WE LIKE

  • Very extensive, pretty, intermediate terrain
  • Wide range of cheap and cheerful, good-value accommodation. Ski school and childcare excellent making it great for families
  • Easily reached - a short drive from Sion or Geneva and one of the closest resorts to the Channel tunnel

WE DON'T LIKE

  • Traffic congestion can be a problem at weekends and in peak season
  • Both the resort and the slopes are low for a French resort, with the resulting risk of some poor snow
  • Some main lifts are a bus-ride from the village centre. Not great apres ski
