After a sunny and busy summer here in Verbier, we are already starting to look forward to the winter. But first, there are some great activities happening in town this autumn. A week ago Verbier hosted the Swiss Mountainbike Downhill Championships, an incredible and adrenaline fuelled display by the best downhill bikers in the country. This weekend we enjoyed Bike Fest Verbier, a weekend full of stunt shows, motorbikes, petrolheads and much more.
The Swiss Epic is a mountain bike adventure from Verbier to Zermatt, via Leukerbad and Grächen. Professional and ambitious amateur athletes will take on the breathtaking trails in teams of two, competing in five stages from 14th to 19th September 2015.
Every year at the end of September the community of Val de Bagnes celebrates the infamous cheesefest. The goal of this event is to celebrate the end of the summer season and give locals and tourists alike the chance to taste cheeses from our local mountain villages, including Lourtier, Champsec, Verbier, Bruson, Vollèges and other areas in the Entremont region. This event is a must visit if you love wine and cheese, see you there!
