Lovely resort
lut 2020
Because we drove down from Wales we didn't get on the slopes until Monday. Problem no1 - no ski school. It appears to be open at weekends only. Having never worn skis before it was steep learning curve. Took a button lift up to somewhere which looked easy - ish and pointed the skis downhill. That bit was fine but when I tried to stop. My right ski dug in while the rest of me carried on. Result: right tib and fib broken in 5 places. Mont-Blanc hospital did a great job - although the food was dreadful. Moral is, try to get some lessons in the UK before you go and try to sort when the ski school will be open. PS the date below is rubbish because I went about 3 years ago.

Amazing snow - proper French resort
lut 2020 • Dla rodziny
We’ve come here now for the last four years. It is a beautiful resort. High peaks (that can get cold) that have always had great snow. Not too busy and not like a Ibiza on snow - or a Knightsbridge on ice. France’s best kept secret.

Great ski area for short breaks
lut 2020 • Znajomi
An excellent ski area with some superb runs for a short break. We are decent skiers and boarders who like to cover 30-45 miles per day. In a couple of days we had done all the runs, but enjoyed doing the best ones over and over again for the final 2 days. It’s a quiet resort and you can often find yourselves alone on the piste. There did seem to be a decent lessons/beginner scene as well. About €44 a day including rescue insurance. You will have a good time here. Quiet village life with a decent bar next to the ski lift for apres ski. This resort does not have a large pub/club scene; probably only 2-3 bars.

Beautiful Ski Resort
gru 2019
The snow and views were amazing. There are cafes located all across the mountain with coffee, hot chocolate, crepes, and more. The one drawback was that for a few days of our trip, many of the ski lifts were closed, which caused congestion around the few that were open. Because there are not normally lines for lifts, it seems like the resort was not prepared to manage them. It would be great to include a singles line, for example. Overall, we had a great trip.

Bonjour ! We thank you for your review. We are glad you appreciated the snow and view of our ski resort and also, the cafes ! For two days during the Christmas week, we had to close a big part of the ski area for safety reasons (high risk of avalanche, 4/5). Unfortunetaly, we had congestion on the few lifts opened. The quality of service is one of our priority just as much as the security and we thank you for your idea of a single line for this special situation. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts – your feedback helps us get better. We hope to see you again on our ski area, Best regards,

Fabulous snow

Great snow, small queues and lots of different levels of pistes available. Not overly busy and yet the Christmas holidays. Good value for money as had promotional tickets.

gru 2019 • Znajomi
On the first blue powder day of the year, just before new year, one would expect that the resort is in full swing ready to welcome eager skiers from all over the world.... nope.

Sadly, many ski lifts were closed, maybe for security reasons, but there was little or no communication from the lift attendants as to when or if they would reopen. As a consequence, the crowds were concentrating on the few lifts open and there, no service, no help and no line to speak of. Why can’t the ski lift attendants organise the queues so that all chairlifts are fully occupied, create a line for single skiers.... Contamines is a lovely resort and an improvement in the quality of the service is really required to make it a top class resort. Il faut améliorer le service mesdames et messieurs les perchistes! Allez voir dans les perchistes dans les autres pays.

Bonjour, During the Christmas week, we had to close a big part of the ski area for safety reasons (risk of avalanche of 4/5). Like you said, everyone were concentrated in a few lifs in a very busy week and your experience on our ski area has been affected. The quality of service is one of our priority just as much as the security and we thank you for your ideas and tips for this special situation. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts – your feedback helps us get better. We hope to see you again on our ski area, Best regards,

Gorgeous place
maj 2019 • Dla rodziny
Travelled to Les Contamines from Australia as my brother just recently purchased a small place here. We have also fallen in love with this part of the world. We arrived in mid May and although pretty much deserted with only 2 supermarkets and a chemist open we loved the stunning scenery, the peace and quite and the sound of cow bells in the distance. Enjoyed hiking and exploring the area. Cant wait to return in the ski seasin.

Quiet end of season, needs a few more signs though!
kwi 2019 • Dla rodziny
Contamines is really different to other resorts in the area. It sprawls across a vast area with some great winding pistes on each side and on the other side of the valley too.

The only downside was just visiting for the day there were virtually no signs to say the name of the lift, name of the pistes or what was in the direction you were choosing to go in when there was a split with a few different runs.

We had the Mont Blanc Unlimited pass so just visited for the day near the end of the season but will certainly return and explore the area more next time.

Last week of ski season april 2019
kwi 2019 • Dla rodziny
We had a wonderful time. Pistes are not busy at all. There is a picnic area at Signal for those who prepared their own sandwiches. There is a toilet facility at Signal. Queues to the lifts past/above Etape is almost non-existent. Staff at every lift are friendly. Free bus services always arrive earlier than the publish time which I personally prefer so better not be late 😀

Small resort
lut 2019 • Dla rodziny
The resort is small. As a group with above average ability (we do reds and some blacks), by day 2 we had done virtually every run in the whole resort!

The Pros:
Once you have got up to Signal (top of the second gondola) the runs were not busy and neither were the lifts.
At Signal there is a free indoor picnic area for eating your packed lunch.

The Cons:
The free shuttle buses around town were generally full when they arrived at our stop.
The first gondola in the village is a massive bottleneck and very busy - it generally took us 30-60 mins to get up to Signal.
Apart from at Signal, most restaurants have limited toilets!

Hello, We thank you for taking the time to share your opinion on our ski resort. We are glad that you appreciated our free indoor picnic area. During the busy period, there is usualy a line-up in the morning for the first gondola because most of the kids from ski school are there in the morning. We suggest to take the other gondola located at the Gorge where it's much faster in the morning. But as you said, once you are at the Signal it's pretty fluid everywhere. Best regards,
