Visitor Reviews of Le Mont-Dore

alan bainbridge from United Kingdom writes:

My wife and I are both retired but enjoy our skiing. We have skied in Le Mont Dore for the past few years and have found it perfect for our needs. The people are really friendly and the ski staff are very helpful. Lift passes are very reasonable and flexible. The town, itself, is very good for shopping and, again, the people are very friendly.

We have a property near Bellac so travelling to the resort takes around two hours using mostly motorways. If you need other Brits around you, you will be disappointed. This is mostly a French ski resort but we have found everyone friendly on and off the piste.

As a retired ski coach, I can recommend Mont Dore to all levels but it is especially good for beginners and intermediates.
