Visitor Reviews of Besse Super Besse

Dave Fraser from France writes:

We went to BSB early Feb 2013; 5 hours from house in Angouleme. Weather brilliant, skiing was good, but only enough runs for 2-3 days. We had a camper van but the facilities were poor. The ski hire and pass people were great, the swimming pool manager was unhelpful so we didn't use the pool. Could have done with a sauna/shower area.
But all in all it was good. (Better than Aviemore, Scotland).
I would probably go back for the day but need to get there real early or you have to park miles away.
