a Tzoumaz is a quiet, family-oriented resort in the same ski circuit as Verbier, although it is one of the more remote communities from the main slopes. It does however boast a 10km toboggan run, the longest in French-speaking Switzerland and is close to the excellent intermediate pistes at Savoleyres. Note that there are cheaper lift passes just covering the area around Verbier (but not Mt Fort) or the area around La Tzoumaz/Savoleyres, as well as a pass covering the entire region of 4 Vallées/Mont Fort.
Best of the Slopes
The red run off Savoleyres back into La Tzoumaz is the only pisted run to get back with your skis or board attached, but is a lovely run to end the day with. For the more adventurous there is the outstanding Vallon d'Arby trail and all the off-piste options around it, but the last part of this route is a little flat.
Please refer to a map and check local conditions for accurate routing information.
