of the village is just 400m away.

Nendaz Resort Info
Nendaz is one of the smaller resorts linked to Verbier to make up the 4 Valleys ski network. It is a largely purpose-built, apartment-dominated village and is a fair bit quieter than Verbier. It also has the reputation for being a fair bit cheaper. Combined with Verbier, Thyon, Siviez and Veysonnaz, there's a total of 400km of pistes. The town is undistinguished, but it does have sufficient amenities for holidaymakers, with ice-skating, plenty of cafés and restaurants, a good ski school and childcare facilities. The skiing caters mostly to beginners and intermediates, but there is extended domain to explore for more advanced skiers. In particular, experienced skiers will love what Verbier has to offer, but the journey from Nendaz can be complicated.
Overall, Nendaz is a quieter and cheaper option than Verbier, but the Swiss concept of 'cheap' is a little at odds with that of many skiers. Nendaz does provide everything you need, including most of the delights that its bigger brother offers.

Snow Overview - Switzerland (snow news updated 04-Dec-2017)
Temperatures remained cold at around -2C in Switzerland on Thursday, and fresh snow has fallen at resorts that remain open. Visibility was largely limited as snow continues to fall up high, but conditions on the upper slopes are improving all the time.
In Adelboden (0/60cm) 10cm has fallen in the last 24 hours, whilst nearby at Gstaad (0/455cm) there has been around 15cm on the upper mountain. Lift numbers are limited at both resorts due to the tine of the year, however, if you do head up you can expect to enjoy some quiet slopes.
The best skiing can be found around the Matterhorn region, where only 6cm has fallen at Zermatt (0/155cm), but across the border in Italy there has been a lot of snow at Cervinia (30/235cm).
Pontresina (6/102cm) looks one of the best placed resorts to benefit from the snow that is forecast to fall over the next couple of days, and total accumulations could amount to around 75cm by Saturday morning.
Over the weekend we should see a change in the weather, with sun and warmer temperatures predicted to replace the current cloud.
European Weather Outlook
Across the central European Alps, snow and cold temperatures are forecast to stick around until Saturday. Accumulations of snow on the upper slopes could be huge for the time of year, with some Swiss resorts predicting around 80cm over the course of today and Friday. By the weekend the snow is predicted to subside in many regions and a mixture of sun and cloud is expected for much of Austria, France, Italy and Switzerland.
In the Pyrenees, Saturday should be the pick of the day for any skiing in Andorra. Our featured resorts are now closed for the season, but for anyone strapping on their skins, you can expect a mixture of sun and cloud, with temperatures around +3C
In Germany, 44cm of fresh snow is being forecast for Garmisch (0/380cm), who will be in disbelief at the moment for all the snow they have received of late.
Further north you can expect temperatures of around -3C and snow showers in Norway, which are set to continue right through to Sunday for resorts such Trysil. Across the border in Sweden, the weather should be fairly similar, but any snow that does fall is likely to be light and bring only 1-2cm.
Despite some recent biting temperatures and cold winds in the UK, any snow that does fall on the Scottish mountains is most likely to be on Thursday. Thereafter, rain could destroy any hopes of some late season turns.
