La Tzoumaz forms part of the 4 Valleys ski area which connects the resorts of Verbier, Nendaz, Veysonnaz and Thyon via a network of 92 lifts. The La Tzoumaz-Savoleyres area consists of 55km of slopes with a variety of open and wooded runs offering excellent snow conditions. The north-facing aspect ensures a long season. Often the snow conditions are better than on the Verbier side of the mountain, where one connects to the wider 4 Valleys lift system. For non-skiers there are 13.5km of snow shoe trails, skating on the natural ice rink and a 10km long toboggan run, Western Switzerland’s longest.
The village is connected by road to Verbier over the mountain pass which is open in summer, opening up all of Verbier’s summer attractions. Like its 4 Valleys neighbours Nendaz and Veysonnaz, La Tzoumaz is situated on one of the Bisses irrigation channels. These offer 100km of paths which are perfect for walking and mountain biking. More intrepid bikers can try the Verbier-La Tzoumaz bike park as well as the Tour du Mont Fort trails. There is tennis and a heated swimming pool in the village. Thirty minutes away by car is Les Marecottes where you can swim in natural rock pools. Forty five minutes away by car is the famous Aquaparc waterpark on Lake Geneva.
