“For Skiing, I would also highly recommend Les Contamines Montjoie, it has , in my opinion the best conditions and are a favourite among the locals, the queues are less on busy days and there are also great view of the Mont Blanc! The only negative is that it is north facing so it gets a little colder when it is windy. ”

“Cuisine traditionnelle dans un cadre typique montagnard, tenue par des "autochtones" forgés par les rigueurs de la vie locale. Approche par un sentier accessible en raquette à neige ou à pied. Descente en luge ou retour à ski possible.”
