Veysonnaz is probably one of the most attractive of the 4 Valleys ski resorts. It is ideal for families who want to ski or snowboard in Switzerland, or for people who simply want a quieter holiday.
Part of Switzerland's Valais ski area, Veysonnaz ski resort offers access to Mont-Fort, the highest peak of the Four Valleys at 3,300m. Combined, the resorts in this area offer over 412 km of piste. Reached by a winding 13km road from Sion, Veysonnaz is used as a training base by the Swiss national ski team. Access from the airport is easy as the road network is excellent.
On the slopes
Part of the Valais circuit, Veysonnaz ski resort can access 412km of slopes - enough to keep the Swiss ski team happy when they train here. There is a new eight-person gondola to whisk you up to the mid-station, and you can also access Veysonnaz' own ski area from a second base area 3km away by road at Mayen-de-L'Ours. There's a bus service to connect the two areas. So from the guaranteed snow to the off piste conditions - this is certainly one to consider.
If you ski Veysonnaz you are also in the Swiss ski region of Valais.
Off the slopes
After a days skiing, après-ski in Veysonnaz is good - if a little quieter than it's neighbour Verbier. From informal cafés through to livelier bars, there's a good range if you want it. For non-skiers there are also a good range of activities - so you won't be bored if you're off the slopes - especially when you can bus it to Verbier or Nendaz too.
