Le Corbier is the perfect resort for families and beginner to intermediate skiers. Beginners will be well suited to the terrain, with lots of greens and blues for building up technique. Intermediates will be well served with a great selection of cruisey blues and reds. Advanced skiers may have to look harder to find challenging runs and off-piste powder descents to keep them busy during a week of skiing.
