Chalet Hotel Rosalp
It is equally close to the ‘Rond Point’at the centre of Verbier’s exciting range ofshops, cafés, bars and restaurants.
From the moment you step into its marble entrance hall and reception area, the Rosalp wraps you in its welcoming arms.
The well appointed bedrooms are split over two separately accessed wings of the building, one of which has a lift. The rooms are furnished in anattractively eclectic mixture of styles, and most areperfectly spacious enough to take an extra put-upbed if required. All have a flat-screen TV, mosthave a balcony or terrace, and all have stylishlyfitted bathrooms en suite.
The communal areas are equally attractive and welcoming, with old, polished wood panellinggiving a warm glow to the lovely dining-room andadjacent lounge. The lounge in turn connectsthrough to the hotel’s own residents’ bar – theideal spot for an après-ski drink by the log fire, ora fun evening with friends old and new.
As a slight variation to normal Chalet Hotel operation, meals here are prepared by the chef and team of the independently run à la carte‘Restaurant La Pinte’, which occupies part of the ground floor of the building.
The Rosalp’s sauna, steam-room and spa-bath complete the facilities for a thoroughly enjoyable stay with us here in Verbier!
Ski Area Access
The two Médran gondolas are the main accessroute up to Les Ruinettes and the heart ofVerbier’s huge ski area. From here, more lifts headon to la Chaux and Mont Gelé at over 3,000m,and the famously scenic cable-car ride to MontFort. Further piste and lift connections take you onto the Haute-Nendaz and Veysonnaz areas, and ifyou want to ski the Savoleyres / La Tzoumaz area,the ski-bus to the Savoleyres cable-car stopsclose to the Rosalp.
Verbier Resort Info
Verbier is credited as being one of the best resorts for advanced skiers, off-piste and après ski. This is not without due reason, as Verbier's breathtaking scenery invites ski holiday makers to enjoy unlimited off-piste and great black runs. There is also a small snowpark with access to bigger and better ones in nearby resorts. Access to 400km of varied pistes, excellent sun and snow records and some year round skiing on the Mont Fort glacier also means that Verbier appeals to most levels of skier. The disadvantages to skiing Verbier are that skiing lower down can be poor due to the sun, and that there can be long queues for the lifts.
Verbier ski resort
Verbier ski resort offers an excellent variety of restaurants, very lively nightlife and plenty of off-snow activities. However, prices are a bit of a shocker, even for Switzerland.

Snow Overview - Switzerland (snow news updated 01-Mar-2017)
Monday 27th February was a mostly stable and spring like day in Switzerland. Last week’s snowfalls have lightly refreshed the pistes and current on snow conditions are very enjoyable, although far more spring like then we would normally expect for February. Clouds will increase later this evening as Switzerland heads into a week of much needed snowfall. Tuesday will see widespread moderate to heavy snowfalls at all of our featured Swiss resorts. Expect powder and storm skiing conditions to remain all week before another round of heavy snowfalls over the weekend.
European Weather Outlook
It is set to be a complicated week for The Alps. Much needed heavy snowfalls will start late on Monday (27th) night and remain all day Tuesday, tapering off by early Wednesday morning. The heaviest snowfalls will be in France and Italy, but no matter where you are skiing in The Alps there will be fresh snow. Strong winds at altitude are forecast, so some ski areas may experience limited lift operations at times. It will be an excellent but challenging week of skiing ahead for the Alps in what can only be described as varied and complex season so far.
This weekend may see another round of heavy snowfalls, mostly on the southern and eastern sides of the Alps. Check back Thursday for a more comprehensive overview of upcoming conditions.
Elsewhere, snow is expected in the Pyrenees on Thursday, but not as heavy as what we will see in The Alps. Tuesday will see light to moderate snowfalls - Not enough to call a powder day but certainly enough to make on-piste conditions excellent.
Further north in Scandinavia, another typical weather week lies ahead. Light snow falls and fairly dull overcast skies will be the dominate feature. Temperatures will remain slightly below freezing creating most soft snow conditions.
