Great family time. Was not the best ski area I have ever been to. I am by no means a professional and due to my skill level and comfort zone I stick to no more than Blue slopes, which didn't leave me many options here compared to other places I have been. The weather was great, the equipment was good... More

Took my two boys, 10 and 5, for a ski weekend. Skied Friday and Saturday. Highly recommend going on a week day as there are no lines for rentals, tickets and lifts. Friday was a perfect day. The weather was great and the snow conditions were perfect. It only got slushy after 3:30pm. The layout of the resort is excellant... More

We were here last Thursday night and had a wonderful time! All the employees are very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. My thirteen-year-old son took a group lesson and he ended up being the only skier and had a fabulous lesson. Some places would have cancelled the lesson, but they didn't. I was amazed at... More

This would be a great place to learn, but if you're a little experienced and get bored easily, don't bother. The runs are very short.

I took my grand kids here for their first ski experience. The slopes are perfect for beginners, but also have some challenging slopes for the more experienced skier or snowboarder. The ski school was very good, with lots of different packages available and gave them a good starting lesson. Prices seemed to be very reasonable for renting equipment as well... More

1. 30-min traffic jam at 9am 1/4 mile from the slopes because the roads weren't cleared. On a Saturday. 2. LONG line for clothing rentals. One cashier. On a Saturday. 3.Filthy bathrooms. No attendants. This was the weekend after Presibdat's Day, so this wasn't a holiday weekend.

We have skied for many years in the French Alps, so we're a bit spoiled, but were actually pleasantly surprised by this resort. Though it only has several slopes, they were well prepared and decently challenging, so also suitable for more experienced skiers. Also the resort is well managed: spacious and well structured parking, easy ticketing (even while though it... More

The instructors here are the best! My kids can't wait to go and spend some time of the snow with the instructors from the French Swiss Ski College. My five year old begs to be in her lesson. They make being there so enjoyable, relaxed and just plain fun. My eight year old loves learning tricks and they have been... More
