WELCOME TO LA TZOUMAZ
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 "Four Valleys" ski area, which consists of various ski resorts, including Verbier, Nendaz, Veysonnaz, La Tzoumaz, and Thyon. As such it has direct access to over 410 km of 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.
In winter you can enjoy a natural ice rink, a heated swimming pool and the longest sledge run in Western Switzerland (at 10 kilometres) which starts at the summit of the station (2,354m).
The resort is also directly linked to the Four Valleys ski area, with 98 more ski lifts and a total of 410 km of ski runs. The Verbier ski area of the Four Valleys is renowned for its off-piste opportunities. In particular Tortin, Mont Fort, Valon D'Arby and Creblet are popular excursions.
The Verbier-La Tzoumaz Bikepark had 5 separate downhill tracks each with at least 700m of altitude drop.
The "maison de la Forêt" has exhibitions of local wildlife and a popular cafe serving local produce. It’s also the beginning of the trail of the senses where you can discover nature with the Quiz of the 5 senses using your sight, touch, hearing, smell and taste.
Hikers can also discover the "bisses" and notably the bisse of Saxon. The small water channels have run through Valais since the middle ages bringing water from high in the mountains to the pastures below.
