There are two spectacular skiing events held at Verbier: XSpeed and Verbier Ride. The XSpeed ski races where top speed skiers go from 3330m on the Mont Fort hitting speeds of 200km an hour are held in April. Verbier Ride, one of the top freeskiing competitions in the world, is held in the La Chaux snow park in January.
Not to be missed is the 10-kilometre-long toboggan run at La Tzoumaz with a drop of 848 metres - crash helmets required and children accompanied.
A must-do is a visit to the top of the Mont Fort with its unforgettable view so even if you are a beginner get up there before you leave and enjoy it. If you have a Four Valleys ski pass you will not have to pay extra for the cable car. For competent skiers there is the possibility of staying in the somewhat Spartan Cabane Mont Fort at 2457 metres. The only access is on skis. Julien, who has been staying there for years told us "Amazing, you're on top of the world, sunset and sun rise over the clouds, the world of the everyday are little specks of light far below. You should come and see for yourself".
