Fairly small but nice typically French (not many English speakers around) resort. Links to Valloire to give a decent amount of runs. Stayed with Snowcoach in Hotel L'Aigle which was good for the price and more importantly for me right on the slopes. The runs aren't extreme with lots of greens, blues and reds but there was enough to explore in the four days there. Friendly people and not too busy. I was there for the last week in Feb which was still school holidays over there and it was a little busy first thing, but after a while everyone spread out and the queues were fine. Saturday was changeover day and was very quiet. Overall, a good family resort with something for everyone.
