The upper village is an apartment only accomodation area. There isn't a great deal to do off the slopes, although it does have an ice rink and dog sled rides.

The snow is fairly reliable and the snow making has increased. The lifts are slow and old and the resort suffers from overcrowding during the French holidays.
