Les Coches is north-facing and has a number of snow-making machines so almost guaranteeing snow way beyond Easter. You can ski or snowboard back to the village and there are some great runs home to Les Coches. Pistes such as “Dos Rond” and “Leschaux” above the tree line can be very good for the ego before choosing between several blues and reds through the trees to get you home.
