Mountain: great choice of runs for east North America snow quality can be questionable and unpredictable enough choice for intermediate to advanced skiers even experts can have fun here ( in long moguls, "icy" steeps) in my opinion>> not a good mountain for beginners *************************************************************************************** Village: nice layout ( European village..sort of) great choice of restaurants good to excellent accommodation ( get what you pay for) ******************************************************************************************* CONS: *Too close to larger cities of Ottawa and Montreal.....BUSY...( Friday...Sat..Sun...Monday) * weather and snow quality is a "lottery" almost ( from slush to icy runs...turning intermediate runs to almost expert skier explorations) *some runs cannot be even skied in March.. unless you are a dare devil...risking your legs and skis.... * No really nice mountain villages around to visit....just staying in resort ...might not be for everyone *expensive food combined with price for the tickets..etc...can make your stay quite unforgettable.... ********************************************************************************************** PROS: >>Try other activities>> dog sled rides......zip line course in the woods.. even ice climbing....you might even forget about the "Ice" skiing...which is not as pleasant Kids will like IT.....Grown ups....bring your wallets....french mountain is waiting for you all ************************************************************************************************ OUR EXPERIENCE in few words: Kids did like it....to keep them busy..we had to open our wallets more than we wanted....extra activities do ad a lot to the cost of the trip It was busy...too busy to be comfortable on the mountain restaurants quite expensive.....you want to feed family of 4 there....wow!!!!! we felt like >>> there is a resort..and not much else around....no beautiful mountain villages to explore , BUT in summer it might be different...(some nice lakes in the area) PARKING...THE WORST......multi- million $$ resort..and their parking lot is a "MUD BATH "... bring extra clothes, just in case you have to walk thru it ???!!!!!!!!! more info...feel free to contact
