Overall

We had an Easter break in Torgon 2007 to give my Daughter and her Husband some skiing which they would not have been able to afford otherwise! We stayed in Les Cretes Apartments which are very 60s but perfectly adequate. Getting there is a bit difficult unless you hire a car. We flew into the French side of Geneva (don't believe the people who say always fly into the Swiss side) and picked up a Fiat Sedici 4x4 which proved useful - we had ski racks and GPS as extras but chains come as standard. I also bought the Swiss Motorway Pass on the net in the UK. A long drive up from Lake Geneva up the usual twisty mountain road. The Village is very small but has some good and not expensive Restaurants plus a small but well stocked Supermarket. There are 2 Lifts, one in the Village and one further out (car comes in handy) The nearest Lift is very low altitude and often shut at the start and finish of the Season. We used the far Lift and it gave access when we were there to vast areas of fresh powder (it dumped all day on the Monday) and one is spoilt for choice. Although Torgon is part of the Portes du Soleil access to other parts of it is not easy, not helped by a pretty rubbish Piste Map. If you want a quiet holiday with high skiing miles then Torgon is pretty good - Oh Yes when the sun shines the views of Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc are spectactular.

Overall

We went to Torgon in March 2009. All the lifts were open, although the snow was melting alarmingly fast! Pros - Low Cost, empty runs were absolute heaven, small and friendly resort, shorter commute from airport than many other resorts. Cons - Inaccessibility of PdeS area; many resorts need a bus to access or a hike through, the number of T bars and buttons :( This isn’t a good resort for people just starting out; the only run down to the village is a steep, often icy red; once you go over the mountain there are two lifts and a T bar to choose from: the T bar is 7 minutes long (but leads to a lovely area) one chairlift takes you back to Torgon side, the other has a steep red back, or if you go the other way a there’s a long journey home, as you have to do a very long loop.
