WE LIKE

  • Pistes are excellent for intermediates and experts. Linked to the biggest ski resort in the world-Paradiski.
  • Great resort for families as some of the villages are ski in ski out, relativley flat and some family ski operators are big here.
  • Amazing off piste, the north face of the Bellecote has some of the best terrain in the Alps.

WE DON'T LIKE

  • The lift system can be a bit of a nightmare. It can take for ever to get yourself from one end of the resort to the other!
  • Peak season it can get very crowded here.
  • Nightlife is poor mainly due to the fragmented nature of this resort.
