There is something for everybody here, and skiers report that long, rolling reds and blues, as well as the off-piste opportunities in Les Contamines, are particularly memorable. Snowboarders are spoilt with two snowparks, containing jumps, boxes, rails and more, and there is over 20km of cross country track for those so inclined.
