Following a few days satisfying my city-girl fix in cosmopolitan Geneva, Switzerland’s second-most populous city at 1,353 feet above sea level, I was eager to bring down the pace a few notches but on higher ground in the southwestern mountain resort of Verbier just two hours away by train in the neighboring canton of Valais. The ascent was the perfect wind-down as tracks weaved through the breathless beauty of the Swiss Alps until finally reaching the ski village famous for sun-kissed slopes in one of Europe’s largest ski areas. With more than 400 skiable acres, it is considered one of the best off-piste resorts in the world.
