"and I'd love some suggestions for how to improve this journey" take the kids out of school on the Friday, - its the only way to make the journey less aggro, they don t do bugger all on the last day anyway Drive down on the Friday as far as poss, last year we did just east of Lyon, a lovely little village called Genas, but even then after leaving at 9am were still caught up in some traffic, so this year going on to Chambery on the Friday, leaving hopefully a simple 1.5 hours up to Sainte Foy

We stayed overnight at Lyon last year, but am heading to Chambery this time on the Friday to ensure being far enough ahead of the traffic
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

bar shaker - I m going back a number of years since I last done it, but I think the quickest was around 2hrs 50min. It was in the days of Ryanair flights for £0.01 so a no brainer

6.20pm is 7.20pm French time, plus 1.5hour flight is 9pm before you get off the plane, get luggage, clear customs, get car hire sorted.......................... more like midnight in Val I ve done it too for weekends, but also flown into Turin via STN as that's more local this end for me........extra cost of Frejus tunnel but not much difference in duration of drive

popped out to Morillon yesterday, although not in ski capacity as there is nothing open, but the hum drum of the annual chalet complex AGM......but having not been to Morillon for 11 years forgot just how stunning a place it is. Blue skies and green grass and snow capped mountains in the distance is visually without parallel.....imho Not much happening but La Puzze was open and packed inside.......3 course plat du jour 13 euros........maybe higher in season.....but even still tremendous value..... now just need the kids to be a bit older and the chalet mortgage paid off so the rent less important.....to make it a second home.

been several times in April...a lot of it is north facing so protected for longer periods from the fierce sun at that time of year........we love it but I guess it depends on your group composition and how many miles you want to ski......its too small for many, but then the mega resorts are too big for us. our kids are young so we feel comfortable they know where they are going if they want to do an extra run whilst we are finishing lunch or having a break.......
And post your own questions...

much depends on your budget too.................we had the same dilemma at new year...first time catered chalet and unsure of the protocol. We, 5 couples, did 50 euros a couple, so the chef & host got 250 euros. Seeing your comment about 10% makes me think we were stingy as the chalet was £19k.......and 10% of that at £1900!!!!!...... but I m sure 250 euros as a percentage of their salary for the week would have equated to more than 10%......

webcams down in Ste Foy also show new snow, so snow line below 1500m, but not by much I don t think as across the valley you can see the white trees stop and the green line start.......

hahahaha.....LOL...poppyhill. "Empty vessels and noise etc." that's a fairly accurate description of your 10 posts so far......... if you had the faintest clue about how the micro climate around the French/Italian border that Le Fornet sits bang on perhaps you d understand. Read through some of Chocsaways 3494 posts........I think you ll find they are deadly accurate from someone in town almost all season........both positive and negative around snow, weather and even flying to and from. perhaps you need to take some of your own advice - "Call your therapist, drink more"

check out the View from Val thread, to clarify this issue over the "fresh" snow at Le Fornet & Pisallas. Both Chocksway, Steve Angus & Endoman, skied the damn stuff and have pics. I don t think chocksaway is over reacting......he has been posting here for years, daily about the goings on in Val & Tignes................and then has some 9 post wonder pop up and say he is talking shite............I d say his reply was quite constrained!!!!!
