I've skied first week of April in Courchevel for the last three years. Conditions have been great and slopes pretty quiet. Even had a powder day last year. You'll love it - Val Thorens will be much busier.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

@FFIRMIN, there's a useful set of videos on YouTube showing you how to set it up which may help.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

@Jake43, if you speak with Martin at ski mojo (phone no on website) he may have some suggestions re engaging your right leg and broken bracket. I've had a couple of issues which he's sorted. If he doesn't pick up leave message, he'll call back.

@Merch.Y.Mynydd, you're welcome. As @tomj, says plenty of skiing in Courchevel area and snow there keeps better than Meribel/ Mottaret in my opinion. You can buy the passes at the lift office and still get family pass.

Covers 1300 Le Praz too - some good runs down to there when the snow's good. Sheltered by the trees too so handy if it's snowing or windy.
After all it is free Go on u know u want to!

@Raven, that almost happened to me - just managed to intercept the dozy culprit. Cut up a VERY bright ladies floral scarf into strips and tied them to the handles of my luggage. Problem solved - do get some odd looks from time to time but so what.
Then you'll get to see more forums.

I've used the Speedzone 12. I'm 6 foot, heavyish and a bit older. Brilliant piste ski and not bad in the soft stuff either. Take the money and buy them for yourself :lol: :lol:

That's the point of the duo and tribu discount. Same dates, same ski area and one payment method - cuts down on their admin and staffing I guess- hence the discount. However, if one wants Carre Neige and the rest don't you are allowed to do that.

It's called a Slippin and you can buy online for around £10. It's actually quite good and stronger and more slippery than a carrier bag. Obviously not needed by those experts such as @under a new name, who have mastered their 'proper technique ' but for lesser mortals such as myself it can help.

I used Dynastar Speedzone 12 ti's for 3 days last April. Loved them. Handled all April conditions ice bumps slush really well - even a cheeky bit of off piste as we had 6 inches overnight. Worked for me anyway- didn't want to give them back.

I usually get there around 7am and never waited more than 5 minutes. Coming back mid afternoon have waited up to 10 minutes- bus can be rammed but all seem to get on.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

If it was me I'd get an appointment at Rivington Alpine (very highly spoken of on this forum) asap - not a million miles from you. Hopefully a couple of stretches and some custom footbeds will sort you out. Be sure to let us know how you get on.

Used it last week - it works as@ski, says. It's same distance from North terminal as the long stay. I've used a few times- it's always been fine. They record the mileage when you drop off so you'll know if they've been to Cornwall and back in your absence.

Get yourself to a boot fitter - plenty in U.K. and plenty recommended on this forum - just depends where you are. May just need a couple of tweaks - would say get it done before you go.

That's right - to get the duo or tribu you either pay on one card or one cash payment.

Make sure the bag meets their hand luggage size specifications. If they ask what's in the bag (unlikely) just say clothes. I've done it many times thru Geneva. @king key, you can't wear them as you could use them as a weapon. You can however bring a glass bottle onto the plane as long as you buy in the duty free shop. I guess duty free glass isn't dangerous!!
You know it makes sense.

Wasn't worth waiting for Ski Sunday anyway- pathetic coverage unfortunately. Fantastic result and no fluke either - he's been building steadily.

As @Sunshine81, said Crystal will get you there. Used Chambery once and vowed never again as it was chaos. However a ski pal uses it every time and she rarely has trouble and has a shorter transfer than me. If only they had a 'Crystal ' ball😊😊
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Summer Special is same distance as Long Term i.e. 5 minutes. .difference is you leave your keys and they move to another car park while you're awAy. Used it a few times without problems - never been more than a couple of miles put on the odometer.

@CAPTA1N P, there were issues with the clips on a version of the mojo - see earlier in this thread. If you call Martin at ski-mojo he'll sort you out - he was very helpful when I had a different issue a while back.
