Summer in Verbier
What happens when the snow melts? Not everybody realises just how much the mountains have to offer in the Summer…
The Swiss Alps don’t lose any of their majesty when winter leaves us and the snow melts, which is when you’ll discover that there’s much more to Verbier than skiing.
Summer is a magical time, the fresh air is exhilarating, flowers are in full bloom, bees and birds sing quietly whilst the sun is warm and terraces are buzzing with atmosphere. In fact, a lot of locals think that summer is the best time of year to be in the mountains – and with so much going on it’s easy to see why.
