My experience was better than I could have imagined. I didn't have to worry about anything other than showing up in Oulx with my ski boots! Simon, our guide, was excellent, totally competent, and easy-going. We spent time in the best ski areas in beautiful, small French towns. Our accommodations and food were also top notch. I'd highly recommend Azimut.
