Les Esserts is the most popular ski slope for beginner skiers in Verbier. It has one button drag lift and one magic carpet (ideal for beginners and children). There are two gentle slopes either side of the main drag lift. Les Essert is situated right next to the Hameau bus stop, take the No. 2 bus from anywhere on the Verbier bus route.
The bottom of Le Rouge piste is next to the Brunet bus stop, and buses 1,2,3 and 4 all stop here. Le Rouge ski area is served by 1 long button drag lift and a magic carpet. The magic carpet here is used mainly as an access to the bottom of the drag lift, however it can be a quieter than Les Esserts during busy peak weeks. The poma takes you to just below Carrefour and it is possible to ski to Medran or back to Brunet. Le Rouge is best suited to advanced beginners whether on skis or a board, and is a great slope to progress to after Les Esserts.
