The ski area offers some of Europe’s most challenging ski and boarding terrain. The neighboring resorts of Veysonnaz, Nendaz and Thyon form the massive area that is known as 4 Vallées. There are 95 lifts that link to offer 412 km of piste skiing, and boundless areas of off-piste. At 3330m, the Mont-Fort is a spectacular sight, with a steep descent that is not for the faint hearted.
The off-piste is considered some of the best in the world and the heli-skiing some of the most accessible in Europe.
Try heli-skiing 2 days after fresh snowfall; the dream day of fresh tracks skiing.
Check the diary of events when deciding when to visit – there are some great incentives to be in here for certain weekends. Free-ride ski competitions and celebrity DJs add to the lively atmosphere.
To get the best from this resort, an off-piste guide is strongly recommended.
Whilst not known for its choice of Michelin starred food, there has been a move towards more contemporary dining. Plenty of Swiss fayre, with Fondue, Raclette and Potence are available in many traditional eateries.
Old school chintz at The Farm (love it or hate it, it’s been there since champagne and skiing became firm friends). New school bling at the Public Club.
And the Farinet, followed by the Casbah for a ‘wheels off’ night out.
