La Toussuire Ski Resort
With 310km of linked slopes, La Toussuire is a great value option for a French ski holiday.
Most of the visitors to La Toussuire and the rest of the Les Sybelles ski area tend to be French, but more Brits are discovering this great value region of French Alps. Most of the terrain, linked with Le Corbier, is rated blue and red, but there's a great learning zone on the edge of the village and a number of steeper challenges, especially after fresh snow when the area's off piste comes into its own. The lift system has improved in recent years, with a number of new lifts, but more fast chairs would be welcome – there's still a lot of slow chairs and drags.
The resort is fairly high-rise in terms of architecture, with large apartment blocks dominating the skyline. This means there's loads of very affordable self-catered accommodation, but it does mean that the resort is not the most picturesque. Off the slopes, there's lots of snowshoe trails, some cross country routes and decent dining options.
