Originally, Verbier was only really considered a winter destination.  Now the resort has an amazing summer events calendar too.  As a result, Ski Verbier Exclusive has opened its chalet doors for the summer too.

Verbier Festival  (18 July – 4 August 2024)
This two week festival is, without doubt, the highlight of Verbier’s summer events calendar.  Although it attracts star performers such as  Martha Argerich,  Bryn Terfel,  Julian Lloyd Webber and Anoushka Shankar it is also an opportunity to see rising talent. The Academy offers master classes taught by international stars as well as a broad range of workshops. Whether you prefer open air concerts or intimate recitals, the festival has something for every classical music lover.

Cycling Events

E-Bike Festival  (15-18 August 2024)

Bagnes Raclette Cheese Festival (21-22 September 2024)
Celebrating its 20th Anniversary, held in September this event attracts over 15,000 foodies to the village of Le Châble.  As well as cheese and raclette from local dairies, visitors are invited to sample other local produce such as meat and wine.

"The combination of music and mountains is magical. I shall long cherish the memory of sipping champagne in the fresh mountain air during an intermission basking in the afterglow of Bryn Terfel's exuberant performance of Don Giovanni and watching the sun set over snow-clad peaks of the Combin massif."
