“Fantastic Place to Ski”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

A nice quiet place to ski. Hills for every level of skier. If it is sunny, the view is breathtaking and the skiing is amazing. The times we have been there, about half the time. it has been snowing and the visibility has been very poor and the skiing is quite tricky. Fortunately, there are numerous chalets and restaurants for apres-ski. It is a series of ski hills, so you can roam over a very large area and try a different set of terrain every run all day long. You have to be careful to give yourself enough time to get back to where you started at the end of the day or you could get stranded in the middle of nowhere. The people are very friendly and accommodating. Can't wait to go back.

“Delightful Runs & Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

As in most of Europe, names and levels of the runs are not easily discernable via signage. The great thing about this mountain is that the runs graduate from blue to red to black gradually and a good intermediate skiier in the States can feel comfortable on all the runs we were able to get to in a day.
We certainly wish we had planned 3 days of skiing here rather than the one that we did.
Lift tickets were more expensive than on similar mountains in France however.
Everything about the village, the mountain, the food and our accomodations were highly memorable.
LOVED IT!!!

“Excellent position and structures”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

Wonderful mountain village that in winter turns in an attractive ski station with lot of facilities for children.
I noticed that the best period for skiing is february, but sometime also december gives you some satisfactions.

“Gorgeous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

It's small and beautiful! Perfect for families, it doesn't have that big ski center feeling. The only damper would be the food but then again isn't it always the case on the slopes.
