Easter In Verbier
Why not spend Easter in Verbier? Here’s what can you expect from the 2021 season with Ski Verbier Exclusive
The Easter holidays are all about spending some much needed downtime together as a family, enjoying long sunny days up the mountain before kicking-back in front of the fire, with a rich slice of chocolate cake in one hand and a glass of champagne in the other – this is the life! Our 16 luxury chalets vary in size, features and style, but one they all are is family friendly, we know how important and perhaps how daunting it can be travelling as a family for the first time, but we are here to help every step of the way. Our pre-arrival concierge team, lots of whom are mothers themselves, know the importance of selecting a good ski school and making sure you have everything you need in place for your arrival, from pottys to paints and nappies to swim noodles we’ve got it covered.
One of our favourite things about Easter is welcoming back familiar faces, lots of our guests have been staying with us for many years and our team have known the children from day 1, learn to ski, grow up and sometimes return with their own children! It’s like welcoming back friends, they know us and our service so well and we know exactly what they need to make a really special family holiday.
One of our most popular Easter treats is our famous St Bernard, Nimba, who you can meet for walks, which children (and adults!) really enjoy. There are lots of different activities to do for all ages, such as dog sledding and Easter Egg hunts organised by our chalet teams. Whether our guests would like to stick to something they know and have done before, or want to push themselves, perhaps with an off-piste day with a guide or go heliskiing. They could also stay local and do a chocolate-making class or go to the local fromagerie to learn how to make raclette cheese – that’s a favourite of mine! Our partners here in Verbier are really amenable in helping us adapt things to suit the guests. We’re really lucky with that.
Another popular activity is Easter egg painting classes at the local Mountain Thyme Cookery School. In our chalets, our chefs are very experienced and they’re constantly bouncing ideas off each other and mixing things up with seasonal menus. Easter is barbecue season and we do whatever we can to dine alfresco – the longer days and warmer weather makes a huge difference!
