The ski area seems best suited for beginners on piste and those that like off-piste in a relatively safe environment. Flaine is essentially a big bowl; all the lifts take skiers up one side of it where there are then a variety of reds and blues back down.

Obergurgl is a lovely old fashioned traditional resort which is popular with families. Because the resort is high up conditions are mostly excellent, I think bad weather can be common and we had two days of quite heavy snow which made conditions challenging!

I think beginners can find some of the blue slopes challenging, but experienced skiiers may not have enough to do. A visit to the nederhutte is ...
