OK, hotels aren't great and the public transport verges on awful, however the skiing and nightlife more than makes up for this. The skiing is, frankly, the best in Europe, kicks the ass out off Val de Sloane Square, Tignes, Courchavelle, Meribelle, Flaine, Avoriaz, Chamonix and everywhere else I’ve skied. The night life is also amazing, head to Farinet for apres ski then stagger to Mont Fort followed by the short crawl to Cas bar or Tara's (but don’t get there before 1:00), also wherever your staying your never have to far to walk home at night (except the down the mountain village of Le Chable, Last bus is at 8:50 and hitching down sucks). However this resort is not ideal for some: a) don't go if you can't ski, there is no real learner terrain apart from one learner slope in town and so the progression is very hard, if you do go get a top instructor, the best I’ve had are from European Snowsport b) don't go if your not keen on clubs pubs and hard skiing all day, i brought my parents over and all they did was complain that there were not enough jazz bars and that the nearest spa was over half an hour away so not suitable for the very young or over 65s, however this is undoubtedly the best time I’ve ever had skiing, Verbier is amazing!!
