About 4 Vallées
The 4 Vallées ski area includes the glamourous resort of Verbier, Nendaz, Veysonnaz, Thyon, La Tzoumaz and a handful of charming smaller villages dotted around the ski area.
The skiing itself is extensive, with over 400 km of pistes, so there is a huge range of options for all levels of skier, from novice to expert.
La Tzoumaz is at an altitude of 1550m, and is regarded as on of the hidden gems within the 4 Vallees. It offers immediate access to the larger resort Verbier, but doesn’t have any of the queues. This family resort is peaceful with amazing ski condition for all abilities, which will keep you coming back again and again. La Tzoumaz is orientated to the North, which ensures snow cover from early December through to April. It also have the gentle and sunny slopes on the south side of the mountain which are more suited to leisurely skiing and stopping for a few drinks along the way.

The 11 ski lifts from Veysonnaz include a cable car taking skiers up to 2100m, as well as the famous "Piste de l'Ours" chair lift and venue for Les 4 Vallées annual World Cup ski race.
The three villages of Les Collons and ski centre of Thyon – at altitudes of between 1800m and 2100m – offer all the amenities you will need to make your time on the mountain a relaxing and memorable experience with a high speed four person chair lift in the centre of Les Collons taking you direct into Les 4 Vallées ski system. This resort has wide-open sunny slopes and a billabong snow park offering skiing and boarding for all levels.
