Living Lab Verbier | Switzerland

Ski resort

Linked to the 4 Vallées, Verbier and La Tzoumaz form part of Switzerland’s largest ski area with 410 km of slopes. With activities such as ski touring, heli-skiing, and freeride, Verbier provides a full range of opportunities to skiers and snowboarders. In summer, the area becomes a Mecca for mountain biking and hiking.


Verbier has a low carbon policy for reducing its carbon footprint, complying with the ISO 50001 certification. Verbier is harmonizing the energy saving policy and actions across its territory and the municipality of Bagnes to reach the gold label “Cité de l’énergie”. To this end, Verbier is implementing low-carbon measures related to its installations, buildings and mobility and keeps improving its energy management platform.


In the Smart Altitude Project, Verbier will work on innovative measures for monitoring, optimizing and managing energy-consumption of the overall ski infrastructure. A new concept will be tested based on the valorization of waste heat released by the ski lifts motor, wood fire burner for heat generation and PV solar panels for electric needs.
