Full review

Went skiing in Verbier from the 26-29th of December. Had two blue bird powder days with fantastic conditions. Powder was a bit heavy but with all terrain skis the off-piste was doable. Generally had quick lift lines but was surprised by the lack of lifts in certain areas where it seemed obvious to have them. The groomed trails were great and saw almost no evidence of ice. The terrain here is the best I have ever skied and the conditions allowing you to see over a vast expanse of the alps made for an unbelievable experience. The nightlife and town of Verbier lived up to the hype as well. But be prepared to shell out money for apres-ski. It is after all Verbier... in Switzerland.
