Swiss law states that you must be over 16 years old to ride an ebike. It is permitted for children between the ages 14-16 if they possess a moped driving license.

The Gourmet stops

The Verbier E-Bike Festival offers you 6 gourmet stages accompanied by various entertainment, around which you will taste typical Valaisanne products.

 

Found more about the different stops below.

 

Stage n°1: For the first stage, the Palp Festival shop in Bruson will welcome you around a "Valaisan Breakfast". Get your appetite going with some Valaisan fruits and croissants as the day begins.

 

Stage n°2: "Authenticity" At the Musée du Four à Pierre Ollaire, immerse yourself in “Bagnard” traditions.

 

Stage n°3: Stop Altis: "Water and cheese, it’s a long story" Take the time to breathe at the top of the longest climb of the day, fill up your water bottle, find out where this water comes from and do not forget to eat the traditional raclette cheese accompanied by a glass of wine.

 

Stage n°4: "The past still relevant" It’s time for an aperitif! Here, at the Four Banal, you will discover the local, historical, culinary flavours that have kept their flavour until now.

 

Stage n°5: "A little sugar for the last few kilometres" Le Couvert de Charançon, in the heart of the forest, will be the ideal place to enjoy nature and to let your inner foodie speak for itself through the desserts and coffee

 

Stage n°6: "After the hard work, comfort" After a long journey, it's time to quench your thirst! So join us at the finish line, in the Place du Châble, return your bike and enjoy a beer while you recover and continue the beautiful day in a friendly atmosphere.
