The Winter As January comes to a close, we can reflect on what has been a fantastic two months of Winter. The Christmas and new years period during December was superb, and with campers coming from all over the world the nix of nationalities has ever been so diverse.
December was a little slow in the resort in terms of snowfall, but January saw a huge amount of snow, pistes are in superb condition, Verbier the jewel in the crown of the 4 Valleys has access to over 450km of pistes and we endeavor to vary the slopes the campers ski and snowboard each day.
Looking ahead February sees a huge amount of individuals coming and combined with our range of International Schools provides a great environment to meet new friends and create lifelong friendships and memories.
I wish you all a fantastic month ahead.

A fundamental aspect to the success
of the camp is our staff
A fundamental aspect to the success of the camp is our staff, and after their two week training period in November, have been focusing all their attention to the progression on slopes, safety of the students and of course their enjoyment during après ski and evening activities.
Our team this year reflect the diversity of the campers and we have staff from all corners of the globe and we are proud of achievement.
Our winter camps continue until mid April and then on to Spring Camps until the end of May, with our Summer Camps starting this year on the 4th June.
Despite Verbier’s reputation as a leading ski resort in the winter, the summer is packed with festivals, mountain sports and visitors from all over the world. Each weekend brings a new crowd starting the summer with the Verbier Festival, a prestigious Classical Music Festival, attended by the most esteemed musicians from around the world, to the splendid display of athleticism offered in the Jumping International de Verbier Equestrian events towards the end of August.
And remember you can enroll campers every Saturday from the 1st December to the end of August, for up to a month, Winter Spring or Summer! So really you don’t need to send campers to any other camp!
