The ski lifts are OPEN and Verbier Winter Season has officially started. The first lifts opened on Saturday November 9th and the ski area of Lac de Vaux welcomed lots of early skiers, taking advantage of the recent snowfall. Weekend skiing will now be possible and the early signs are that this season will be a great one, with a lot more snow forecast for later this week. This means that there will be a good early snow base for the season ahead. Temperatures have dropped to below freezing which will help maintain this base.

Nick from the team at Chalet Spa Verbier had the honour of first tracks on the mountain and sent us these photos to whet our appetite for the ski season ahead.
