Our Top 5…
The Swiss WallThe popular Swiss Wall, one of the Ports du Soleil’s well known runs is the place for more advanced skiers who thrive on challenges and think of themselves as a bit of a daredevil. You can tackle the moguls and build up speed nearer the bottom (without falling down several times we hope).
It is 1km long and drops 400 metres and the top of the run is so steep that you’re unable to see the face of the slope while standing at the stop. Snow conditions contribute massively to how challenging skiers find this run but anyone taking on the Swiss wall should remember confidence is key.
Explore more slopes!We all know the Portes du Soleil is one of the largest ski areas in the world but it’s also one of the resorts where you get more piste for your money. Lift passes give you access to 650km of pistes, now surely thats more than enough snow to cover during your trip?
You can get a pass for one week for around 280 euros per adult which is quite reasonable for major ski area, make sure you give your legs a little break though.
