Le Clusaz or Brides les Baines

 Poster: A snowHead

Hi,
I have been offered le Clusaz and Brides les Baines as options for a short early January break for me and my two boys.
Any thoughts on these resorts. Brides in particular seems very cheap compared to other options.
Cheers

Brides-les-Bains is cheap because it is in the valley, and needs a 30 minute gondola ride to/from Meribel centre, with a 5 minute walk to the main lifts. As a result it perhaps has more of a "town" than a "ski-resort" feel. Some people are quite happy with this; others find it a pain: e.g. it doesn't really work if you want to return to your accommodation during the day.

The gondola up opens at around 08:30, so gets you to Meribel centre for main lift opening. In January the last gondola back down will be at about 5:00, so you can't go out in Meribel itself in the evening, and missing it means an expensive taxi ride back down. Eating out options in Brides are more limited.

I have never been to Brides les Baines but I know that La Clusaz is wonderful.

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.
