English translation:J'ai (déjà) complété trois saisons de travail aux sports d'hiver à Verbier (en Verbier)
Explanation:
à Verbier : if it's a town or a particular resort

en Verbier : if it is a region

You can of course say
"J'ai travaillé trois hivers ..."
"J'ai fait trois saisons d'hivers..."
the latter being more familiar.

As your original uses "finished" I think you may be able to say "complété".
Further, if you were actually working in the snow-sports field, then you could provide full info and say "aux sports d'hiver".

J'ai réussi trois saisons hivernales à (en) Verbier


Explanation:
Le verbe (réussi, complété, terminé, travaillé) dépend de ce que vous y avez fait. Je dirais "à" plutôt que "en" Verbier parce que je présume que c'est un village, n'ayant jamais entendu parler d'une telle région.

"J'ai maintenant fait trois hivers à Verbier" or "J'ai travaillé à Verbier trois hivers maintenant"


Explanation:
Just a couple more ways to say it. The word "maintenant" is used to emphasize the fact that those seasons are now completed. Somewhat equivalent to the English "I have now worked for three winters in Verbier."
