Nothing to dislike here. The snow was excellent, there weren't many people skiing, simply divine.
There was a steep descent on metal steps from the gondola that took a while but it clearly didn't bother anyone used to it (many people seemed to practically run down the steps in ski boots).

Lots of good off-piste in area with many long ungroomed black runs and plenty of acreage to ski. get's your heart beat up!

the snow this year is unbelievable! But very cold early in the day at Grand Montets. Book early for a place in the bubble to the very top.

Took tram to top of Grand montets, walk up the steps to top terrace. The views are stunning!!! See all peaks covered by snow all around you, just unbelievable. Very cold though. Took pictures with gloves liners my hands were still cold. But dont miss out this stunning view.

Excellent off piste area, accessible from the top of the main lift. Varied routes down that are both North and South facing making for varied snow conditions

Would not recommend for beginners or intermediates but great if it snows overnight as most of the off piste is easy to get too.
