If you want to be high in the Alps, just between Chamonix, France and Zermatt, Switzerland, and also be off the huge ski stations like Verbier, it is the place; calm, not many visitors, great off-piste from the top of the single t-bar in town (in fact three but two coming up the glacier in the same direction, leading to the small mountain restaurant, just one on the slopes!; great heli-skiing also! Mind the mountain guides - not easy to find better.

Arolla - Its at the end of a long windy road, with right-angle turns, no crash-barriers and 200m s, but its worth the drive. 4 1/2 km of button lifts drag you up to 3000m and a fantastic view. The great thing is they drag hardly anyone else up! It is so uncrowded, with good pistes, though the best bit is that the locals dont seem to want to ride off-pistes. Fine by me! It is one of my favourite resorts in the Alps - January is always half-price for lifts and pension, and the off-piste runs from the top lift back to the valley are incredible. There is always more snow here than at Verbier too and it can stay untracked for a week. If you dont mind long drags and a few hikes, the rewards are hu
