Full review

This is a lovely village from which to base a week or so skiing. Very picturesque and none of the look that purpose built ski resorts give. Very friendly locals who are beginning to speak English (that is both good and bad!). Extremely family friendly as we have been going for 8 years now starting the children in the crèche at age 4 and now both experts having been taught through the ski school. We stay in a great self catering apt right near the centre of the village and main chair lift which means once we have unloaded we don't need the car again until we leave. All very convenient. Lots of variety re pistes for all stages of skiing both in the St Sorlin bowl and across the Les Sybelles. It does lack on piste blacks and challenging slopes but it is very easy to get to safe off piste areas. Expert skiers like my son can therefore do their own thing. Nightlife in St So is limited but still has a bowling alley, bars and 2 discos as well as some restaurants. Enough variety for 2 weeks though. Highly recommended at all levels
