A large sprawling resort. One of the older resorts it does not have the walkways you get with the newer custom built resorts. Getting about is not a problem though as there is the usual free bus that runs about every twenty minutes through out the resort. There are plenty of shops and bars, a good outdoor ice skating rink which is 4 euros with your ski pass, a excellent outdoor swimming pool free with your ski pass and good indoor swimming pool also free with your ski pass at the large sports centre. The resort doesn't appear to suffer from drunken yobs roaming the streets at night like I've seen recently at places like Tignes. The are a mix of chalets and smaller to medium sized hotels. It does not have the huge self catering blocks that you get in Les Arcs. I would classify this as a begginers or family resort. The begginers slopes are vast and probably the easiest you will find anywhere in france. One thing I didn't like about the pistes here is that they are not interlaced so you tend not to be able to do part of a run and then switch to something easier if you want. So once you start a run you are committed. Also I like to have a look at the harder runs before doing them, again here you cant do that.
