This December enjoy a skiing mini break at The Lodge Verbier

11th August 2016

What better way to celebrate the start of another snow-sprinkled season than by booking a short break in the Swiss Alps at Virgin Limited Edition’s ski chalet, The Lodge. This year for a limited time only The Lodge will be opening its doors for shorter exclusive stays of 3, 4 or 7 nights. Between the 10th and 22nd December those looking for a mini break in the snow can enjoy all the magic of The Lodge without having to stay a full week. It’s the perfect chance to get together with family and friends to enjoy world-class skiing, fabulous après-ski and your very own dedicated team for a little bit of pampering.

Situated on a quiet road just 250m from the main ski lifts and backing onto one of the returning pistes, The Lodge is in a perfect location for the slopes. The ski area around Verbier includes 195km of marked pistes of all standards and of every exposure divided over the sectors of Les Ruinettes, Les Attelas, Savoleyres, Bruson and within the resort.

At The Lodge we hand pick our own skilled team of professional ski instructors. They will make your Lodge experience truly unforgettable with the best skiing of your life. From nursery slopes for beginners through to off-piste and heli-skiing for the more adventurous skiers, the team have it covered and will help you arrange your ideal ski experience. And it doesn’t stop on the slopes; if queuing in a busy ski shop isn’t your style, you’ll love that we bring the gear to you to be fitted in the comfort of The Lodge. We’ll drive you to the lift station and there’s even a boot room in the chalet with heated boot warmers to keep your feet extra toasty.

For those looking to try something different, you can go cross country on snow shoes, or see Verbier from the air with a tandem paraglide. Or if you fancy escaping to the mountains to recharge your batteries you can kick back and relax in style! Take a dip in the indoor pool or venture outside and keep warm in the Jacuzzi. Let off some steam in our steam room or relax and unwind with a treatment in the capable hands of our resident beauty therapist.

The Lodge can accommodate up to 18 adults in 9 bedrooms and up to 6 children and young adults in a specially designed bunkroom. Rates during the winter season start from CHF 84,643 and are quoted for seven nights’ exclusive hire. From 10th -22nd December 2016, exclusive hire rates start from CHF 39,060 for up to 18 guests staying 3 nights. Rates include breakfast and afternoon tea, as well as dinner on all but one night during the week, when you’ll be able to sample the best of Verbier’s culinary delights. If you make it back to The Lodge for lunch, or if you choose to stay behind during the day, a light lunch will be served. All guests are encouraged to treat The Lodge like their own home and are welcome to help themselves to the drinks they would like at any time.
