I skied Bardonecchia in maybe 04/05. Think I'll try Montgenevre, as I've never been before - google says it's 30mins from Sauze by road, happy days!

Update Flights are now booked 25th - 29th of Jan, including ski luggage. Have reserved an apartment in Sauze with parking for £40pp per night - seemed reasonable, but can cancel it free of charge if needed, depending on snow conditions etc. we wanted a bit of apres so seemed a good base. Will look at car hire a little closer to the time, noted about snow chains, so will make sure they are supplied. Plan on having at least 1 day skiing at another resort, what are the the closest options driving from Sauze? Thanks again!
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

Thanks for all the replies, seems renting a car and driving to the resort is the best option, then finding somewhere to park up. Guess I'll need something a bit bigger, maybe an estate, to fit the skis in - will need to make sure the back seats fold down too. Just been on a comparison site and there doesn't seem to be a mention of snow chains, but maybe that will change closer to the time, looking to be around £100 for 4 days, plus whatever insurance that will be added on no doubt. Better than a 300 euro transfer from Sauzeonline. Cheers!

Hi All, Posted here last year and got some great advice. A friend and I are looking at some flights to Turin in late Jan, 4 nights 3.5 days skiing. I'm after some help picking a resort, not for the skiing as much, but more for transfer/accommodation costs as there will only be 2 of us. The transfer options to the closest resorts (Sauze and Sestriere) seem more expensive and less plentiful than from Geneva for Avoriaz last year. Perhaps renting a car is the way forward, never done it before and quite nervous at the thought of it really. Also hoping to find some relatively inexpensive accommodation - we used Andy at Avoriaz lettings last year which was very basic, but perfect for us. All help and advice greatly appreciated - sorry for another load of questions this year!
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Wild Horse - Owned by Barrat and Jenny, pitchers of beer, shooters, good atmosphere, and burgers. The Place - live music for après, relaxed, owned by Simon and Rune from Denmark. The Tav - ( I do not know the new owner) live sports + happy hour. 'The Tav' sounds like the place to watch the 6 nations then. Thanks for your help.

Sorry if this has already been covered. Heading out to Avoriaz next week, wondering if anyone can recommend any lively bars to have a couple of drinks in, any that have happy hour would be great? Also any recommendations for cheap places to eat, pizza etc - we're on a slight budget. Any advice welcome. Thanks.

I'm after some advice from the Courchevel veterans: we're flying out this Saturday - can anyone recommend any nice and relatively cheap mountain restaurants to get a beer and chips at lunchtime?

Hi all, Are there any weather forecast sites people use, specifically for Courchevel? So I can look at it hourly until I go on the 13th :sH:

I’ve got plenty of time to catch the bus at Geneva, so fingers crossed there arent an long flight delays.

The transfer company (easy bus) only drop at prodains cable car not Avoriaz, we paid £38pp return from Geneva. We could have got a private transfer directly to Avoriaz, but they were coming out A LOT more expensive. I would be surprised if they continued up to Avoriaz if we missed the last cable car, but you never know.
You know it makes sense.

That’s brilliant, thanks for letting me know. God forbid we miss the last cable car, what are my options? How much will it be for a taxi? Hopefully not too expensive.

Hi, potentially stupid question, and sorry if this has already been covered elsewhere. I'm arriving late on a Friday night, aprox 23:00 - but my transfer to Avoriaz drops off at Prodains Cable car, which runs until 00:00 which is fine, however our lift passes will start from the Saturday. Is the cable car free to use or is there a cash option? I don't want to pay 41 euros for an extra days lift pass to ride one cable car. Also, with the list pass, if I buy them online do I collect them from the ticket office? If so, I won't have it anyway.

@ecureuil, Thanks. I'll be skiing with my girlfriend most of the time, except for 2 hrs a day when she'll be in lessons. I'll probable just stick to Courchevel, I've skied 3V a few times, but not spent much time in Courchevel - looking forward to getting to know it better.

I've booked just the Courchevel area lift pass, does anyone know if this will entitle me to have 1 day full area included? I think I've heard of such things in other resorts.

Just booked a week in Courchevel 1550, 13th of Jan. Fingers crossed for good conditions. I've gone Val Thorens twice and Meribel once, but never been based in Courchevel, looking forward to it!

Hi guys, I'm off to LP on Saturday for a week. All the weather forecasts seems to show rainfall during the week, I've never skied in the rain before, will this adversely impact the snow/skiing conditions?
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Hi everyone, I'm off to La Plange on the 18th, can't wait! I was hoping to take advantage of the vast knowledge on here for some recommendations for lunch spots. We're on a slight budget, so happy with cheap and cheerful - thinking a couple of hot chocolates, and something with chips. I'll be picking her up from ski school at 12:30 everyday with the aim to stop for lunch at about 2pm. From experience the amount you get for your money can vary a lot from place to place on the slops, so if there any hidden gems people can recommend that would be brilliant!! Thanks, Tom

Thanks for the reply Jaffakks, just over 2 weeks to go..... Sorted out lessons, now on to Ski Hire - there are both Skiset and Intersport ski hire shops in La Plange Soleil. Does anyone have any experience/recommendation of either of these? Thanks in advance. Tom

Thanks for all the replies, much appreciated - we'll look into both of those ski schools. Am I right in thinking that all ski school meeting points are in La Plagne Centre? Is that the same with ski hire? If so, how easy is it to get the skis etc back to the chalet boot room in Soleil on arrival day? I assume there is probably a bus? Also with regard to booking ski school for my girlfriend, is it book online and meet on Sunday, or do you arrange ski school on arrival day similar to ski hire? I've never booked lessons before, so sorry for all the questions. Thanks, Tom

Hi everyone, The girlfriend and I booked our caterer chalet in La Plagne Soleil last night and we're looking for any recommendations for ski school for her, and hire for both of us. I'm always dubious of booking these through the tour operator as I'm sure they add on margin. This will be my first time in La Plange so if anyone has any advise they can offer that would be great. Thanks for reading, Tom

Hello everyone, Me and the Mrs have booked the week off work to go skiing on the 18th of March. I've been plenty of times, the girlfriend has had 2 weeks in resort both times I have been teaching her due to lack of funds (managed to stay together despite that). The previous 2 years we went to Val T, then to Tignes last year. I'm looking for some different ideas of where to go this year, needs to be very good for beginners and ski schools as well as snow condition. Perhaps due to going later in the season might need to be a higher resort? We plan on going for a catered chalet rather than self catering, on a bit of a budget due to the extra cost of a weeks ski school for her. Any recommendation would be great! Cheers, Tom
And they're a friendly bunch.

Wow, thanks for all the replies guys - much appreciated! I think I'm going to go with the majority here and get an appointment at S4F. I plan on doing a week at some point in March, I hope this is enough time to get an appointment and get over to MK a couple of times to iron out any issues. Again, thanks for the quick responses. Tom

Hi all, First post on here. As my topic suggests, I am going to be buying my fist pair of boots for this season. I'm a competent intermediate with 15+ weeks of skiing, now at almost 30 I finally have a bit more spare cash to invest in a pair of boots. So the question is, do I buy in the UK at solutions4feet who are about 25mins from me, or do I wait until I'm in resort? I assume buying in the UK will be kinder to my wallet? But the benefit of buying in resort is I can take them back for alterations during my weeks skiing ensuring a good fit? If anyone has any advise, guidance, experiance or can offer me any help that would be great. Sorry if this ground has been covered previously. Thanks for reading, Tom
