Wondering what to do this Christmas in Verbier? The festive season in the snowy Alps is always magical and every year there is some sort of celebration in resort to mark the occasion.
Christmas here is a far less commercial event than in the UK and so you won’t find things publicised for months in advance - but you can always be sure of a glass of vin chaud (mulled wine), a few carols and perhaps the odd firework or two! Many of the restaurants will put on a special festive menu with champagne and traditional dishes on the 24th, so book in advance if you want to treat yourself to a meal out.
