How did you end up in Verbier?

Luck and chance really, Ben a friend I worked with in New Zealand told me about Performance ski school. He had just done his first season with them and couldn’t have spoken about them with higher regard. He knew they were looking for Instructors and suggested I apply, I managed to snag a Skype interview with the guys and the rest is history.

Cabane Mont fort, chicken and chips all day! However if the weather isn’t playing ball then head to Carrefour, not much I wouldn’t recommend on their menu.

Best place for Aprés ski?

Vinabagnes terrace for an after ski chouffe in the sun is a hard spot to beat. Best place in town for Verbier people watching.

So the snow is falling and it should be snowing right down to Le Chable by tomorrow morning.

Which means we can all restart the debate about whether or not it’s a good omen, if it’ll be a good winter, if we will be open by November, and of course should we expect anything of the sort?

We put something on Facebook the other day about the snow coming and whilst loads of people got excited, a few were pretty pragmatic. And you have to be.

Because what we get this time of year doesn’t dictate what kind of a winter we’ll get.

This time last year we had nothing – NOTHING – up there until that first weekend in December. And we all know what happened after that – we had an epic season.

That said, if you can’t start rumours, make exorbitant claims about the amount of snow we’ll get, and turn it into an obsessive conversation in the Pub Mont Fort (which opens on the 2nd November as it happens – Colin, mine’s a Guinness) then it’s no fun whatsoever.

So we’ll continue to drop phrases like “The One Hundred Year Storm” into conversation and generally tantalise everyone with rumours of patterns in the Atlantic deepwater “conveyor belt” system thingy bringing in storms.

As Oli pointed out, it’ always snows at this time of year. Bless him. So enjoy and keep checking the webcams – they’ve changed a bit and should work on iPhones and iPads now, although at he same time a few have stopped working completely, which is annoying…



Sophie steps up and tells us exactly what’s happening in Verbier. And also uses the word “absolutely” with gay abandon.

Yes, Guy’s following up on his dreams of becoming some kind of celebrity weather guru by talking to the nice people at the Sunday Times.

Of course had they asked about what was to come this week, they’d have been very happy to hear it’s going to snow on Thursday and Friday. How much? Well, somewhere between a bit and a lot, depending on who you ask. It keeps changing you see.

If you were to ask us, maybe 20cm at mid station. (That’s a total guess so click here for a more accurate figure).
