Full review

We did the half term week. Overall, we had a nice family break. We are average skiers but like to explore. On the positives, there is a good range of slopes and an option to visit another town in the valley for a day with your ski pass (Bonneval was a good day trip to get up to 3000m). Up high, the slopes are broad and slide well. It’s north facing, so you need to expect some ice in the mornings. The queues are manageable as well, and you can plot a path to avoid the busy areas. On the negatives, as others have said, really hard to even find a cafe for a morning coffee, everyone converges on Solent restaurant for lunch (expect queues) and in Lanseburg, where we were, the main problem is that to get down everyone converges down the left hand red run. This is very cut up by the afternoon and the slower skiers get attacked by lots of fast skiers. Overall, we had some of the more negative experiences we’ve seen from teenage local school groups being very inconsiderate and actually quite dangerous on some of the narrow ‘road’ runs back down from the top. Overall, we enjoyed it, but I’m not sure we’d put it on our ‘again list’, mainly due to that people experience
