• The perfect place to start planning a Verbier vacation is
the official Verbier tourism website verbier.ch/en/discover/
verbier-val-de-bagnes. Numerous self-serve and fully catered
chalets are available via British website chaletfinder.co.uk.
• The new W Verbier is situated directly across from the
Médran gondola. The upscale lodge pampers guests with 123
luxurious guest rooms and apartments, ski valets, an ultramodern tapas bar and the gastronomique Restaurant Arola,
featuring the Spanish-influenced cuisine of Michelin-starred
chef Sergio Arola, his first restaurant in Switzerland. The restaurant, opened in December 2013, features the same sleek
modern interiors and contemporary menu as his namesake restaurant in Paris, including items like carpaccio of langoustines,
oxtail ravioli and the signature patatas bravas Arola. For more
information, visit wverbier.com/en.
• Other restaurants around the village offer traditional moun-
tain cuisine, like raclette, rosti and fondue — a must for those
seeking the complete Swiss ski experience.
• For skiing the West and the Alps, Vail Resorts’ unrestricted
Epic Pass is a good deal. New for the 2014–15 season, the pass
is also good for five days of skiing at Japan’s Niseko United.
See snow.com/epic-pass/passes/epic-pass.aspx for details.
