A lot of snow
too many people on slops, poor service during high season
Visited 19th of December-30th of December 2012.
Accomodation booked 3month in advance in new hotel 4* "La Cordée des Alpes" with around 800 Sfr per night rate.On arrival found out the hotel still under construction, Stayed 1 night in ugly smelly room, moved to other hotel next day. "La Cordée des Alpes" charged me 4300sfr for that 1night in bomb shell room. My advice :Stay a way from these crooks at least til they finish building their hut.
General impression: Poor service during high season, too much visitors,so why to care, for example, in mountain restourant "Olimpique" they would ask you to leave, as soon as as you finished your meal, "becouse other people waiting for your table"
Skiing much better in Zermatt, night life and fun much better in St.Moriz.
Verbier -never again
