Verbier basks in the sun

Home / Uncategorized / Verbier basks in the sun
Yesterday morning early clouds cleared to beautiful blue skies in Verbier. The sunny weather continued today as temperatures climbed. Conditions on piste are great all over the resort – get out as early as you can to avoid the crowds.

However wet snow followed by more powder and now very warm conditions have made the snow pack very unstable. If you are tempted by the off piste take extra care. Make sure you are wearing a tranceiver and obey closed area signs. Tragically avalanches over the last few day have claimed lives in Bruson and on the main mountain in the Rock Garden and under the Jumbo lift of Mont Fort. Don’t be added to the statistics yourself!

Savoleyres remains less crowded than the main mountain with few lift queues – a great area for improving beginners and intermediates. The piste machines were seen out today preparing the 10km La Tzoumaz sledge run – we hope it may be opening during the next week.

The Bruson area is also worth considering for uncrowded slopes. Being north facing the powder is also likely to last longer there.

The forecast for the next couple of days is for sun and blue skies and daytime temperatures of around 10 C. Into next week there will be some cloud but no new snow is likely for the next 7 days. Enjoy the good weather while you can!!!
