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 :-)

Imagine being stuffed into a p&O WITH three thousand British 14 to 16 year olds with that too cool for school swagger that a school ski trip brings out.....now I know why I will never go on channel ferry again and stick to tunnel...thankfully we have tunnel for return...now just woke from a solid 5 hours sleep in a chicken coop motel and thinking about getting on road for 5am...ah wait wife and kids are comatose and won't wake till 7ish....I'm wired and ready to hit the road again....I'll just have to lye and count irritating spotty teenagers.......Bonne route to all.....give the silver passat withsilver roof box and an IRL sticker a wave on passing!!

A naive question probably but as an improving intermediate family who have only ever skiied in high cold places, will the freeze that conditions forecast for mid term be a bonus or a curse...we only ski piste?
You know it makes sense.

Daily use only. Did the same at Easter for wife. You can top the card up automatically at kiosk anytime so no queueing. Also there is a beginner's pass which allows access to a good selection of blues around the main town for 40euro I think.
Otherwise you'll just go on seeing the one name:

Hi all. Does the sarenne in ADH end at Alpauris chair and if so does that chair go back up the Bergers?....THE map is a bit fuzzy and doesn't label the black line as sarenne the whole way down. Thanks.

Val thorens for 12 April...plenty snow. Three Free carpet lifts and then a cheap beginner lift accessing several blues. We did easter last year for 5 family from Ireland for less than 2500euro...didn't use child care facilities though...taught the kids myself...also there is a fun kids skicross area with tunnel useable on the reduced price beginners pass. Sheep's supermarket in resort is reasonable price.

Hi out there. A question for those with good knowledge if ADH domaine .. ..which slopes would u go for early in day and later in afternoon for blue/red family of improving intermediates...are there any to avoid... We plan to start each morn from oz 1350 as we are staying in allemont. It's mid term so it could be a case that everywhere will be rammed and cut up unless we are up with the birds?

We did the D1504 option which goes through the tunnel du chat....the road runs through a quiet but good road through Belley Valley.. Tunnel comes out across from Aix Les Bains and then u head for Chambery. It was painless last Easter and has options for supermarket and diesel.

Thanks folks...Yes I'll go with my instinct and get full pass for all...it's only about 350ish euro difference with the family rate....does the full area pass allow one free access to pool and ice rink in vaujany as well as ADH?

We are in vaujany for mid term. Would there be enough scope to occupy my wife and 10 yr old daughter in oz-vaujany pass area as opposed to full domaine of ADH?. They are easy blue run level but will progress quickly. Me and other two young teenagers will get full area tribu pass. If we did opt for full domaine pass for all it seems that LDH, and Grande Galaxie and milky way have 1 day each built in....would they offer much worthwhile...we will have car?

Hi...we are going to Alps mid term and driving from Ireland. We are thinking of a premiere Inn stop in uk.. We have a 14, 12 and a 9 yr old. What's the consensus on using a family room?....For a check in midnight usb would they be strict on occupancy?

Hi folks. Vaujany offer a beginner's pass at 12.50euro it operates on Montfrais area. I was considering it for wife and youngest child for a day or two in midterm to get their bearings. Does anyone know if this pass allows uplift on the Montfrais and so if it does would that mean the user can ski down la vaujaniate blue and back up on a Colette?

Ferry from Dublin to Holyhead then drive to tunnel. A boat at 5pm gets us to tunnel for around 6am. We then drive an hour or two before a break and car nap before driving through to wherever. ADH this year. So about 30 hours door to door. I know it's not to everyone's taste...but it's the only was we can afford a winter and summer holidays.night driving through UK is only way.

We drive from Ireland with one stop...lol.u say!!...taking own gear is a big saving when taking three kids and 2 parents. If u priced 5 flights from remand to Alps and added in ski hire X 5 then you might see the method to the madness!

Hi all. We usually have done either Xmas or Easter to 3V/alp d'Huez but this year have to go Feb 16 to 23. I know it's probably late but is there any such thing as a budget location where mid term might not be exhorbitant...any where within a day's drive of Calais considered....

Thanks for comments. I'll open up the options. Tom doc we got IF to Holyhead at 0830 holy Thursday. We got Chunnel at around 2000 We drove to hotel near Reims. Left hotel at 0630 and managed an hour on the beginners slopes in VT same day. Were able to bring all our own gear saving a lot for hire costs for family of 5. We shopped at bourg en bresse but in hind sight prob could have not bothered as we found the Sherpa decent value. Drive was a breeze with no delays either outbid back. On way back we left VT at 1100 on sat and were in hotel in Calais at 2200 after 2 pic nic breaks en route taking advantage of the 25oC weather. We got 8 ski days. Then got Chunnel at 0720 on Sunday and the IF swift from Holyhead at 1715. We were through Belfast at 2100 ish. Might not suit everyone but we enjoyed the drive and saved a fortune of flights and ski hire...wouldn't do it any other way and so can afford a second holiday to France now in summer.
