“Beautiful ski slopes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

The area offers different level of ski slopes.They are always very well groomed and the snow is usually very good due to the fact that most of the slopes are at quite high altitude.Even during weekends or school holidays,apart from the queu that you'll find at the beginning ,thechoice is so huge up on top that you never queu up much.It is a sunny and beautiful area.

“Fantastic, quiet resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2013

I ski here each year. Good snow due to proximity of the Mt Blanc. Fab views, good variety of runs. Very family friendly village. Not a purposed built resort town but a real working town.
Enjoy no queues and powder on the side of the piste days after it has snowed. No big tour operators here so its not overdeveloped and busy.

“Quiet Resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2013

The Resort is very Quiet compared to some other French Ski Resorts I've been to, which is a bonus, has plenty of runs for beginners up to expert black runs, and a lot of off piste skiing available as well. The Town itself is also very Quiet with only a few bars, but loads of restaurants and shops. If you like a Party Life Apre Ski, this is probably not the best resort for that.

Loved the quiet of the slopes without snow boarders all over the place, and how friendly people were!
