PlanetSKI has been in Verbier this July testing out the Swiss resort's marketing slogan. Here we look back at our 4-days.

Verbier needs no introduction as a winter ski resort.

It is quite simpy one of the best resorts in the world for advanced skiers and snowboarders with its legendary off piste, steep black runs and challenges a plenty.

But in the summer?  

The resort is trying to recreate the same experiences in the summer months.

'We are making an all-out attempt to make summer in Verbier the same high-octane experience and more and more people are now coming in the summer months," said Vincent Riba from the resort's tourist office.

So, is Vincent right?  

Check back on the 4-part blog from our editor James Cove as he hit the zip wires, climbed Mont Fort, went on a high-altitude glacier hike and then tried his hand in the Verbier Bike Park.

And just in case you are wondering what James has done after the excitement of Verbier - he's headed over to Canada for a road trip around the Canadian Rockies. 

As you do.

Well, how else does one follow the energy of Verbier?
