We had a nice trip. Unfortunately one of us fell en had to skip 1 day. The guide Olivier is very professional, knows the area well en is high skilled. Thereby he is a nice guy and wel had good talks and laughs. He brought us to some simple but very good auberges and we had lovely meals, accompanied with good wine.

Obviously the terrain is huge, so there is always a way to go. The Guides will bring you the best of the top class off track resort. Every orientation is possible, every steepness, every kind of run. But be sure to be with a guide, only they know where to bring you at the good time, know how to get back to the resort after your run. They even can take you around if by any (bad) chance you can't find the pow in Alpe d'Huez, but I doubt it...
