Beginners

Nendaz itself, and the Tracuoet mountain above it, is principally an area for beginners and intermediate skiers and boarders. The télécabine in Nendaz takes you up to 2200m, where ski schools take place and where you can practice your technique on some relatively tame slopes. Skiing back down to Nendaz can be done on blue slopes by taking the Alpage piste down most of the way, and then traversing along a tree-lined track to pick up the lower blue-rated slopes of the Jean-Pierre piste.

A great alternative area for beginners is the Tortin piste at Siviez, where you can get to by using the free ski bus from outside the télécabine lift station (journey time is approx. 20 minutes). The Tortin piste is blue and is serviced by a chair lift, which provides about 1km of gently descending piste for you to get those turns properly sorted out.

Skiing over the back of Tracuoet in order to link in with the rest of the Four Valleys is also possible for beginners, though it does involve a couple of red-rated pistes, and a button lift. If it is your first week on skis or a board, you might find it easier to travel to Siviez on the bus rather than ski it. For anyone who can snow-plough well and has mastered button lifts, the route is very achievable (but please note that the return journey involves a short and not-too-tricky black slope at the base of Plan du Fou).

Intermediates

The Four Valleys is a fantastic area for intermediate and expert skiers and boarders. Having spent some time locally around Tracuoet, you might choose to ski over the back, down the Prarion piste and upwards to the top of Plan du Fou (2430m). From there, an interlinked series of red and blue pistes can be taken down to the small village of Siviez, where your options are either Westward towards Verbier or Eastward toward Veysonnaz and Thyon. You can also get to Siviez using the free ski bus from outside the télécabine lift station (journey time is approx. 20 minutes).

The Verbier region abounds with wide red and blue slopes, and is very well serviced by lifts. It does, however, tend to get crowded on certain pistes in the busy weeks. The area between Siviez and Verbier, around the Mont Fort peak, is particularly blessed with itinerary runs and mogul slopes, if you feel like a challenge.

The pistes over at Veysonnaz and Thyon are largely red and blue, and there is a lot of tree-line skiing over there so the scenery is generally very picturesque.

Experts

There is a lot to entertain expert skiers and boarders in the Four Valleys. Around Nendaz and Tracuoet, there is a plethora of off-piste and tree-line skiing possible, but the majority of pistes themselves are red or blue. To get to the more challenging areas, you need to ski over to Siviez (again, lots of off-piste possibilities around Plan du Fou and between Plan du Fou and Siviez). Alternatively, you can get to Siviez on the free ski bus, which is caught from outside the télécabine lift station (journey time is approx. 20 minutes). Once in Siviez, your options are either Westward towards Verbier or Eastward toward Veysonnaz and Thyon.

At the top of the Verbier/Nendaz area is Mont Fort (3330m), which is accessed with two cable cars from Tortin. There is a steep but fairly short black run from the top of Mont Fort, and loads of long mogulled itinerary runs back to Tortin. The Chassoure itinerary piste in particular is legendary among those in the know, and will stretch the mogul-hopping abilities of most skiers. Over in the Verbier area itself, there are a couple of black pistes (above and below Les Ruinettes), and ample opportunity to ski off-piste.

The pistes over at Veysonnaz and Thyon are largely red and blue, but there are black pistes down from Greppon Blanc, and a long black down from Etherolla towards Les Masses.
