Excellent, fairly tough skiing.

The slopes are mostly north-facing and sufficiently steep that the sun hardly touches them. I think the pistes were a bit icy (although well groomed) but spent most of the time... read more

The slopes are mostly north-facing and sufficiently steep that the sun hardly touches them. I think the pistes were a bit icy (although well groomed) but spent most of the time away from them. The queue for the gondola to the top is an annoyance, the best ways down are a bit fraught because of the crevasses in the glacier.

Nice place, with intermediate-high level skiiers. Views are nice. It's good for a couple of days. For longer time would suggest to try the areas around. Short lines and well managed station.

Not for the "faint at heart." This is serious, hard-core skiing. Majestic mountain with FABULOUS trails.

May need a guide for some of the off piste stuff for intermediate skiers, but if expert skier, it is one of the better mountains in Chamonix.

Nice slopes a bit lower down than e.g. Brevent -> foresty scenery. A few really easy slopes, and a nice slope down to the valley.
