Perfect
Villaroger is not the best choice for beginners. The resort is known for its challenging terrain and lack of beginner-friendly slopes. While there are ski schools available, the limited number of easy runs and the resort's reputation for being steep and challenging make it less suitable for those new to skiing.

Intermediate skiers will find Villaroger a suitable destination with its variety of red and blue pistes. The Aiguille Rouge cable car provides access to a range of challenging descents, while the Lys chairlift leads to a selection of more gentle, scenic runs. However, it's worth noting that the resort is part of a larger ski area, so intermediates can also explore the wider network of slopes for more variety and challenge.
