Description

A mountain that barely needs an introduction. Home of the "Xtreme Verbier" and Freeride World Tour where the best of the best come and showcase their skills on the extreme face of the Bec des Rosses. There have been countless lines opened on this face. The East face is the 'easiest' route on the mountain but still a serious undertaking as are all the routes on the face. If you're coming to ski here, you don't need us to show you the way. :)
