Full review

I visited this resort as part of a longer stay in the Paradiski region and I liked iut the most from my visits to bigger La plagne and lesa arcs on either side too. It's maybe not the best choice for party animals (see the afore mentioned for more choice) but it was great for me and mny family to chill out in and spend the night in the locaL bar.

The resort is actually maade up of half a dozen different villages or hanmlets a few kilometres apart, and most of them, including ours, wasn't connected by ski lifts or ski runs to Les arcs and poaradiski so if that matters to you, make sure you get the right location (the upper village is right up at the Vanoise Express station on the Les Arcs side.

Otherwise it is in a great position for skiing either Les Arcs or, with the Vanoise Express/Paradiski pass (Note: one of europe's most expensive lift tickets), La Plagne too. We took a day in the Nordic paark and tried biathlon, with was a great experience and highly recommended.
