Les Collons - what a surprise, a small village that has it all - restaurants, supermarket, ski shops and bars. But best of all linked to 410km of piste in the 4 Valleys, which some say is the best skiing in the Swiss Alps. Why ski Verbier, when there is some unbelievable off piste runs at your door step and uncrowded. Most accommodation (chalet style) is within 50 meters of the quad chair Trabanta and then you're on your way.

Thyon 2000/Les Collons/Les Masses You'll have a hard time finding a better place to enjoy winter sports than Thyon-Région having great snow from November to April it is a skiers and boarders dream. The Val d’Herens is located in the heart of the Swiss alps on the Eastern side of the four valleys system one of the largest ski regions in Europe. The area has over 400 kms of pistes and 100 ski lifts that seamlessly link - Thyon, Veysonnaz, Nedaz and Verbier. There really is something for everyone, Thyon 2000 has wide open sunny slpoes for beginners and more challengin slopes for the intermediate and advance, including large areas of off piste the Billabong board park with nursery slop

No waiting at the lifts No negative aspects!

Het piste aanbod van Les Quatre vallees is super en tot nu toe tussen januari en half maart zeer sneeuwzeker gebleken. Rondom het dorp Les Collons liggen veel makkelijke pistes wat ideaal is voor gezinnen. Verderop in het gebied liggen uitdagingen voor iedereen. Nadeel is dat door enkele trage sleepliften de verbinding met Verbier toch al snel een uur skien is (voor geoefende skier). De hoeveelheid trage liften is zowiezo een nadeel hoewel er zeker verbetering is met liften als de Trabanta en de nieuwe cabine vanuit Veysonnaz. De prijstelling van de skipassen is gelijk aan de Franse en Oostenrijkse: voor gezinnen is er veel korting. Dorp is gezellig maar heeft zeer beperkte apres ski mogelij

We stayed in the Chalet-hamlet Les Masses. Its really nice and quiet but not for those who aim to go out for dinner or apres-ski. The resort is linked to Quattre Vallées, but the connection to Verbier is a bit awkward: youll need at least one hour. The Thyon-Printze part isnt by far as high profile as Verbier-Mont Fort. This has an upside too: prices are a lot cheaper and the area is generally quiet. I havent seen a queue anywhere (but we werent there during the holidays). The area doesnt have much difficult skiing, so thrill seekers will have to head to Verbier. For the more relaxed skiing the area offers a lot of blue and red cruising-runs. The Piste de lOurs is really nice, as is the run
