So what do you know about Switzerland? Watches, Toblerone bars, banking, neutrality, and cheese with holes in it. Well let me tell ya buddie. Switzerland is also widely known for its PRIME TIME skiing! I mean lets get some stats out on the table here. This small European country of 8 million people have produced 167 medals in the winter Olympics since its inception. 116 of those medals come from Skiing (some snowboarding too…if you’re into that kind of thing). To put it into perspective, the United States has managed to rack up 124 medals in the same disciplines, with a whopping 332 milli people. It doesn’t take a statistician, mathematician, or a sports analyst to connect the dots here… Swiss people know how to freaking SKI!!!!! Or snowboard…
OK so now we got the that out of the way. Lets get down to brass tax and talk about Verbier Ski area. Verbier is part of the 4 Valleys Ski Area, which fun fact, is the largest ski area in Switzerland. The 4 valleys ski area is composed of (6) ski areas (Verbier, Nendaz, Veysonnaz, La Tzoumaz, Thyon/Les Collons and Bruson). Verbier itself consists of over 412km of skiable terrain/runs, 94 established runs, and a whooping total of 82 lifts.
A standard lift pass for Verbier (64 CHF) gets you access to all of the above! If you want to fully send it and take full advantage of everything the 4 Valleys have to offer you can do so and purchase the full pass (74 CHF) and get access to all of the resorts.
Now I don't really know what your aptitude for ski resort knowledge is, but those numbers above are pretty IN-SANE. This place is top notch world class skiing. If you want to go full nerd and learn everything there is to know about this place Here is a link to their official website.
Some other fun things that we are going to do on this trip to shake things up, going to do nightly voting for prizes. Also going to give unlimited access to my personal Shot-Ski. So get ready for some high quality Skiing and even higher quality Après Skiing.
