Verbier opens this weekend
Verbier will be the first resort in Suisse-Romande (French-speaking Switzerland) to open… but just for weekends for now.
Daily opening is due to start later this month, snow permitting.
In recent days the resort has received 50-60cm of fresh white stuff, and a handful of pistes are in good skiable condition.
The following lifts will be open:
Gondola Le Chable-Verbier, 8.40am-4.45pm
Gondola lift Verbier-Les Ruinettes, 8.40am-4.15pm.
Lac des Vaux (1 chairlift and ski trail), 9.15am-4.15pm.
The Olympic restaurant at the Attelas will also be open.
The last skiing in Verbier took place during July when – thanks to excellent snow conditions then – the resort opened for a weekend of summer skiing for the first time in 25 years, as we reported here.
