Verbier Opens for Summer Skiing Weekend

verbier mont fort

 

The Swiss ski resort of Verbier has announced that it will be opening this weekend for skiing & snowboarding following the exceptional snowfall last winter. Although summer has finally arrived in the alps, at altitude there are still large quantities of snow.

The abundance of snow and a good weekend forecast has led the resort to open the Mont Fort area, giving a vertical descent of 400m.

The Verbier glacier used to open up for summer skiing back in the 1980s, however the retreating glacier meant that this came to an end and there has been no summer skiing for the last 25 years.

The lifts will be open in the morning only, on 13th & 14th July, and a lift pass will cost 20 Swiss Francs. Lifts from Le Châble, Verbier and Siviez (Nendaz) are scheduled to open at open at 08.00 with the lifts at Mont Fort open from about 10.00 to 13.00.
