From: Anne about Les Gets

Les Gets is a lovely town with lots of ski-in, ski-out shops, hotels and restaurants

Visited Les Gets earlier this year and loved exploring the shops and restaurants that are conveniently located right next to the slopes. Nice wide pistes, perfectly groomed. Cosy après-ski scene next to the pistes. Most accommodation is within walkin...

Sunny Morzine

We had heard loads about the skiing in Morzine but weren't expecting such a beautiful little town - that was a nice bonus. The clientele was largely British, which also helped - no communication problems like in some other French towns! And of course...

From: Mick about La Chapelle d'Abondance

La Chapelle is a fantastic family ski resort. It's well-connected as part of the Portes du Soleil so the expert skier in the family can easily find more challenging runs. It's still a working village so most food is locally sourced by the restaurants...

Access to the best ski area in Europe

I've been this year for the third time to Les Portes du Soleil, and this time we stayed in Morzine. The ski area is without doubts one of the best in Europe (in my opinion the best). The area is huge, I stayed for three weeks in Portes du Soleil this...

Access to a huge ski area

I've been to Champery a couple of times already and I don't want to go to any other resort. The ski area linked to Champery is huge, I usually go for a week at a time and I hardly ski the same run twice. The cool thing about this ski area is that you...

Châtel is a nice resort with great skiing

Having worked one winter season in Chatel i can call myself an expert and even at the end of the season I was still not bored with the area. Really beautiful area but it is true that the ski lifts are old-fashioned compared to other ski areas in ...

Chatel is a nice resort with great skiing

Chatel is one resort where you never get bored of the ski area. One of the most beautiful areas in france even if the lifts are a bit old and slow. No-one's perfect!

We love the Portes du Soleil

The Portes du Soleil seems to have infinite slopes, wherever you go! Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned skier, you'll find your dream slopes here. For freestylers there are more than enough options, the choice of snow parks is great - Gary our t...

Great snow parks and endless slopes

Morzine is one of my favourite ski resorts. Some of the best skiing and snowboarding can be foud here - great choice from the 8 snow parks in the Portes du soleil. Star wars, Prolays and the Stash are the best. This seems the ideal ski resort for all...

Chatel is a great choice for the whole family

The advantage of the Portes du Soleil, of which Chatel is one of the gateways, is that you have a variety of amazing pistes to choose from. But do not be fooled: from Châtel, even skiing really well, you can not go to the other end of the ski area to...

Great resort for a family ski holiday as everything is easy to access

Great doorstep skiing which made this ski holiday really stress free - although you have to be careful to get the right lift back to the resort or you could walk quite a way! Nice family holidays spent here - kids loved the snowy streets and horse sl...

Lovely resort right in the middle of the Portes du Soleil - excellent skiing

Ski resort full of charm, some great facilities for young kids and a calm nightlife which meant we weren't kept awake all night (like in some resorts). Skiing was just excellent - goes without saying I guess!

Really fantastic all round resort with skiing for all levels and tons of atmosphere

The skiing here is just superb - we heard everyone talking about the famous 'Wall' slope, with huge moguls - we're good skiers but not quite that good! Apparenty it's awesome! The ski and snow parks here are great fun for all the family, with jumps,...

You'll never find another ski resort like this one!

The pedestrian centre is really bizarre to start with - when you arrive, you have to carry your luggage to your accommodation on a sledge! Even though there are a lot of high apartment blocks, I actually really felt at home here and the high building...

Pedestrian resort with some wonderful skiing

On first impression, this ski resort seemed a bit ugly and modern but once you get used to the many large apartment blocks, it actually has a rather cozy feeling about it. You don't see any cars, just horse sleighs and skiers in the centre - it's a ...

Cracking resort for beginners and apres-ski
