Sun-soaked skiing and spectacular scenery.
- One of the sunniest resorts in the Alps with over 300 bluebird days a year.
- A great mix of slopes for all abilities, including the 16km Sarenne run that starts from the top of the 3,300m high glacier.
- Drinks are always flowing in the après bars of this lively, atmospheric resort.
On the slopes, you’ll find the longest ski run in the world, the Sarenne. Or if you’re feeling daring, try the Tunnel - a testing, steep and seemingly endless black run. Beginners can learn on easy green runs and progress to the cruisey blues close to the resort. Advanced skiers looking for more of a challenge can ski on the glacier, as well as taking on the legendarily tough black runs. The almost constant sunshine means conditions are usually good for beginners and intermediate skiers looking to build on their skill base.
Life away from the slopes is pretty exciting too, with just as much variety in terms of nightlife. If you’re up for some more relaxing activities you can take a dip in the outdoor swimming pool, or take a turn around the resort’s ice skating rink. Once the sun goes down, head out to the bars and restaurants, where you’ll find a great variety of venues to suit you and your mood. There is a big choice of accommodation too, although those looking for 5* or luxurious surroundings are recommended to book early to avoid disappointment.
New for winter 17/18, the l’Enversin connecting lift has been upgraded to an eight-seater gondola, which can fit 10 people during busy periods. The lift traverses the valley at the base of the popular La Fare black run to the village of Vaujany and its cable car.
