Stayed in Verbier during mid-Mar 2008. The town is busy and buzzy. The nightlife is good but downmarket. The slopes were green down low but white up top. The on-piste skiing is surprisingly average and unchallenging. In contrast, the off-piste is outstanding. Steeps, couloirs and huge moguls can be found around every corner. The lift system is wholly inadequate for such a famous resort. Huge lines and long waits were commonplace during weekends and peak times. In summary, Verbier comes highly recommended. It has some of the best lift-served skiing on the planet. Just avoid the crowds during weekends and public holidays.
