However, if you think that means the on-snow experience will be a sedate one then think again. Modern lifts whisk you up to 3,400m where dependable snow cover is waiting for you. Linked with Tignes, the area is made up of over 300km of pistes, keeping even the most mile hungry skiers occupied for a whole season. The 10,000 hectares of off piste terrain and alluring snow record satisfies backcountry addicts. Easily accessible couloirs and hidden valleys allow you to escape the crowds in an instant, and although you may feel as though you are worlds away you’re never too far from the hotel and a refreshing, well-earnt drink.
