It’s hard to say for sure exactly where Les Crosets begins or ends….at least two days wasn’t enough for me to get firm bearings. But Les Crosets is one of the areas on the Swiss side of the huge Les Portes du Soleil region. Surrounded by a big open bowl of above-treeline terrain, it’s a dramatic setting. The “fun facts” on the overview page here list Les Crosets as 51% beginner terrain, 39% intermediate, 10% expert, and 0% double black diamond. That’s a bit misleading, as it likely refers only to marked pistes, and not to the huge area of off-piste terrain, which offers lots of opportunity. I skied a great gully near the Grande Conche chair, for example, that was nestled between two broad pistes. Kind of nice if you are skiing in a group of mixed ability or appetites….it’s easy for the adventurous to drop into a bowl or gully, while others can stick to the pistes and still end up in the same place. A long chair from Les Crosets will take you to the Pointe de Mossette summit, at 2277m. From there you can either return to Les Crosets in Switzerland, or venture on towards Avoriaz on the French side. Les Portes du Soleil is a huge complex, so pay close attention to the map as you venture further afield from your starting point. Since the piste map covers such a huge area, it's not very detailed. When it’s time to head home, you may find yourself baffled. And do not expect a lot of slack when it comes to lift closing times….many people in my ski club had stories of people getting stranded on the mountains somewhere! ... Full Review
