Live it up in the heart of the Swiss Alps at W Verbier.
Perched 1,500 meters above sea level in the pulsating heart of Verbier, Valais, our destination hotel serves up ample sunshine, extraordinary mountain views, and an all-access pass to the village’s spectacular slopes, vibrant culture, and glamorous nightlife.
Explore with ease from our prime location at the end of the Rue de Médran, near the celebrated Place Blanche’s designer boutiques and a short stroll from Place Centrale, home to shops, restaurants, and more.
We’re also just steps from the Médran Gondola, which during the winter season (mid-November to late-April) provides speedy transport to snow-frosted peaks. Revel in the surrounding Les 4 Vallées’ 92 lifts and 412 kilometers of ski and snowboard pistes, with 43% marked as blue, 29% as red, and 28% as black. Up the ante with freestyle and off-piste runs, ski tours, heli-skiing adventures, or box and rail stunts at Snowpark La Chaux. The annual Freeride World Tour, which draws the top skiers and snowboarders from around the world, serves up ample inspiration.
Explore beyond the lifts on over 155 kilometers of mountain trails, ideal for everything from cross-country skiing to snowshoeing to sledging. You can further mix it up via sleigh rides with husky dogs, winter paragliding, and ice climbing. Thaw out afterward at a thermal spa.
Action also reigns in the summer, when events, such as the yearly Verbier Festival featuring classical music, electrify the village. On the slopes, everything from bungee jumping and hiking to rock climbing at the Val de Bagnes and biking at the Verbier BikePark vie for top billing. Two local 18-hole golf courses, including Parcours Les Esserts, offer additional scenic activities while the 3D Residency and Sculpture Park and Sentier des Sculptures remix nature with culture.
Venture outside Verbier for historical insight from the Fondation Pierre Gianadda and the Olympic Museum in Laussanne. Add to your excursion with a hike to Les Toules, a stunning reservoir in Bourg-Saint-Pierre, or the dam surrounding Lac de Mauvoisin. At 1,800 meters, it is the eighth highest dam in the world.
Even higher up at 2,469 meters, the Great St-Bernard Hospice, a hostel operated by monks, debuts fabulous panoramas. Meanwhile the Alpine Botanical Garden, overlooking Lake Champex and the snowcapped peaks of Les Combins, showcases 6,000 square meters of gardens housing 3,000 plant species.
