Are you looking for a resort with more charm than many of the large modern ski areas? We recommend Sorlin d’Arves. This resort is located at the foot of the Col de la Croix de Fer, and is an authentic French mountain village with a great traditional atmosphere. In recent years it has been updated with new lifts, hotels and bars, whilst still maintaining its charm. It has become increasingly more popular with skiing enthusiasts.
St. Sorlin d’Arves is part of the large Les Sybelles ski area. This also includes the resorts La Toussuire, Le Corbier and St.Jean d’Arves. The area has over 310km of ski slopes, comprised mostly of red and blue runs. This means that it is well suited for intermediate skier/snowboarders. For cross country skiers there is also around 42km of different trails.
There are plenty of options here for non skiers too. The two bars Le Barock and Saint S’O are well known for their great après ski atmosphere. There is also a spa and the opportunity to go on snow shoe walks.
