    Xtreme Verbier

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A lovely snowy cascade...


    Don't even think about it...

    Why extreme? Just look up the Bec des Ross peak, you will see some Kamikaze riding down the face avoiding or jumping rocks barriers... of course everything are under control... until the next turn ;-)

    Bec des Rosses playground: 3222m, 45°-55° slopes and 500m vertical drop.

    Next 11th edition: 17-19 March 2006 to see pro freeriders in fresh powder from the friendly village is set up at the Col des Gentianes (3000 m) just in front of the Bec des Rosses: the perfect place to admire the breathtaking runs of the freeriders.

    Ride the Mont Fort

    by Tripack Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Up or down?


    The highest point in the region is the Mont-Fort at 3330m. From its peak , one can enjoy an incredible view of the Matterhorn, the Grand Combin and the Mont-Blanc which at 4807m is the highest peak in Europe.

    A 3km steep slope "dives" 436m lower in direction of the Col des Gentianes area. Only recommended for good skiers... watch the bumps ;-)
