La Tzoumaz (also referred to as Les Mayens des Riddes) is a ski resort in the Swiss Alps, in the Canton of Valais. It is part of the 4-Vallées (Quatre Vallées) ski area, which consists of various ski resorts, including Verbier, Nendaz, Veysonnaz, La Tzoumaz, Bruson and Thyon. As such it has direct access to over 410 km of ski runs. Named after the word ‘tzoumer’, meaning, in the old dialect of the Valais, ‘taking a break’. Located on the north side of Verbier the resort has splendid views over the Rhone valley.
The village is a fantastic location from which to ski the Verbier 4-Vallées region in a luxurious chalet, without paying the huge prices of Verbier village itself. La Tzoumaz is the closest of the other valleys to Verbier and is only one gondola lift away from the main Verbier ski area. Whilst the village itself is quiet and unassuming, it has good facilities. La Tzoumaz’s own pistes are north facing, which means the snow retains its quality, even on warm days. It is also surprisingly un-crowded. It is also home to one of the best off-piste routes of the region – the Vallon D’arbi.
A free bus stop behind the chalet (Larzine) runs every 20-mins to the main gondola in la Tzoumaz
We recommend a car. 10-mins drive to main gondola.
