Quiet village, pistes nowhere near as crowded as they are in neighbouring Alpe d'Huez. Some great reds (esp.Les Rousses)and a nice black called La Fare that can be a bit tricky when the snow is thin (it goes down to 1100m). There's some safe and relatively gentle off-piste ski-ing through the trees above Montfrais - and some much more challenging stuff off the Dome (2800m). If you want some authentic mountain food try restaurant Passoud (by the Alpette drag lift - half way down the slope) and for the best pizzas in the area go to La Grange (just by the mid station of the big cable car). Vaujany is a superb resort for families.
