Curator’s statement

Although not much of a skier, the Swiss Alps were a bucket list item for my husband and I. We are typically summer travel people but the timing aligned that we would be taking our first international winter trip and I knew we had to find a way to get to Switzerland. Truly, the most beautiful place on Earth. From Apres Ski to actually skiing, there is something for everyone.

Things to do in Verbier, Switzerland

4 Valles Ski area is the largest ski spot in Switzerland and 3rd largest in Europe. Whether you are a beginner (like me!) or a veteran, there are so many good runs to take advantage of. We found a great balance of difficult and intermediate and loved finding new spots each day.

There are a lot of rental places but we choseSki Service for all rentals and you can purchase lift tickets through them as well. It’s only about 200 meters from the lift so it made pickup and drop off super easy.

Make sure you make time to see the top of Fort Mont but do know it is a journey and will take about an hour. It is absolutely worth it though.

Places to eat & drink in Verbier, Switzerland

Après Ski

Le Rouge: This was the place we went for dinner but upon arrival, après ski was wrapping up and it sure looked like a good time!

Ice Cube: Located on the mountain and my dream spot. I could hang out here all. day. long! Great DJ, good drinks, and snacks!

Carlsburg: Brewery chalet with incredible views. This is where we wrapped up each day!

Alp and Horn: More of an evening bar than après ski, but the vibe band and ambiance made it one of our favorite spots!

Where to Eat

Offshore Cafe and Juice Bar: Best spot for actual breakfast food. I got a yogurt bowl and my husband got the steak and eggs that came with a full 8 oz filet!

L’Ecurie: STAR OF THE SHOW! On our last night we almost canceled and that would have been a regret of a lifetime. The truffle pasta was truly one of the best meals I’ve ever had!

Fer à Cheval: Good spot for lunch before/after hitting the slopes. We tried the croûte au fromage which is a traditional Swiss meal. Basically a piece of toast covered in fondue. Who’s complaining? not me!!

Milk Bar: Cozy breakfast spot right in the middle of town. A lot of crepe options!

Le Rouge à Verbier: We chose here as a nicer dinner spot and it was incredible. I opted for the scallop risotto and Ryan got the steak. Both were incredible!

Le Shed: Fast and casual burger spot
