Chamonix might suit, especially if your 'experts' are truly that. The Les Houches area is great for learning.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

It certainly won’t be a week from hell. Zermatt is not exactly family-oriented; it is expensive and the skiing is spread out and often challenging. Not the sort of place you'd expect to find lots of families. It's probably one of the better resorts if you must go at half term.

Useful survey IMHO. Different people travel from different places, so impossible to include travel. Similarly some will self-cater and others will stay in a swish hotel. The items that the Post Office have costed are common to almost all.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Either will be fine as both dates avoid the European school holidays. Personally I prefer March - longer, warmer days. You're more likely to get powder days in January though. 10th March 2017: http://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/wp-1489158162590.jpg 29th January 2017: http://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/wp-image-1224938232jpg.jpg

Good skiers should be able to ski all terrain and not just a one trick pony. Fixed that for you. It's not about technique.

Ours were 5 and 3 when they started skiing. Definitely get them used to everything before you go. Spend as much time at a dry slope/fridge as you possibly can - make sure they regard skiing as fun. Half hour private lessons should be available anywhere I would have thought? At our slope we run lessons specifically for 5s and under and they're very popular - seems very odd that Norwich doesn’t do this.
You know it makes sense.

@abc, as Mrs NBT's Aunt will (probably) be driving over and finding a hotel for a night or two, a longer trip for her (3 or 4 hours driving instead of 90 minutes perhaps) is not out of the question - therefore it's a question of which resort we want to visit. If that resort is close enough for her not to need a hotel, great, but she's not averse to a nice hotel and a slap-up meal :) We've no firm plans at all yet. Provisional dates are mid-march, we'll be flying from Manchester as it's our local airport but we could fly to Geneva or Sion easily - Zurich is an option, as is Basel, although the latter is a little further from the resorts and the former involves connecting flights. Once we land, we might hire a car or use the railways we could even use a tour-op package and go to Wengen / Grindelwald, we haven't discounted that, but all constructive feedback is useful If you have non-skiers then Wengen is hard to beat. Plenty to do, good skiing and easy to meet up on the mountain for lunch etc.

We have moved from Jersey and now live in France. I can see Puy de Sancy mountain peak (1886m) from our bedroom window with Le Mont Dore slopes only 1h30m away. Being closer to the alps you would think it would be easy to get to Mürren from here, think again! By train it would take 10hrs and by plane I need to fly back to Gatwick to get to Geneva. So, driving it is and only 6h40m :( :( I can believe that. A friend who spends winters here lives near Cahors. He also finds it easier to fly home via the UK. The cows are being moved to lower pastures - at the moment they're just above the village at Allmend. https://mikeeasley.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/wp-image-1455498760.jpg Rain & windy today - snow down to 1300 metres forecast for early next week :shock:

I don't see the Swiss discounting as being in response to Brexit and I don't see the target market being holidaying Brits. I think the target market of Televerbier and Magic Pass promotions is more the Swiss themselves and is a response to the soaring value of the CHF. The Swiss in cantons close to the borders have the choice of skiing in Verbier or the Magic Pass resports or nipping across to France, Germany or Austria to benefit from the CHF's strength against the EUR. The CHF has climbed from being 1.5 CHF to the Euro, to near parity, so it's a big difference. First came the discounted Saas Fee season pass, which seemed a crazy deal and was a huge success in terms of the takeup and secondary spend in Saas Fee. The Magic Pass is another excellent deal and we're wondering now what will be the effect on the Portes de Soleil and whether it will respond in a race to the bottom. Correct, IMO. Our season pass is now CHF666 vs CHF950 last season. Nothing to do with Brexit, the Swiss wintersports industry has a problem.

@powdairski, Thanks for the info - There is certainly a market for what you are offering. We have a few British expats in our village who 'commute' to and from LCY to Bern-Belp on a very regular basis. I hope it all goes well for you.

In our (admittedly tiny) village last season, Dec and Jan were quieter than usual. Firstly, the early season snow didn't arrive until the middle of Jan. Secondly, Christmas and new year hotel prices are perhaps too high for many foreign skiers with the exchange rate as it is. Thirdly, I don't think so many people are coming skiing as they used to - even February which is usually heaving, wasn't overly busy. Season pass prices have been slashed by 30% for next season, which might bring in more Swiss people. Won't help the regular tourists though. Interesting analysis here from the tourist board: http://www.jungfrauzeitung.ch/artikel/152889/

@snowdave, Wasn't suggesting that the passes were bad or good value. This winter will be my fourth consecutive season in Chamonix. I was just nonplussed at the idea of the CdMB charging me 140€ less than last year. There must be a catch. Perhaps they're just trying to be a little more competitive. Our area pass was CHF950 last year. This year? CHF666.
