It is located at an altitude of 1500 meters in the middle of one of the largest skiing areas of Europe, ‘Les 4 Vallees’.
The best thing about this alpine village is that it can be visited throughout the year, with each season offering something different for vacationers. For instance, if you visit Vernier in summer, you can explore several sports opportunities like golfing, hiking, mountain biking etc. The winter season plays host to the event ‘Xtreme Vernier’ where you can see fearless snowboarders descending the slopes at rapid speed.

If you are lucky, you can witness the sunrise on any Thursday in summer on the Mont-Fort. For adventure lovers, there is so much to look forward to. Teenagers and children can take part in diverse activities such as trekking, pony riding, kid workshops involving lessons in cooking, handiwork and pottery and introduction to various sports like canyoning, rock climbing, bivouacking and fishing. Then, the hanging bridge can be crossed or an attempt can be made to reach the peak of the climbing tower in the Medran Parc.
You can also take a scooter ride between Vernier and Les Ruinettes or between La Tsournaz and Savoleyres. This is not your ordinary scooter but a specially designed one for downhill known as ‘Arapho’.
