About

In summer you'll probably find it easier to find a space to park your car in Verbier. In winter, a covered or underground parking spot is the ideal place to leave your vehicle as it will save you all the hassle of digging it out after a snowfall, scraping your windows and trying to start a frozen car.

Things to remember:

Parking in ski resorts can be very problematic especially during high season, so it is always worth reserving a parking space in advance wherever possible to ensure you have a suitable spot to leave your car. Foreign plates do not give you 'diplomatic immunity' from parking fines so if you do leave your car in an inappropriate spot then you should expect to be ticketed or even towed away and impounded. 

Always pay attention to signs placed around parking areas in resort that may indicate a market or snow clearing taking place the following day. When there is snow to clear, ploughs show very little respect for things in their way and on more than one occasion have been known to scrape up the sides of errant vehicles causing significant damage. If you don’t move your car it will be towed and left elsewhere in resort, generally on the outskirts of town.

A few tips for parking your vehicle:

  • Park facing downhill and turn your wheels towards the kerb to act as a brake.
  • Leave your car in gear with the handbrake off as it can freeze and you can snap the cabling.
  • Lift the windscreen wipers away from the window so that they don’t stick to the glass and get damaged. If there has been heavy snowfall, clear the snow from your windscreen by hand rather that with your wipers – the weight of the snow can be deceptive and you’ll probably just end up burning out your wiper motor. You certainly don’t want to be without functioning windscreen wipers in winter with all the salt from the roads that sprays over your car.
  • Remember where you parked. This sounds stupid, but it can be very hard to identify your car under a metre of snow.

Car parks

It is forbidden to park along all resort streets and the local police definitely enforce this, especially during the winter season months. To avoid the annoying (and somewhat hefty) fines, it is better to park in one of the resort’s designated parking areas. There are four paying car parks and one free parking area.

For those of you driving electric cars, you'll find charging stations at all car parks. Enquire with your accommodation provider at the time of booking, as some hotels and chalets have charging points installed for guests to use.

Free parking

In Verbier itself parking is restricted and there are very few places you can park for free. The free bus service means that you can get around resort without your car. 

Further down the valley in Le Châble you will find a few free outdoor car parks. These car parks are extremely convenient for the Le Châble cable car which takes you up to Verbier in less than 10 minutes for access to the resort and skiing. There are four car parks in total in Le Châble:

Disabled parking

There are a few spots of disabled access parking in and around Verbier. The spaces are predominantly found close to the ski lifts, the main public car parks and tourist information centres. In both Verbier and Le Châble in most of the outdoor car parks you will find reserved disabled parking spots. It is always best to check the access before parking.
