Verbier is now experiencing Spring in full swing! The more enthusiastic skiers and snowboarders among us are welcoming the warmer season with mixed feelings. On the one hand, the days are getting warmer, the night longer and the snow is now soft and carvable. But, Spring also signifies the end of the busy, exciting winter ski season. Here, we discuss the benefits of planning a spring holiday in Verbier.
While some may find this a slightly melancholic – it’s a long, painful wait until the next winter ski season – spending springtime in a ski resort in incredibly underrated. There’s plenty of colour on the mountains and in the meadows, clear blue sunny skies, and the chocolate box Verbier chalets look beautiful among the surrounding alpine countryside.
There’s much to be excited about, even in Spring. Why? Because Verbier is a world-class resort ALL YEAR ROUND. Here, Luxury Rentals Verbier is going to explain exactly why this is the case.
Verbier is a safe bet for skiing in Spring, with its extensive snow-sure pistes and snow-making capabilities, you are guaranteed to have great fun on the slopes.
The skiing here is second-to-none, even at a lower altitude of 1,500 m. However, for a more challenging experience on the white stuff, you could always head to the heights of Mont Fort, where you will also be in view of Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn.
The sophistication and elegance of Verbier do not stop just because Spring has arrived. Verbier is perhaps best known for being the ‘playground of the rich and famous’ – attracting a ‘wealth’ of royalty, celebrities and entrepreneurs.
And with 400 km of piste runs, and some of the best ski lifts offering off-piste experiences in the Alps, we can see why it’s so popular. In addition, the resort is south-facing, meaning it receives day-long sunshine.
What better way to enjoy the new green vegetation on offer from Spring, than by tucking into some tasty Verbier Swiss cuisine? After a long day on the slopes, we can think of nothing better than heading out for a hearty meal with the mountains and countryside as a scenic backdrop.
In addition, you may even find the weather is warm enough to warrant a BBQ back at your luxury Verbier chalet – enjoy the comforts of home but in a gorgeous alpine setting.
We think Swiss cuisine in just too darn tasty – so much so, we actually wrote a blog post about it last month!. Check it out here.
The hustle bustle of the winter ski season is over, which means the slopes are reasonably quiet. This gives you ample time to try out your skills without the rush of people careering down the mountain.
You may also find that the bars, restaurants and cafes are slightly quieter – meaning you can enjoy your drinks and food in peace. In addition, the apres ski is still booming during the summer months, and there is plenty to do after a long day on the slopes.
