Flying to Geneva is easiest, but Zurich works as well. Then take the train to Martigny, to Le Chable, and jump on the cable car up the mountain.
WHEN TO GO
Verbier Bike Park opens in early June, but the top sections open closer to July. Unlike nearby bike parks in France, Verbier stays open right until the end of October.
Switzerland has four official languages, but this part of the Valais speaks French. English is very common in hotels, bike shops and restaurants. As always, common courtesies in the native language are good to know.
This depends on what you want to ride. A trail bike will be great, but if you want to just stay in the park a downhill bike or slack 160mm bike would be a blast. There’s plenty to ride if you bring an XC bike. Or, there are four stores that hire bikes.
Staying in Verbier can start from about 100 CHF (approx $135) in a studio apartment per night, or about 55CHF ($75) for one person in a hotel room with breakfast. But, the sky is the limit if you want to treat yourself. Try Verbier’s website for accommodation options.
