From the railway junction of Martigny, take the train along a secondary spur route to Le Châble. Call tel. 0900/300-300 or see www.sbb.ch for train schedules. At Le Châble, you can transfer to a postal bus. Le Châble is also the departure point for an aerial cableway leading directly to Verbier. The cost of one-way transport on the cable car is 10F per person.

During the peak of the ski season, a consortium of hotels operates a shuttle bus that travels directly from Martigny to Verbier that's timed to coincide with the arrival of important trains into Martigny. The one-way cost is 19F. Regrettably, it operates only during winter, and only on Friday afternoon (one bus) and on Saturday (three buses). For shuttle bus information and reservations, call tel. 0900/300-300.

If you're driving, take N9 as far as Martigny on the Great St. Bernard route. Turn left for Verbier at Sembrancher.
