It's a different driver now fwiw. Obviously I've only seen teh uplift through whiteroom guest eyes, and it was more than adequate- I'd kill for the same back here! We did 3 runs, dropoffs in 2 different areas, some pedalling to access the trails... I could definitely do more riding in a day, mind, we didn't rush at any point but it didn't feel like we were waiting about either. Absolutely no bad riding and some phenomenal.
But I do reckon a chairlift resort probably makes more sense. We always seem to waste a lot of time at les arcs commuting between lifts, mind, a lot of the riding isn't that quick to access from bourg.
Did I mention La Thuile is amazing?
