    Méribel’s landscape changes with each turn at Europe’s largest skiing resort, Les 3 Vallées. Beginners may hone their skills by gliding over green or blue routes, such as Le Sentier des Crêtes, which runs along the Tougnète ski lift at high altitude…

    The Benefits of Verbier for Beginners

    Verbier’s huge ski region is separated into two lists: Médran and Savoleyres. The most family-friendly slopes are situated on the Savoleyres side, particularly the Funpark for youngsters and the toboggan slope, which allows you to go down nearly 700 metres!

    While the kids practice on their snowploughs, the experts may push their boundaries on the Médran side. Everyone agrees that the high-altitude scenery are spectacular, regardless of their point of view.

    If this is your first-time skiing, try one of the resort’s conveyor belts for a cautious start. When you gain confidence, proceed to ‘Verbier Station’, which contains lifts such as Les Esserts, Les Moulins, and Le Rouge, or follow the blue run up the ridge to the top of Savoleyres.

    To refine your technique or introduce your children to the delights of skiing, contact our luxury concierge to schedule one of the numerous classes given by the École Suisse de Ski in Verbier, or, for faster results, hire one of our private teachers.

    After skiing, take the whole family to Verbier’s open-air trampoline park, where your kids can burn off energy by jumping in a harness.

    Then, meander around till nightfall to discover the resort’s various bars, restaurants, and stores while being comforted by the gorgeous surroundings.

    Are you in the mood to party? Le Rouge is the place to go for a memorable après-ski experience. Head to the upper level of the restaurant to dance to the rhythms of the region’s greatest DJs while warming up with a drink of mulled wine. For a more intimate setting with your family, gather in the living room of your luxury chalet in Verbier and share stories from the day in front of a raging fire.
