Destination Showcase: Verbier, Switzerland
@lowekey: Please do not assimilate the rudeness you saw with people from Valais/Wallis. It is very specific to that resort and that's why we have a love/hate relationship with that place (and what it has become). I agree for the development part, basically the french part of the Valley is stuck in the 2000-2010 and can't develop anything that is modern trail-wise. It might be a mix of elitism and a lack of curiosity but yes, some of the new trails are basically just "meh". The new "flowtrail" mentioned in this article is a good example. Berms feels like 2010 and features are almost non-existent. There is no progression to be had and the trail is getting old very fast. Tourism-wise it's a bad investment. In my opinion it's where the resort of Graubuenden are years ahead. They are not afraid of building and rebuilding trails that are very tourist oriented (and fun for all levels). There is a bit of change coming with very nice trails being built in the upper part of the Valley (Bellwald, Grächen, etc.), i hope this is a wake-up call for the resort in the lower part of the Valley. Finally, while i understand the need for sponsored content, this article felt rushed (same for the pictures). As a tourist i'm not sure i would want to go there after reading it.
