It was the first time and I hadn't skied for about 15 years, so I wasn't sure what to expect. But we all had a great experience. My little niece (5 years old) went to ski school and loved it. My parents went cross-country skiing,...More

I was not expecting alot from this resort, but it more than delivered. Quite pistes, amazingly friendly locals, and beautiful surroundings. Plus the fondue was great.

I've been here the first time I started snowboarding and it's a very nice place to start. I haven't seen all the pistes so I prefer saying it's a medium skiiing area cause the more experienced ones liked it too.

Second year at this resort. Bit of trek to reach but worth it. Very affordable resort in comparison to larger areas. Lunch in the cafes for under 50€ for five. ESF ski school really helpful and organised. Decent bar or two etc etc

After spending multiple ski vacations in 'La Joue', we went there for the summer. We were surprised to see the activity in the station. The 'Office du Tourism' really makes an effort to organise all kinds of activities of wich some are free: circus school...More

Might be an idea to have a car, it's such a lovely area it would be a shame to miss out on things that are just that little bit further away like the serre poncon lake.
