Visitor Reviews of Besse Super Besse

Antoine from France writes:

The best ski resort at less than 4 hours from Paris (much better than the Vosges or the Jura).
Tracks are quite easy but steep enough to get some real good fun. The new speed lifts allow you to warm your thighs by getting on the top in 5 min!
The connection to Mont Dore, when the weather is nice, allows you to try one of the best places for extreme free-ride skiing in Europe.
