Fat-bike on ski pistes?

Hi,
I live near Verbier, Switzerland, and was wondering if it would be worth it to rent a hardtail fat bike for the mountain instead of skiing/boarding?

For a day or for a season ?

I would want to do both. If You live in such fantastic playground you need to 'live it up' :-)

Do they allow fat bikes on groomed trails in Switzerland? They don't (yet) across the border in France.

From my very limited observation at Courmayeur, Zermatt or Cervina ... there are dirt and service roads that go up to the huts and lifts in the summer. Once snow comes those roads get groomed just like ski slopes and those roads could be marked as accessible by a bicycle.
