Because we’ve been teaching skiing here for years, we’ve got to know some great people and plenty of great places, and our ski school only works with the nicest people in Verbier, so we thought you might be interested in finding out a little more about them..
Powder Extreme are our partners in Verbier, and they’ve been operating their specialist off-piste ski school for about ten years, with hugely qualified and experienced ski instructors – the perfect way to explore Verbier’s freeride terrain. So if you want to experiment in off-piste, drop cliffs, shred powder or just get away from the hustle of the pistes, these are the people to talk to.
Buying, selling and renting property in a ski resort like Verbier requires intimate knowledge of the market place along with its technical, legal and fiscal requirements.

Whether buying, selling, letting or renting (holiday or seasonal) pop down to the new Savills office on Place Centrale for an informal chat

No.14 Verbier is an exceptional chalet made possible by an outstanding team of dedicated staff. The owner, David Pearson, has been operating luxury chalet holidays exclusively in Verbier since 1992. All the managers and in particular, David, know Verbier inside out. Verbier was chosen as the perfect resort as it combines superb skiing opportunities, a picturesque village and a lively après ski environment. In addition, as it’s only a 90 minute drive from Geneva airport, weekend and short stay skiing is easy.
Perfectly placed at the foot of the piste, W Verbier brings contemporary, urban style to town. There are 123 spacious rooms and suites as well as two amazing restaurants, a hot pre-après ski bar, the W Living Room (serving top-notch cocktails), CARVE nightclub and the W Café – the perfect stop to pick up a coffee and a bite to go, before hitting the slopes. There’s even an indoor/outdoor pool, FIT® gym (open 24/7) and the AWAY® spa. But if all that isn’t enough to keep you busy, their Mountain Concierge will give you expert advice on any mountain activities and the famous Whatever/Whenever team are on hand to look after you 24/7.

We've been devoting our time to organising the very finest skiing holidays for 20 years and work very closely with all the best privately owned and operator run properties available - offering you an extensive, yet handpicked choice. Everything in our collection is personally inspected by us on a regular basis and must offer that 'certain special something' that sets it apart from the rest. We work for you, rather than for any particular hotel or resort, so you can trust that our advice is always impartial. The best part of all is that you never pay extra for our services (a common misconception) and we often have access to a multitude of last minute deals and special offers. We will always get you the most for your money and you pay the same with us as going direct; we'll save you time AND give you much more choice.
You ski, we'll take care of the rest

The Pub Mont Fort is a legendary place to go in Verbier and has a rather fond place in our hearts – not only did Kent and Jenny both work there (and they still sometimes step in to work the odd shift) but it really is part of the very fabric of the town; and as well as offering some pretty impressive apres ski, they also deliver the best burgers (and now curries) in resort. No visit to Verbier would be complete without a trip to The Pub Mont Fort. Or several.
