News – 2017/18

The Mont-Gelé cable car, which serves steep off-piste runs only, was built in 1959 and reached the end of its legal life. So a new cable car of similarlty small capacity (45 people per cabin, 400 people per hour) was built to replace it.

A new snowmaking system was installed in the Savoleyres sector of Verbier’s skiing.

Summary

Nendaz is a sizeable place linked to the Verbier ski area. The resort is mainly apartment-based but built in traditional chalet style around the old village of Haute-Nendaz – with its narrow streets, old houses and barns. The local slopes are north-facing, with snow-sure nursery areas and a handful of gentle blues and shady reds. Although Nendaz appears centrally set, getting to and from the other sectors is a slow business unless you drive/take the bus to Siviez. Key links have no snowmaking and the return slopes involve an itinéraire and black run.
