Full review

We visited Villars in spring of 2008. Accomodations were perfect, we had a beautiful and well appointed apartment. The Skiing is mostly intermediate terrain at Villars and sister area of Gryon but a side trip to Verbier was interesting and supplied quite challenging terrain. I think Villars is great resort for family with small children but not much exciting happening for adventure seekers on the mountain or in town for apres ski. Snow was limited to the upper mountain as it was a poor snow year for this region. Food on the mountain was excellent. Trails are well marked and groomed. Good lift service with a few surface lifts that don't get crowded. I think a great place to learn to ski and the ski schools were quite active. The town does not offer much nighlife. A few good restaurants in town. Not like Kitzbuhel or Chamonix. Limited shopping. Montreax is just up valley so if you need nightlife it is a short drive.
