Resort Advice

Hi all I'm an intermediate skier and my partner is a beginner only been once before. Any advice on the best resort in the Alps for us to visit first week in March? We will be driving from Calais and would like a bit of night life.

A bit more info would help. How far are you prepared to drive. French alps are about the closest-Austria a bit more of a slog. Budget? Type of accommodation preferred? Do you want chocolate box pretty resorts or can you handle purpose built high resorts which will have a better chance of better snow (don't think anywhere is going to be short on snow this season by early March-but likely to be mushier the lower down you stay). Are you planning on taking lessons? When you say "a bit of nightlife" are you happy with a couple of bars which have the odd music night, or would you like somewhere with a choice of nightclubby venues? Austrian apres ski is legendary.

My opinion only, based on skiing almost exclusively in France over the years, would be Courchevel 1650 (Moriond)-great slopes for beginners and intermediates, with native English speaking Ski schools. Not sure how vibrant the night life is there (it does have a few bars and places to go of an evening), but there is always Courchevel 1850 a short bus ride away.
Snow sure and with a reputation for good nightlife-you could also look at Val Thorens
