Good extent of ski area, good for all levels - from beginners to more challenging runs for intermediates/advanced. Did the Tunnel (powder & bumps) but the Sarenne was not open. Some of the blue runs more like reds in places, and some of the black runs more like reds. However, pistes could be better groomed after a fresh dump of snow; didn't see many piste bashers about. Generally the resort is very expensive with £ to Euro exchange rate, and avoid mountain restaurants located at central gondola points since these were even more of a rip off (£7 for a hot chocolate). Overall, a good resort and wish I was there for the great snow next week.
