Les Contamines is one of those hidden gems in the Alps. Very quiet, even in school holidays and excellent snow. Great for family and groups. Not extreme at all with plenty of wide open pistes, but also plenty of off piste if you know where to go. Add to that the fact you can take a little train ride over to Les Houches in the Chamonix valley for a cracking day out makes this a great place to stay.

Family/child friendly No negative aspects!

Ive just got back from Les Contamines, which was a great resort for intermediate type ski-ing with a reasonable amount of variety and holding its snow well, especially compared to neighbouring resorts. Mainly French people (or possibly from Geneva too) and quite a few Dutch, but not many English voices! For any keen campers out there, I actually stayed with my boyfriend (who is French) in his caravan(!) in a campsite just by the Pontets gondola. It was not as horrendous as it sounds, and certainly anyone with a Motorhome particularly would find it ok. It was a five-minute walk to the gondola lift in the morning and is a dead cheap way to do it. I was horrified when he first suggested taking

We have experienced the superb snow record in les contamines for the last ten years and it has become reknown for good snow when other higher resorts have failed. the resort has never failed to impress us with the superb mixture of pistes for all abilities and amazing variety of off piste. it is not a high mileage resort but quality counts. a real bonus is that the local people are much more friendly than other resorts we have visited.
