Apres Ski: 5/5
Large ski area, yep, Great snow record, yep, Cheap food in resort / mountain, yep, Cheap drink in resort / mountain, yep - Ski in / ski out, yep (from certain locations). Pretty village, yep, Scenic mountain, yep, Short transfer, yep, Affordable packages, yep Sauze really has it all. The ONLY down point is really the lift system... there are no high speed bubbles from Sauze and you can spend quite a while on the chairs getting about. Also there is NO lift of any kind in the snow park!! The runs are not challenging but are fun and there is plenty access to off-piste. Hard to beat.
