Hi. I am looking for advice for a hotel/resort for a long weekend in December. The group would consist of two adult and two 4 year old girls, it's there first ski holiday but all four are planning ski lesons in a fridge. Direct flights from Manchester/Birmingham area would be a bonus with short transfers to resort. Size of area very low priority but good nusers areas. A luxury hotel with a pool and good food is a must. Ski in out/next to the lift is also a must. The altapura in val thorens ticks a lot of boxes unfortunately I thinks it's a bit long transfers for 3-4 nights. Any other recommendations welcome.

The car rental company charged me more to take the car out of Switzerland (zurich to st anton). It wasn't much but just another hidden charges from them😠

Just back from doing Zurich to st anton. The drive itself was no problem. Only problem was we booked sarrent car hire through a price comparison for zurich airport. The car depot was 15km away and was a pick up drop off shuttle that was a shambles. We also had to pay extra as we where driving out of Switzerland. I would drive again but pay more attention to the small print.
And they're a friendly bunch.

You have a valid point, but for me personally it does NOT make much difference between geneva, innsbruck or salzburg for flying. But the opener initially asked for help with accommodation and he was "ideally" looking at austria. :lol:

+1 for austria. nice short transfers. the few times we have done this (Ischgl and St anton), we found finding hotels on ski area web site easiest and largest selection.

Can't remember exact prices (5 years ago) but I did think they where a rather more expensive to rent there compared to Europe (ischgl St anton etc) but the gear was top notch and where flexible to change skis for weather change. But be quick if there is fresh snow for better chance to try exactly what you want. As said above they often have a tent up on whistler mountain for you to try different skis free of charge. Personally I wouldn't dream on getting on a plane for a winter holiday without my skis whether for a weekend or a few months.

Cant comment on nevis or glencoe but between the lecht, aviemore/cairngorm and glenshee its glenshee all the way. I have been up the last two Saturdays and found the same as ravelin, parking no problem and very little queues to complain about. I like the location exit of the new chair lift its not the easiest of terrain so limits the queue for the lift. Only issue was the queue in the main café at half 12 but is this really a major problem??? Also a big thumbs up to the glenshee lifties/staff very pleasant and help you when they can.

Peter42. Added your chalet to favourites will have a look later. Not 100% sure on resort as I have only been to 3v and espace'killy in france. But priority is 2 toddlers, 2 adults with no experience and grand parents who would not be skiing. 2 dogs (poodle & labradoodle) Private possibly catered chalet v close to resort and hills. Easy skiing resort with excellent toddler ski school and cafes. Would also like pool. Apre/night life not important. If I am high jacking this thread to much let me know I will start a new one.

Your apartment looks v nice but I think we need something bigger. 8 people plus 2 dogs. It's for next year but will start a new thread later on for a good resort as I am not familiar with the French resorts. Thanks again.

I was very impressed with the max4 approx 4 years ago. Brilliant on a powder day as que jumped. Not sure if they still offer a unlimited ticket for season, financially it broke even after 10 days. Just turn up morning or lunch time at a designated spot on whistler or blackcomb mountain and join in, no pre booking. Different instructor every day but very high level of teaching.

I had the old Bolle modulator lense (can't remember the frame model) approx 4 years ago and was very impressed with the system, only reason I changed was I scratched the lense.

Aewynia. Depends on airlines, haven't traveled easyjet (with skis) for a couple of years but had a quick look on easyjet site, one normal suitcase was £42 return or a ski bag was £60 return (not sure about weight). If you wanted a suitcase and ski bag would cost £102. Weight of a pull along ski bag 2.5-4.5kg plus skis plus skis poles plus boots etc fairly adds up. I usually need a standard "free" pull along suitcase into cabin to stay under weight limit for checked in baggage. Theirs no simple answer as airlines are constantly changing baggage allowance and all are different dimensions weights etc.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

I really like the pull along ski bags and have managed to get all my things within allocated baggage allowance on ba lufthansa etc and only paid for one ski bag on budget airline. Between my ski bag and and my cabin pull along I have found 3 weeks holiday for myself no problem. My current bag is a ice mountain which has fell apart after 8 holidays, very lite made I think less than 3kg but it hasn't lasted. I am eyeing up the Scott wheeled pull along (if anybody has any input I would be grateful) for a replacement.

Adam_Libertine, Adam, first off i'm bloody Jealous!!!! I went out for a month 2 years ago and used a british company seasonit.co.uk maybe worth booking the first month with them until you get your bearings then get something else after. I am planning a month or two at the end of season but most likely Europe. If you do book with seasonit explain what you are looking for ie age no work etc as they try and offer you chalet to suit you needs. I wish I booked snowbird lodge as they were all out just to ski every day and not work but I was in chalet bon ami which was a younger pre university age group but they all worked most days so nobody to go out riding with. I found most people out for the season where more into house partys as it was expensive to go out regular but their is a circuit which pub/club is busy on a certain night. Also I cant recommend enough ski lessons with max4 esp on a powder day, you jumped the queues and the instructors knew where the best powder was. Its expensive but you can make a one of payment and go as much as you like just turn up in the morning or afternoon. Only 4 in a group and the instructor, would be flexible on what group wanted. Bugger you got me thinking, I want to go back!!!

my mistake. My old bindings were the marker griffon and i never had any problems, but there was a few threads on here that people did. I dont think you have to purchase bindings as well in the 'dot dozen' pre season sale. It may be worth considering installing quiver killer inserts if you plan to own a few pair of ski's :D
