Snowbeds says

 

Its high gaurunteed skiing this can also make for a very cold exposed resort.

Part of the huge three valleys ski circuit.Good for all standards and types of winter sport.

Its a great value resort and has value accommodation that appeals the the 20 something crowd.

Boarder cross and snow park.

Think twice about travelling with infants/young children its uncomfortable for them to deal with the pressure changes due to altitude.

About 70% of guests at the resort are non-French, with a good proportion of those being German or Dutch, thus helping to contribute to a lively atmosphere at venues.

What others say
 
From the Telegraph.
'The resort's position at the head of the Belleville Valley, surrounded by a horseshoe of dramatic peaks, is truly spectacular. On a fine day this offers a world class winter panorama. But when the weather closes in on the village, way above the treeline, it can feel a little like an Antarctic expedition.'
