With 410km of pistes, lifts whisking you up to 3300m and freeride lines of all shapes and sizes, it's obvious why the 4 Vallées - Switzerland's largest ski area - is a mecca for serious off-piste skiers. With couloirs and steep faces everywhere you look, you'll realise immediately upon arriving that the 4 Vallées is a place where you won't run out of challenges.

If you ski the biggest lines that the area is home to then you'll be on some of the most serious terrain in the Alps, but there's plenty of great easier lines to work through before you start pushing your limits. In this guidebook you'll find a selection of those cruisy lines, all of them accessed easily from Verbier - the largest and most famous town in the 4 Vallées.

There's some open faces in here, such as "Attelas - Etablons - Ba Combe" and some smile-inducing tree skiing like "Savoleyres Trees" and a few lines which combine both.

Having skied these lines you should have the lie of the land and be ready for explore further, and we've got you covered for that too! https://fatmap.com/guidebooks/5741/freeriding-verbier/@46.1244399,7.2887746,21550.6821734,-90,125.1405052,2535.2580506,normal

Once you've done every route in that guidebook, you really will be a 4 Vallées aficionado, but will still have a lifetime's worth of exploring to do in the area!
