P

art of the extensive 4 Vallées area with access to some of the world's best and most accessible off-piste. The resort is best for intermediates and above since the only run back down is a red (although you can take the gondola back down after a day on the blue runs at Thyon 2000). The Printse area lift pass includes Haute-Nendaz, Veysonnaz, and Thyon/Les Collons but not Verbier and Mont Fort - although this is probably sufficient because it takes around 3 hours to get from Veysonnaz to Col des Gentianes.
