Summary of Pros & Cons for Torgon Ski Resort

Pros

  • No crowds on a powder day or any day in the off-piste after that!!
  • Exceptionally friendly locals;
  • Great value lift passes, accommodation, food & drink;
  • Part of the Portes du Soleil, the world's largest cross border ski resort;
  • Interesting variety of piste trails for all levels;
  • Wonderful ski school;
  • When the snow is deep, challenging & extensive freeride terrain.

Cons

  • Has the appearance of a ski resort in decline;
  • Older style ski lifts throughout the entire northern section of the Portes du Soleil;
  • Low elevation base area may look deceptively green on occasions;
  • Awkward lift links with some pats of Portes du Soleil;
  • Limited ski in / ski out accommodation.

Pro or Con Depending On Your Perspective

  • Small & quiet ski resort that may or may not be everyone's cup of tea (but we love it!);
  • No retail shopping therapy available (you will just have to buy your Rolex somewhere else!);
  • Closure chairlift now requires a shuttle bus from the main village to the ski area;
  • Only 5 public buses per day from Aigle limits travel times & access.
