We are in Les menuires, never been here before so yesterday was a bit of a route finder, covered most the Les men valley, today was supposed to be up to the VT area but the weather was against us, driving icy snow and low visibility. Hoping for sun..

There will be someone along with better info on other areas but here some info. We have stayed ADH 3 times, each time in the vieiel alpe area (D6 on the map). This is a fairly quiet area with only a few restaurants and shops, enough to get by a few days self catering. From the tourist info centre F6 you can catch the lobster pots up to the next level (the main street with the pool and ice rink) for free. Here are more restaurants and shops and supermarket. Its actually only a short distance and we would always walk back from there as its downhill. You also use the same lobster pots in the mornings to take you to the rond point des for the start of skiing. we used Bensbus from the airport the 1st visit, we told the driver the location and he dropped us at the basically at the door.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

thanks all, I have booked it, the building is called Armoise. It looks pretty central for Reberty (J3 on the map), from the photos it looks like a slope runs directly behind the building. I cannot see us needing anything more than a couple of restaurants and a mini supermarket close by..

Hi, Looking to take my daughter during Feb 1/2 term. Have spotted a nice apartment available in the Reberty area, looking at the Les Menuires map this area seems quite a distance from the Croisette area. Does this cause any problems, is this far in reality? We will be mainly Self Catering with 2-3 restaurant visits, pub evenings.. Just don't want to be in the middle of no-where. cheers Jason.
After all it is free Go on u know u want to!

We've stayed in twice in the Majestic apartments close to the bottom of the lobster pots and tourist office. A few mins walk to the pots in the morning (kids didn't moan it was too far) and only a few mins wait during 1/2 term. It's a quiet area with a few shops and restaurants nearby, the bigger supermarket is a 5mins walk. I wouldn't stay at the mid point of the lobster pots though, the queues in the morning were much longer.
Then you'll get to see more forums.

I used booking.com and found a single room in the place below for the same dates, I think it is full but it might be worth contacting the owner to see if they know of other availability. http://www.arlberg.com/haus-krammer/
And they're a friendly bunch.

st anton Feb 2017 Solo male mid 40's, intermediate skier. Wife staying at home, daughter off skiing with mates. Be nice to ski with someone / have a beer if you're out there. Have never been St Anton before so little apprehensive.
You know it makes sense.

Otherwise you'll just go on seeing the one name:

My beer assistant is working the kronenbougs for me here in Alpe Dhuez, we stopped overnight once past Troyes then this morning set off again, few delays on the D43 for 20mins or so but no majors.

The mobile lite G2 device is also great for putting a few movies on a spare USB stick so the kids can connect to it and watch films on their iPads, I think it allows up to 6 connected devices at any time all watching a different movie! Highly recommended!

thanks again for the replies, appreciated. I think the future for us is driving, the daughter is now in high school so the holiday has to be 1/2 term, I can drive 4 people there for the price of 1* 1/2 term flight price. That and the wife dislikes winter flying turbulence. I think I will go ahead with some skis and boots, I will get something around the 175-178cm range and then test at the Snowzone, if there not suitable I will resell for no loss.

I think maybe the easier turn is why I felt OK on them. Especially in steeper icy conditions, whilst not really a speed demon. Time to man up..

Thank you for the replies. I will look for something longer. I was looking at that as I had been happy with that length before, but there are lots of options and I will take you're advice. As for boots I was hoping to buy 2nd hand that had minimal usage.. trying to keep the costs down. Up to now I have rented each year and always been happy with the boots supplied.
Then you'll get to see more forums.

Hi, Need some advice. We are driving to Alpe D'huez this year as 1/2 term flight prices are shocking. Thought I might invest in my 1st pair of skis as I have the room to take much more stuff (roof box). My best ski year was in Austria a few years ago, granted conditions were fantastic but I felt I progressed a lot and really enjoyed the skis, so much I made a mental note of size and model (Atomic Nomad 163). Not realising there are many different Nomads.. Searching around I really like the sound of Rossignal E83, I have seen a pair at length 168cm, would this be unsuitable? Also looking at a pair of Salomon mission 10 boots as well. If not are there any makes/models my be better for me? About me, mid 40s bloke, 5,10", 85kgs, the usual 1 week per year - 10years + skiing/snowboarding. Like to practice the carving, moguls but really prefer red runs, last year was OK on all terrains - even though the beginning of La Sarenne was a bit icy. Don't normally take lessons but my wife gave up with injury last year so me and the Daughter took the afternoons with her instructor, he led all over the mountain and off piste and that was cool.

Same problem. This year resolved by flying Sunday to Sunday as it was a 3rd of the price of Friday eve or Saturday flying, BensBus to Alpe D'huez and then renting a private apartment. The difficulty was finding an apartment that lets you book Sunday to Sunday, but they are about. Were SC this year but we managed to get 2 adults and 1 child for the price of 1 adult FB in a decent hotel.
