With its slopes situated at an average altitude of 2,000m, Verbier can offer a "snow guarantee" from December through April. If there is a shortage of natural snow, snow cannons take over. Major investments have been made in this field last winter through the automation of the snow cannons situated along the main axis between Attelas and Les Ruinettes. In addition the system has been extended to cover the area of La Chaux this winter, including the snow-park.
