verbier - skiing 2 pistes open

we are thinking of going skiing in verbier tomorrow morning.
website says there are only 7 lifts and 2 pistes open. it also says the ski pass for the day is 61CHF per adult!!!!!!
surely, with hardly any runs open, they reduce the pass price? anyone got any experience of this?

Re: verbier - skiing 2 pistes open

The price of anything is the price other people are prepared to pay. The value is the price you are prepared to pay.

When snow first falls it is not fixed to the mountain's surface and it is sometimes blown off the slopes. There has to be several days of warming and cooling, and grooming with the piste machines, before the public can ski: otherwise all the fluffy snow will be pushed to the sides.

Just wait another 1 or 2 weeks, and there will be better value. Have you looked at Portes du Soleil, do they have more open pistes?

Ruinettes and lac des Vaux is quite large area- and the price is as Sbrinz says, supply and demand.
