Connections to the Espace Killy are excellent; take a gondola followed by a four man chair lift. There is a choice of 3 runs back into resort, all north facing, a blue, red and black run which end right into the village and keep their snow well into May! There is a beginner slope serviced by a button lift in the village and two restaurants at the foot of the pistes, both are great for lunch and a vin chaud!!
