Full review

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 line course in the woods.. even ice 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
in few words:

Kids did like 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 want to feed family of 4!!!!!
we felt like >>> there is a resort..and not much else 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 ???!!!!!!!!!
