Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

I wouldn't feel quite so sorry for them, it seems like the directors are doing pretty well for themselves. It looks like the administrators might (not I didn't say will) be taking some money from VIP Ski to pay back other companies owned by the directors of VIP Ski

Not sure, it's called Vita Brevis Charlie. They also paid £120k in sourcing and consultancy fees to another company who's director is also the director of VIP Ski.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

First of many I expect. I'm not too surprised when they paid in excess of £400k for the season rental of one chalet in 2019 and their son in law a 'consultancy fee' of over £20k. Having said that the owner of the chalet for which they paid that excessive season rental in 2019 did fortunately happen to also be the director of VIP Ski.

Altibus is the cheapest and will only take 60(ish) mins longer than a hire car. Well organised company who we've booked with again this year to travel to VT after using them for the first time last year (previously we'd always hired a car).

Yes you can, but the lively partying in the Les Arcs Folie Douce doesn't get really moving until after 5pm. Early afternoon, which is when you'd be there if staying in La Plagne, is more a relaxed drinks on the terrace time before things get gradually more and more lively until it closes at 7pm (or 8pm on a Thursday). To be assured of getting back to Plagne Centre (without having to use any buses on the La Plagne side), personally, I would leave at 3pm just to be safe.

I guess the question is, does anyone know from which season they started shipping skis with the GW compatible bindings? I have a pair of 2016 Rossignol Hero Elite ST that have the Look SPX 12 Konect dual WTRs, so at least the past 4 years. I did demo some Heads before getting the Heros but, personally, I found the Rossignols had much more life in them, the Heads were solid but pretty dull in comparison.
Then you'll get to see more forums.

Rossignol Heros would be my choice with Look KONECT bindings. Outstanding skis (in my opinion) as well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Apm2TL_OlN4

No worries with there being enough snow in Les Arcs. I would consider looking at Arc 1800 (maybe EdenArc) for Easter to make the most of it's aspect, and as a result, better late afternoon/evening sunshine which disappears earlier in the 2000 bowl.

Surely with 30 full time staff, in a week they could have a presence at each UK based slope (just over 2 per staff member) to sell membership, support people taking their first steps into snow sports and link in with the club at that particular slope. This is what I would see their role as being, a bit like a district football association (SCGB) with the individual junior clubs being the UK slopes. If they want it to work they've got to do the graft at the grass roots instead of sitting on top hoping that the cream will always arrive. https://www.skiclub.co.uk/uk-slopes-map

Squats and both normal and Romanian (straight legged) deadlifts should be all you need. Follow a programme such as Stronglifts 5x5 but just follow the leg exercises should see you start with a good technique and rapidly move up the weight and your strength.

Thanks. Do you know what time the Croisette chair lift if open until? I think last lift is normally around 4.30? Last season was 16:45 up to the start of February, once in to the second week in February it went to 17:15. There are two bus stops just off the side of the piste before you get to the Croisette chair, the blue line bus will take you straight up to La Croisette if you're a bit late getting back and don't fancy the uphill walk

Yes it is. Straight down the Bolevard Cumin and then depending on what time you get back you may be able to get the Croisette lift back up into the centre of Les Menuires. There are no floodlights and it is quite flat.

La Plagne? Loads of intermediate runs and relatively snow sure (as snow sure as almost anywhere else at that time of year). It won't be super busy, but it won't be quiet either, maybe 20% busier than La Rosiere was for you last year.

In response to the OP, I'd recommend Les Arcs. High enough to be (relatively) snow sure for an early booking and if the weather closes in you have the Peisey Vallandry area to enjoy significant tree lined skiing.

Would the Rossignol Experience 88 Ti be comparable to the Fischer F18, on the piste, in terms of skills needed? I read that review (linked) and noticed that most of the reviewers were large heavy blokes. Not sure if that is relevant but it might be. I think you'll be fine, they don't seem extremely stiff, but they seem as though they suit a wide range of skiers and they should meet your needs as your skill progresses.

I skied both last Christmas and I would definitely go back to Grimentz, don't think I'd go back to Crans. We did have good snow and Grimentz did hold on to it much better, probably due to the aspect and busier slopes we found a number of slopes in Crans rather polished despite it being a bumper time for snow. Pretentious is the word I'd use to describe the atmosphere in and around the town in Crans.

Les Arcs? Aguille Rouge (3226m) down to Villaroger (1200m), 2026m vertical in a single run with no flat bits (that I can think of).

We always DIY with a hire car. We like self catering and the flexibility having a car gives at Christmas/New Year and Easter we normally get away for 10-12 days each and visit a couple of different areas for a similar price that a TO may charge for a week. We make the most of our time by getting an evening return flight and stop off at a smaller resort en route to the airport on our final day. This works very well for us

Like @Layne, I don't know Cervinia at all, but having skied both Les Deux Alpes and La Plagne (and skied both last season) I would chose La Plagne every day of the week.
