Happy New Year!
Wednesday January 1, 2014 - Email this article to a friend

Ski resorts across the world celebrated in style with firework displays, parties and much else. PlanetSKI was in our home resort of Verbier in Switzerland as the clock struck midnight.

Thousands of people flooded into the main square, La Place Central, for the yearly celebrations. 

There is no organised firework display in the Swiss resort, just dozens and dozens of smaller ones.  

They start as soon as it gets dark.

Then from 11pm onwards the people head towards La Place Central.

At midnight the crowd in the centre of town goes, er, slightly mad.

We will be updating this report later with pictures from Verbier and further ones from ski resorts across the mountains.

Happy New Year everyone.Smile
