Snow Reports

Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
durr, I forgot...
Or: Register
(to be a proper snow-head, all official-like!)

A snowHead
(Who has registered and logged into)
Location: snowHeadLand
1. Resort: Verbier
2. Country: Switzerland
3. Domain: The 4 Valleys
4. Author: Whitegold
5. Date: Mar 2007
6. Our Holiday: Small group of couples
7. Website:
8. Basics: Southwest Switzerland. Around 120 mins from Geneva
9. Lift System: The lift system is wholly inadequate. Lines are huge at peak-season and weekends. Scorecard = 3 / 10
10. The Terrain: The onpiste is rubbish. It is bland and disjointed. Only Mont Fort is worth mentioning. 6 / 10
11. The Snow: Poor snow down low, good up top. The town was green. 6 / 10
12. Off-piste: The liftserved offpiste is among the top 3 resorts in the world. Steep and deep everywhere. 10 / 10
13. The Resort: The town is very busy. The nightlife is always popular. Lots of chavs, however. 9 / 10
14. Food: There are some decent restaurants, but you have to search for them. 7 / 10
15. Accommodation: It is mostly chalets. Hotels are rare. 7 / 10
16. Costs: Verbier offers reasonable value, considering it is Switzerland's top resort. 8 / 10
17. Conclusion: Verbier has some of the best offpiste and afterski on the planet. This makes it a must-visit destination. But be prepared for huge liftlines, overcrowded pistes, tracked-out powder and gangs of pikeys singing soccer chants.

Total Scorecard = 56 / 80 (70%). For comparison, St Moritz gets 65 / 80 (81%).
