The village runs are wide, gentle and south facing. The very easy slopes on the glacier mean that even beginners can experience the atmosphere at high altitude.
A perfect resort for go-for-it intermediates, who should be able to cover almost the whole area of marked pistes. The upper slopes provide optimum practice, with good quality snow and gentle runs.
Experts can revel in the extensive off-piste opportunities. Further possibilities include the renowned blacks of nearby Alpe d’Huez; go for the pose and get there by helicopter! Also the entirely off-piste area of neighbouring La Grave is worth a visit.
