Day 5: 4 valley – Veysonnaz / Verbier skiing
At the centre of the Four Valleys, one of the largest ski areas in Europe and Switzerland, Verbier has everything a top-class winter sports resort should have. The chalet-style village perches atop a sunwashed plateau and provides views of the majestic mountain peaks. It’s a veritable eldorado for any snowsport fan, and the skiing area stretches from 1,500 to 3,330m. Thanks to the height and fine snow conditions, 93 lifts let you access 412 km of runs. Mont-Fort or Mont-Gelé and other legendary routes make every ski ace drool.

Voted as Switzerlands number 1 ski resort for 2019! Crans-Montana ski area is almost entirely south-facing with one of the best 360 degree panoramic views in the Alps – from Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn.
The ski area stretches from the Glacier Plaine Morte at 3,000m down to village level at 1,500m – is high enough to retain good snow conditions. With the majority of Crans-Montana’s guests busy devoting their time to other activities, the ski slopes are not overcrowded.
