Great ski region and open to all (great fun for all ages - lots of ski schools and 'life' for grown ups. Memory from recent holiday was son getting to the top of a mountain and going 'left for Switzerland, right for France'! Amazing memory and accessibility. We also 'popped' (1hr 30mins) to Italy to Aosta - great place to... More

The Valais (Wallis) part of Portes du Soleil is does not have the bests slopes for beginners. I suggest you head to Les Gets instead. Further more we had a bad experience concerning the access cards: they sold us outdated ones. I had to go back to the selling booth in Champoussin and I ask them to correct their mistake,... More

A truly magnificent place, great views, friendly ski school for the kids and just enough snow in April to get out. Worth visiting and taking a day trip to France and back or conversely Switzerland and back. Thoroughly recommend this place as such a large ski area.

Great skiing area, which is very widespread and all connected by lifts. This makes it ideal to go skiing for a day and never hit the same slope twice. Compared to Austrian resorts; the lift infrastructure is a bit 'outdated' in the French parts (Swiss part eg Morgins is slightly 'newer') with a lot of tow lifts. The slope restaurant... More

This is the biggest skiing area in Europe. We skied a week without repeating the same slope too many times. There are some challenging "cross" slopes which are less crowded than the normal ones. Some of the black slopes were closed. (the steepest slope is here)

I have skied extensively in Europe and this is by far the best area. You can get everywhere from Morzine and can ski over into Switzerland for some of the best runs. Get up high if you can but be aware lifts shut on very windy days so don't get stuck! Can get busy so avoid half term and French... More

March 5th, at midday we board the lift Expresse Mosette. I now know (internet searches) that it is the second longest chair lift in Ported de Soleil over 2 km long and a crucial link between the French and Swiss side of the skiing area. It's full capacity is 160 people. After about 5-7 minutes the lift stops and does... More

Have been skiing here for last 5 years and love it. Great variety of skiing to suit all. Good value and big enough to escape the crowds. We usually stay in Chatel.
