If other snow sports are more your bag, you’ll also find it easy to access cross-country skiing routes, snow-shoe routes and areas ideal for snowboarding.
A great selection of restaurants and bars offer everything from traditional alpine cuisine to pizza and more luxurious French haute cuisine. Top rated restaurant Hors Piste is a great option for a special evening out, while Le Tetras, on the slopes, offers a good selection of salads, burgers and other lunch options.
