We really enjoyed ski here. The lifts are excellent, fast and not overcrowded. The slopes are wide, clear and plenty of nice snow. The food outlets were great. Ski instructors and equipment hire people really hospitable and friendly. Really great. We'll be back.

CMA is a magnificent mountain town. Better still in summer than in winter. Great hiking and mountain biking. Great gourmet and excellent shopping. Not for those on a budget.

One of the highlights this year was a visit to the Plaine Morte... More

Excellent venue with exceptionally well organized golf tournament. The whole town is tuned in to deliver an incredible experience. On top of that, both town and golf course are set in a sensationally beautiful scenery! Will definitely repeat....

Off course world famous 007 James Bond location as film Spy Who loved me was filmed on slopes there. I can still not imagine that I did 6 km, 2 hours of Ski Bike with professional guide. Be there to feel it.
