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

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.
