Resort hot. Soft lower slopes. Mixture of icey groomed ridges on mid and upper slopes with some half decent scraped off powder patches on either side of piste. Softer in sun that we found better than the ice. Pick where you go at what time and you should not be too underwhelmed on ski's. Boarding much tougher. Give Val Thorens a miss due to flat cat tracks hard to keep speed up requiring poling or one for out. Seeing Lindsey Vonn in action was the redeeming feature!
