As one of the most famous ski resorts in Europe, Verbier is a relative newcomer to the ski scene - serious skiing only began here in the 1970s when it linked up with other local villages to create the nation's largest ski region - Les Quatres Vallées. Today Verbier counts among Europe's most famous resorts with over 400 km of downhill runs for enthusiasts of all levels, groomed daily for their pleasure; When the sun goes down, the legendary Verbier après ski takes off – its’ nightlife scene is almost as famous as the powder and it will keep you dancing well into the small hours.
