We're supposed to be the smartest things on the planet. Wouldn't guess so the way a lot of people have behaved this year.

my hypothesis:

1. their british ski holiday tour operator organized a bus to france without telling authorities and picked them up in the night. It's a quick jump over the border from verbier.
Actually it isn't a quick jump. First you have to get to Martigny, then up a big, big hill up to Chamonix via both French and Swiss immigration posts. Then from there it is mostly motorway down to ... Geneva, which can be avoided with care.

Re: 200 Brits Escape from Verbier

Well, presumably they know their identities from their passports/reservations so I hope Switzerland will slap them all with at least a 10 year ban on entering the country since it would apply to the rest of Schengen Area as well. No more ski holidays for them for a while.

Dunno, I am only used to have band practice rooms in the basements

And it's really not kinky. Nor Brit accent.

Re: 200 Brits Escape from Verbier

I see the makings of a full length feature film "Escape from Verbier" to be shown by the BBC on Christmas day every year till at least the year 2070

Anyone care to list the leading roles ?
Nominations for starring roles?

Re: 200 Brits Escape from Verbier

Has it crossed the collective mind that some of these UK nationals in Verbier could be longtime legitimate residents living in Switzerland and they simply went home?
There are 42000 British people living in Switzerland.
