Les Houches was quiet as were the pistes so there was plenty of room. The skiing was great and is better suited to early intermediates. I found the blue slopes were a bit too narrow and icy for beginners though. The pistes conditions were o.k. The kandahar run was brilliant and would probably be the only reason I would go back as it was probably the most enjoyable run I've ever done. I would recommend this resort for a long weekend as it's only about an hour and a half from Geneva airport at most.
