With 410 km of runs and 89 lifts covered by a single lift pass, Les 4 Vallées ski area is seemingly infinite. Its wealth of activities, reliable snow cover and sun-kissed slopes make it an exceptional destination in more ways than one! Culminating at the top of the Mont-Fort glacier (3,330 m), the ski area is a paradise for all winter sports enthusiasts, whether expert or beginner. Open from November until the end of April, it links the resorts of Verbier, La Tzoumaz and Bruson, as well as Nendaz, Veysonnaz and Thyon.

From the Moulins beginners’ run to the top of the Mont-Fort glacier, the attractions of this vast ski area are simply waiting to be discovered. With classic runs such as Chassoure, Tortin and Mont-Gelé for freeriders and experienced skiers, and a variety of slopes throughout the resort for intermediates.

Not forgetting the La Chaux snowpark for freestylers! An opportunity for experts and beginners alike to test their skill and imagination on freestyle lines, boxes and rails.
