Just a few kilometres north of Chamonix, along the spectacular Col de Montets mountain pass, is the Swiss border.
A twisting road with jaw-dropping views on either side takes you to the world famous resort of Verbier, destination of choice for the Royal family and A-list celebrities.
Verbier is a massive ski resort with a huge network of pistes, if you have chosen to buy the Mont Blanc Unlimited lift pass you can ski and snowboard here at no extra charge, just remember to validate your lift pass before you get on the cable car.
If you are here for the sightseeing then you will find no shortage of designer shops, exclusive boutiques, galleries, bars and restaurants. Verbier is great for seeing how the other half live!
Mountain Lifestyle offers a weekly bus service to Verbier, via our partner company Haute Transfer. Buses run every Wednesday for 35€ return, picking you up from the door of your accommodation. There are a number of departures each day, so you can book a time that suits you. Bookings must be made a day in advance, either send us an email, call us on +33(0)4 86 68 87 16 or simply pop into the Mountain Lifestyle office in Chamonix Sud any weekday between 9am and 6pm.
Handy hints from Mountain Lifestyle
- Not everywhere accepts Euros, so remember to take your bank card. If you do pay in cash, you are likely to get a bad exchange rate and be given change in Swiss francs.
- Don't forget your passport! It's unlikely that you'll be asked to show it at the border but better safe than sorry...
