In line with other reviews, the hotel is well situated for the slopes. Safe passage to cross the road to get to the ski lift near by. The hotel service is very good. They will organise passes for you so you just have to worry about equipment, which is available by the ski lifts.
The food (included in the price) has great variety (you have a buffet style layout plus each day there is a menu you can also pick from for evening meals). Kids choices are good too.
We have 3 kids and so the services / food / facilities for them is important to us. The first time we went (Feb 2009) we were impressed with all of these. Our youngest was then still 1 so we had to pay for a "babysitter" however the club was free for our other 2 kids (then 3 and 5).
The spa facilities are very nice (and free apart from other treatments). The only downside is that you're requested to go as nature intended - I know that can be an issue for some.
The pool area is nice and good to relax. There is a slide for kids (and big kids - me) that is good fun. This is next to the main pool and kiddy pool but behind a glass door / glass wall area which means all the noise of the fun in there is limited is volume for those relaxing by the big pool.
I was so impressed that I took my eldest son for a long weekend in March / April this year. The only downside at that time was that the slopes had less snow so the runs were limited compared to earlier in the season. Also, I'm am a beginner skiier as is my son, and I know others who are better skiiers would like more challenging runs or more variety after a week on the slopes.
I should also say that the ski schools were very good.
All in all, very nice, and recommended, especially to families.
