Verbier is a resort town in the eastern part of the Swiss canton of Valais near Martigny. It has cable car access to a huge network of ski trails which are perfectly suited for intermediate and advanced skiers. There are also a couple of bunny slopes in town, as well as a huge amount of infrastructure for skiing and after skiing.
In the summer Verbier, like many mountain villages, becomes a base for the true Swiss national sport of hiking.
There is no direct train service to Verbier. Passengers coming from Geneva will need to take a train to Martigny and then change trains to take the “St. Bernard Express” to Le Châble, the Verbier base station. From there passengers can take the cable car or the Postal Bus to get up to Verbier.
Verbier is just off the A9 Motorway and National Road 21 (European Road: E27), about 1.5 hours from Geneva. It is advised to have a car that can travel up steep gradients and that is equipped with snow tires, if visiting in the winter. There is also a regular bus service from Geneva Airport to Verbier offered by Alpybus. The journey takes 2 hours and runs only during the winter season from December through April. Private transfers are available in the summer.
Verbier village is small enough to get pretty much everywhere on foot, even in ski boots. A free bus runs around the village until early evening. There is a cable car service between Verbier and Le Chable which runs from 08:30 until 18:30, and a bus which runs later, so you will want to make note of the bus schedule if your hotel is in Le Chable.
