You can find snow in profusion and sunshine  throughout the ski area. An incredible alpine landscape  with many activities of snow, not forgetting the routes dedicated to cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

The most beautiful and typical villages were St Colomban des Villards, St Jean d ‘Arves and St Sorlin d’ Arves, whereas Le Corbier, Les Bottieres and la Toussuire were more tourist with more apartment blocks. Especially le Corbier, it was the least typical town.

Slopes:

Minimum height 1,100m. Maximum height 2,620m. Gradient 1,520m.

310km of slopes with good quality snow, many lifts, no queues and tracks of all level tracks:

30 green slopes, 61 blue, 46 red y 12 black, 6 cross-country skiing, 11 snowshoeing routes.

Is not necessary having a very good ski level to reach the more emblematick peaks, L ‘Ouillon (2431) and  Les Perrons (2620), because also the blue slopes are arriving to its.

We skied without queues during the four days we were there and practically did not repeat any slope.

Accomodation:

We stayed on a wood ground floor in the Toussuire. It was very comfortable, right next to the ski slopes.

We really left the house with skis on.

It had a pre-entry where you could take off your ski boots.
