A Cheesy / Snowy end to September

Home / Snow Report - Verbier / A Cheesy / Snowy end to September

September is always a quiet month in Verbier. With Summer behind us and the winter a few months away the resort is caught slightly in limbo. However, of one thing is certain, the annual cheese festival in Le Chable will go ahead and it will be fun!

Bagnes Capital de Raclette less formally known as “Cheesemas” was on this weekend. The festival celebrates the Val de Bagnes most famous produce in the way that the Swiss do it best; a massive street festival going on late into the night. With hundreds of stalls selling local produce its difficult not to consume your weight in raclette!

The ES team were there to enjoy the festivities which looked a little like this!

Umpa Rock…. the new Rock n Roll

Oh what fun!

More surprisingly in September, was the arrival of some early season snow! We woke up on Thursday morning to a very cool +3*C and a covering of snow above 2000 metres. Good signs for this season? We hope so….
