Tips from Pat Flisher on Orelle

Orelle is more of a base than a resort. There is one large apartment complex with a swimming pool, spa and restaurant plus some smaller ones and gites spread through the various hamlets but that is about it. However, for easy access, both in terms of driving there and for the slopes it is ideal. Not only can you match the time from Val Thorens to the upper slopes you can visit all the other resorts in the Maurienne valley very easily (at a much lower cost than the 3Vs). A snowy day in VT can be bleak, in La Norma in the trees it can be fun and half price.
