With lifts closing the only way to get up to the snow in many places is to walk. Check out this PlanetSKI video.
We made it at the end of last season once the lifts in Verbier had closed and it gives you an idea of what it is like.
Our content editor, James Cove, walked up to the Col de la Chaux in Verbier with some friends at the beginning of last May.
For those that haven’t done it then it seems rather odd.
For those that have it is a great way to see and experience the mountains once the crowds have gone.
