Last Saturday 2nd December saw the official opening of Verbier 4 vallees although many of the ski lifts and slopes have been open since early November due to the excellent early snow fall.
Once again Televerbier offered a special celebratory Free day of skiing to anyone dressed up as Father Christmas. One of the highlights of the day was the attempt to beat last years group photo record of 1,200 santas snapped at Chalet Carlsberg. The record was well and truly smashed with over 2,656 skiing santas attending the photo shoot making for the largest photographed group of Père Noëls ever gathered in Switzerland, validated by the Guiness book of records.
