I've stayed in the Alpazur, via Snowcoach, several times. Nowadays, with 4 grown up sons we self drive/train and stay in Les Balcons de Val Cenis village up in Lanslevillard. I love Val Cenis, it's unpretentious, pretty, and you can ski a significant distance. Now going back for the 7th time in the last 20 years, which proves how much we love it.
