Visitor Reviews of Les Contamines

Alexander De Tavernier from Belgium writes:

I have now spent 4 winter seasons in Les Contamines. It is a great place if you want to enjoy fresh powder. You can find some awesome runs without even having to hike your legs of. Of course, if you do like to climb for an hour or so, I can guarantee that you will find runs that are absolutely incredible. A large part of the resort faces north and the valley is known for getting big amounts of snow, so the chances of you getting some powpow are fairly high. If you prefer sticking to the groomed terrain, you won't be disappointed neither. Both challenging and more mellow slopes are there to be shreded. The resort does require some discovering, even after 4 years I keep on finding new spots which always blow my mind. Try to go there when you have some fresh snow, as you might have guessed by now, the free-riding is simply awesome.
