Full review

I have been doing self drive skis holidays for over 25 years with children and now also with grandchildren so am used to mountain roads. I found the drive up to this resort trying! It was perfect weather conditions in daylight. The access road is narrow with a lot of blind switchback bends (yes I appreciate its a mountain road!). At one particular point near the bottom of the road there is a problem as the road is narrow and you may have to reverse to let coaches through - it happened to us on the way up and on the way down so it was obviously not a one off and it caused a traffic jam - I hate to think how it would have been in snow. I have scanned loads of reviews and cannot see any mention of poor access. The resort is lovely with a family feel. As the grandkids were in ski school we didn't get chance to ski any of the other connecting resorts. We had picked a residence at the top end of the resort near ski school meeting point but the ski school meeting point was moved to the lower part of the resort which meant either a bus ride or ski down so check before you book the accommodation! The group kids lessons are only two hours which means there isn't much time to do much skiing before heading off to pick them up. The skiing I managed to get in was great - although it was end of March there was plenty on snow on the pistes and it was well groomed although obviously was soft early afternoon so we went bowling and did a bit of snowshoeing.
