The ski season in Verbier starts in early December and extends through into early May. Whilst the resort itself lies at 1500m, two gondola rides and you are at 2,700m with lots of high altitude skiing which is why there is skiing late into the season. Many of the slopes face West and South meaning that the resort does get plenty of sunshine and snow quality can sometimes suffer late in the season, although snow cover is largely unaffected as there is efficient snow-making equipment in place.

Experimental Chalet is new to Verbier this season and offers something completely different to the exclusive resort. With a fun retro but cosy style, Experimental Chalet has all the necessary comforts for a wonderful stay in this world-renowned resort. If you are looking for a more peaceful relaxing stay I would recommend choosing one of the rooms on the higher floors as the infamous Farm Club is located underneath the hotel.

The newest hotel in Verbier and something a little different. The Experimental Chalet has an art deco feel throughout, unlike the other hotels of this standard in resort. Working best for couples or groups as there is a buzzy atmosphere throughout, from the front door that opens straight into the sociable lobby and restaurant to the famous Kings Club downstairs!
