passes. We can help by recommending the best places to obtain these. You may also want to think about pre-booking ski lessons and hire before your ski holiday. Contact us for more information regarding this.
Finding the right ski instructor can seem like a mammoth task. For example, many children will require ski schooling that is taught in their mother tongue – we can help you find the best ski instructors who are highly knowledgeable and fluent in English. It also helps if children learn together, or at least with people of a similar age and nationality in the class.
Whether you are looking for a nursery ski school for young children experiencing their first time on the slopes, a ski instructor to help refine your teenager’s skills or adult lessons for yourself, there are plenty of great options available. We can help you find the best ski schools available – simply get in touch for more information.
Consider whether you will require childcare at any point during your stay. Perhaps you would like to have a romantic meal out with your partner one evening? Or maybe you would like to show off your seasoned ski skills on the high slopes without the children? We work with some of the most incredible childcare specialists – get in touch to find out more about our services.
Not all children will have been bitten bug the skiing bug, but that’s not a problem! There is plenty to do in Verbier. Why not try your hand at indoor rock climbing, ice trekking, tobogganing, or ice-skating? Go on a magical sleigh ride, visit the Verbier cinema or take a tour to the surrounding towns and villages. There is also the fantastic indoor water park, Aquariaz if you fancy a fun dip.
There are mountain restaurants and cafes catering to all ages and needs, bars and nightlife for older children looking to party in some of the world’s most exclusive locations, spa and wellbeing facilities for all your relaxation needs.
