Pros: The French Swiss Ski College

Cons: Limited Vertical Drop

I took my son here for a one hour private lesson and some skiing with dad and friends.  As usual, the staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and flexible.  My son is now a "skier".  Highly recommended for beginners and intermediates.  Decent terrain park, and usually has the best late season coverage, last to close perennially.  One thing to note is that they do charge for parking.  Last season it was one dollar.
