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.
