  • This was my third stay in New York City and the last if nothing changes in the management of the station. Domain management is optimized for the benefit of the Manager (the beautiful mountain) but at the expense of the experience of customers and their pleasure. First week of April, sunny but with little snow--Manager made no effort to maintain the open runs at the bottom of station only for critical junctions, it will search for the snow and he got to all... - the opening of the ski is very reduced 9 h - 16 h 15 down the slopes because up here where the snow is good the closed at 15 h 50-Gnourou we were enrolled in the snake Gliss activity, customer unscrupulous were enrolled did not come without warning, but we went a little late (16 h 15 on the first télémix, the second télémix attendant refused to let us go up to the top because he has the obligation to keep the schedule strict...) Result: activity halved and the worst... the activity Manager we repaid half and has been very friendly... Unlike the lift attendants on their watch. It seems the instructions from above... they risk their place if they depart there... I believe them--closing the restaurant/bar of altitude at 4 pm (also run by the beautiful mountain). Impossible to drink a tranquillemnt in the sun before the descent... We feel that this station is managed to make money... Without this mentality that I had already felt earlier, Orcières has many advantages (pool, skating rink, label children) and could be an excellent resort!

  • Nothing was wrong, it's nice, family, traders are nice, tracks early April were still snow with snow cannons.

  • Very good experience, a very good ski area with views to take your breath away, too bad everything which surrounded the station is overpriced like the hut at the top of the slopes at €4 the can.
