Les Houches reviews

Les Houches is an excellent resort for families, it has big wide slopes, not busy, very little queuing, if any and a good mix of runs so beginners and intermediates get a challenge and a men's downhill black run. The scenery is quite fantastic. The town is quiet, but we've found restaurants we like, enough for a couple of night's out. Nearby Chamonix provides more apres ski activities. Lift pass includes bus to the lifts so not too much walking in your ski boots.
