Visitor Reviews of Saint François Longchamp
Steve Taylor from France writes:
I am fed up with so called experts running down resorts. I am 57 years old, have been skiing since I was 12 and have skied in excess of 35 resorts and Saint Francois Longchamp is very good. I am a qualified instructor in many aspects of the sport. Another reviewer needs to decide if the black leading off to the left, from the Luziere chair, just after a fresh fall, is challenging enough or they would rather have a top class night club where he can go on the piss until 2.00am. Make your mind up!
SFL and the Grand Domaine are very good; it is good for all standards. Skiing isn't about screaming down a few slopes as fast as you can but is an experience of the environment and the joy of sliding in control and enjoying yourself. I feel that the facilities for absolute beginners, although adequate, could improve. However, once you have mastered the basics the next step at SFL is very good. Wide green slopes enabling travel and technique improvement. High blues and a gentle decent are there if you want it. There are a couple or three of the long serving instructors who need to update their teaching techniques to take into account the change that has happened with the advances in equipment. For those who have skied maybe one or two weeks, before you can enjoy the Grand Domaine even further, improve your confidence and ability plus enjoyment with 'you' time on the snow.
The dammers at SFL work very hard to prepare your slopes to their best and are better prepared than the Valmorel side of the mountain.
If your idea of skiing is going on the piss until 2.00am or until you can't see, then this is not the resort for you. If you want to enjoy mountains, mountain life, enjoying the resort ambiance, developing your skiing and improving it and travelling in an area of 165 kilometres and what it offers then it is definitely for you. I can drive to pretty much anywhere from where I live in France but I will drive to SFL 1650 on Saturday.
