After a spring of mixed weather summer is slowly approaching here in Verbier. Over the past two months temperatures have been rising and falling and we have had late snowfalls. Currently there is still a lot of snow at high altitude. Despite this Verbier is gearing up for another summer season.
Althought there is still snow above Ruinettes, Verbier Bikepark opened today. Lifts are running between Le Châble and Ruinettes during the weekends in June and every day from the beginning of July. We are looking forward to a sunny biking season!
During the summer there are various trail running competitions in the region. Last weekend the season kicked off with ‘Tour du Val de Bagnes’ and this weekend is the ‘Trail de la Pierre A Voir’. These races are training events for the biggest competition in early July- the ‘Trail Verbier-St.Bernard’.
This summer our Summer Camps in Verbier will run from 27th June until 19th August. We will be running exclusive summer language and adventure camps for children between 3 and 14 years old. This summer we are also introducing family programmes for adults and older teens. For families travelling together, Altitude are on hand to offer this unique experience, to ensure everyone makes the most of their trip. For more information visit our website www.altitude-camps.com.
This summer the classical music event ‘Verbier Festival’ will be held from the 22nd July until 7th August. The 23rd edition will host some of the greatest classical musicians in the world as well as great concerts and workshops. Altitude Camps will be partnering with the Verbier Festival in the organisation of the Verbier Festival Music Orchestra. We are looking forward to being part of this great event again!
