Stories, information and comments from Verbier climbers
Story by Mike Bettess from Melbourne, Australia, submitted on 25/10/2012
The climb up to Verbier (from La Chable) is a great little warm up for Alpe d''Huez. The scenery is magnificent and we had great weather. However, there is lots of circulation from Martigny to la Chable and we nearly lost one of our riders to a truck. The traffic on the climb from la Chable was also surprisingly heavy. I would recommend more secluded climbs in the region like Avoriaz and Col du Joux Plane (a beauty!).

I climbed Verbier a couple of times during my stay there in summer 2009 (the year Alberto Contador got hold of the yellow jersey in Verbier during the Tour the France). With the Grand Saint-Bernard next to it and the col du Forclaz not too far away this region offers some splendid climbing.

The passage between Martigny and Le Chable runs smoothly, 2-4% in a beautiful scenery but possibly affected by a lot off traffic. Right after turning hard left at Le Chable roundabout the challenging part of the climb starts. Road conditions are mostly excellent and while turning hairpin after hairpin the stunning scenery of the ''Massif Combin'' unfolds to your South. Entering ''Verbier village'' is where a few passages of 7-8% await you but they won''t spoil your climb. If you''re still smiling when arriving at the city centre you can go a few kms further to the ''Carrefour'' with a splendid view over the town and its surrounding mountains.

If you''re not familiar climbing the Alps, Verbier might be a great place to get started. And if you are experienced it will certainly be challenging enough as well as rewarding. In the evening you will certainly enjoy the local cheese specialty ''raclette'' accompanied by a cold glass of white ''fendant'' wine.

I just climbed the Verbier today and thought was amazing. Such a beutiful scenery the whole way from Martigny. It was tough in the end I have to admit - a lot tougher than I thought it would be - but I am also a novice on the mountains - so maybe that´s why. However I can strongly recommend this climb.
