The French resort is also known as Ubaye and has common misspellings:

The direction which the various Le Sauze/Super Sauze slopes face can make or break your ski holiday. To guarantee good snow conditions, choose a resort with piste which face the right way for the time of year you're travelling.

- In the coldest winter months of January and February pick a resort with sunny south facing slopes, so your days on the snow doesn't feel like a polar expedition.

The best destinations have areas which face in all directions so that you're guaranteed greating conditions whatever the weather. Le Sauze/Super Sauze has slopes facing N.
