Trip Planner: Europe / Switzerland / Swiss Alps / Canton of Valais / Verbier / Mont-Fort
Mont Fort is a mountain of the Pennine Alps, located near Verbier in the Swiss canton of Valais. It lies on the range between the valleys of Bagnes and Nendaz, north of the Rosablanche. With a height of 3,328 metres (10,919 ft) above sea level, Mont Fort is the highest summit north of the Col de Louvie (2,921 metres (9,583 ft)).Take a look at our Verbier trip itinerary planner to schedule your visit to Mont-Fort and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
Mont Fort is surrounded by several glaciers, the largest being the Glacier de Tortin, on its northwestern side. The second largest is the Glacier du Mont Fort, located on its northeastern side. On its eastern side lies the lower summit Petit Mont Fort (3,135 metres (10,285 ft)). The Glacier du Petit Mont Fort lies between the two summits. There are no glaciers on the south side of the mountain. A small lake named Lac du Petit Mont Fort (2,764 metres (9,068 ft)) lies on the south flank.
The summit of Mont Fort is easily accessible by cable car from the heights of Verbier or Nendaz. The cable cars from the two valleys converge at the intermediate station (2,894 metres (9,495 ft)) north of the Col des Gentianes, the upper section reaching a height of 3,308 metres (10,853 ft). In the winter and early spring season, the mountain, including the Glacier de Tortin, is the culminating point of the 4 Vallées ski area, accessible by the "Mont-Fort" cable car. There is one ski slope leading down from the mountain's peak - which then leads down to the Col des Gentianes, where a restaurant and two cable cars leading down to Verbier and Siviez (Haute-Nendaz) are situated.

It's an amazing view point at 3300 meters. You can see the major peaks of the Alps including the Matterhorn and the Mount Blanc. On an overcast day it's often above the clouds, making it an amazing view point. To ski from here it's only for more advanced riders, but you can take the gondola down if the slope it's difficult for you. Highly recommended!
High peak of Verbier... 3300m...nice view from there on Alps, especially when is sunny☀️👌... From there is black pist and is hard,sometimes lot of ice and wind... All recommendations for good skiers
