When to go
Verbier is a year-round resort so it’s a good option of summer holidays, too. It also claims to be Switzerland’s sunniest resort and in all the time we’ve spent there the sun has shone.
PlanesGeneva airport is a little under two hours away by car (www.gva.ch). Swiss Airlines from City airport is our favourite option. If you have your own plane – or know someone that does – you can land at Sion about 30 minutes away.
TrainsGetting to Verbier by train is perfectly possible. The journey to the resort takes three hours from Geneva airport and the nearest station is in Le Châble down in the valley. You can make the transfer to the resort by cable car which takes you up to the main ski lift station.
AutomobilesFrom Geneva take the motorway via Lausanne and Monteux to Martigny. Don’t be tempted to choose the cheaper hire cars on the French side of Geneva Airport as these don’t have the permits for the Swiss motorways. From Martigny take the E27 and follow directions to Verbier.
