Great Hotel, long runs, loads of sun, great off-piste
Lack of snow, poor apres ski

Full review

22nd Feb 2009. No snow all week but an abundance of sunshine. Awesome ski weather overall, but the lack of snow meant that the runs into Corbier were terrible. Luckily most slopes in the Seybelles region run easily onto off-piste, meaning that you can have a run which is the same steepness as the piste but with better snow back into the resort - this definitely deteriorated later in the week though. All in all the skiing was great; lot's to explore with really fun long runs. Expert skiiers may find it less interesting, although the off-piste skiing was fantastic - really wide runs, often with moguls to give you a challenge. Lots of blue runs, a long blue into one of the villages, and Toussuire has a variety of runs to keep you busy for a day - check out "Snack Bar" whilst you're there - great food. Great long blue run from top of Corbier (turn left) but beware of lunching at the village at the bottom - service is shocking and slow. Hotel Mont Corbier was great - def better than a 2*. Staff friendly and food great. Ski equipment was questionable however - they appeared to run out of skis - a number of our party had skis which were too short / long! Plus they only have Salomon boots which makes it difficult if that make of boots do not fit your foot shape. Rooms were spacious and perfectly fine. Bar was cosy - lucky as that's where we spent most evenings - the apres-ski in Corbier is practically non-existant. If you want some kind of apres-ski then check out gotcha bar - very cheesy... you have been warned... They have schoolchildren in the hotel, but the staff manage them very well - meal times for the children are earlier and apart from passing them in the corridor and a couple of time where they had Karaoke in the bar, you hardly see them. Summary - good skiing, loved the off-piste, skiing in Corbier itself was terrible (dreaded the journey back everyday) but the other villages have much better snow and loads of sunshine, hotel was great and fantastic value. Great for a one-off visit and a cheap / reasonable priced holiday. Fingers crossed for more snow if you are visiting the resort in the near future.
