Perfect
Les Bottières may not be the first choice for advanced skiers seeking adrenaline-pumping challenges. The resort primarily caters to beginners and intermediates, with a majority of its slopes being green and blue. While there are a few red runs, the lack of black pistes and off-piste opportunities may leave advanced skiers wanting more.

Les Bottières is a great fit for snowboarders, especially those who prefer a more relaxed and laid-back environment. The resort offers a variety of slopes, from gentle ones for beginners to more challenging ones for experienced boarders. The resort's unique feature is its link to the larger Sybelles ski area, providing snowboarders with access to a vast terrain to explore and enjoy.

Off-pistes rating -
Fun
Perfect
Les Bottières may not be the first choice for freeriders as it's a smaller resort with a focus on family-friendly, groomed runs. However, its connection to the larger Sybelles ski area opens up more possibilities for off-piste exploration. The resort's higher altitude areas offer some opportunities for freeriding, but it's the access to the vast Sybelles terrain that will truly appeal to off-piste enthusiasts.

The après-ski scene at this resort is more on the tranquil side, perfect for those who prefer a relaxed atmosphere after a day on the slopes. You can enjoy a quiet drink at the local bar, Le Bar du Soleil, or indulge in a hearty meal at the restaurant, La Grange à Pizzas.
