This ski resort was well positioned and has a good selection of ski runs for all abilities. Sensible amount of cafes on slopes did not have to queue for ages.

This is such a hidden gem and has great activities for summer and winter. It was strangely quiet though, which is good on one hand, but a few more people may give it a lift. For skiing, I hope it stays a quiet resort!

Loved the wide slopes. Not an overbusy resort. Plenty of challenging runs and off piste ski ing. Plenty of snow. Plenty of places for lunch. Le Nevez is a good location for the gondola and the local bakers and supermarket provide all your food needs.
