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 :-)

Yes, all on the same ski pass. Bus takes 20mins and well worth it.

@Peterjones3, We recommend Steve Rothwell, Georgi Popov, and Iavor Vasilew at Zink Ski School (also David Spacey when he’s instructing, rather than focusing his energies on apre-ski entertaining, and Kris Dragonishov for boarding). Also Johnnie Walker at Furstauer. PM me if you’d like any contact details. Hi, PM sent requesting contact details. Cheers

Jones family ski trip just this now booked for 23rd Feb 2019. Super excited despite it being a fair few months away! Never been to the ski circus before, but love Austria (big fans of Solden). Whose going to tell me all about this place?

I'd have a word with Christophe at Reflex Ski school in La Plagne if it was me. Streets ahead of any others I've used. If he can't fit you in then use the others as back-up.

Yeah, we were based in Obergurgl but got stuck in Solden for the night last week. Apparently the road never closes! All other days the buses ran like clockwork and it is a great additional to be able to move between resorts on the one ski pass so easily. We found Solden had better skiing in the conditions we faced with more tree lined runs open. As for apres, hard to miss it in Solden. The one at the bottom of the Gaislachkogelbahn is a mix of new and authentic Austrian cheese. Just wait til you hear Johnny Dapp!!

damobloke1, 3 years ago it was around 100 NOK for a pint. Hot chocolates around half of that. Ski Lessons also expensive. We had a fantastic ski in self catering chalet which accommodated 12 of us. Supermarkets were excessive and so was eating out (£25 for a pizza). All that said, we had a great time, and its a different and more intimate experience to the bigger resorts in the Alps. Are you flying into OSLO and getting the trysilexpressen?

Very cold, short days, extremely expensive booze. If none of these are a negative to you then you will enjoy! Not been xmas week, but New year which was a great night with a valley full of fire work displays. Been twice, first year snow was fantastic, the next time not so good and not as many runs were open - what was (although groomed each morning) cut up within an hour. mainly tree lined runs leading down to Trysil centre, so great when low vis and lots of cheeky routes through the trees! Other side of the 'mountain' is a bit more exposed so some of the chairs are covered. Good resort for young kids with the junior park, race days, treasure hunt days etc. Just cold.

Used skiset and the 'Model Guarantee' last week in Alp d huez. The skis we selected were not available, nor where they (apparently) available in any outlet in Alp d huez. I was a bit peeved and asked them why have a model guarantee if you cant adhere to it. I got a shrug of the shoulder, was told they only guarantee something equivalent and that the ones we had selected were rubbish anyway - the shiny Rossignols in stock were much better! Not alot I could do especially as we had waited about an hour already by this point and were extremely tired (junior was close to tears). In short wont use again. Be warned if you want a specific ski.

Kaisr Sose, sorry for late reply. Just used them for lessons, hired equipment from the Sporthutte under the Gaislachkoglbahn. A few different outlets, all with top quality gear - wouldnt say it was cheap (or expensive). Got vouchers from the hotel we were staying in, discounting by 10%. Seemed a generic thing to get custom. The Giggijoch (the other main gondala) has similiar. It is cheaper than St Anton, more so for drinks and food. Apres tends to centre more around the Giggijoch, and late night in Fire and Ice. Can get pretty bonkers in a europop kind of way. Really enjoyed the skiing there. The glaciers have some great warm up runs with wide opens spaces to cruise or practice. Lots of off-piste that is accessible, but very dependant on the conditions at the time and soon gets tracked. I did advanced lessons, but they were focused on technique more than anything. You might be best popping in and having a chat to see how they can meet your needs. Sorry cant remember who I used.

Stayed in Belle Plagne last year with junior on a similar schedule. We got a pass that included one day across the vanoise express to Les Arc. Easily done,enjoyed the trip and back in plenty of time. What I would say is that you will only get a taster of LA, and with the LP pass offering absolutely loads of skiing I'd question if its worth it with hindsight. That said the vanoise is an experience. Enjoy either way, I know we did.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Lack of snow, not people. Thawing too quick below 1500 metres.

Went april 9th in 2011. No runs open down to solden itself that time of year, but loads were from the mid stations upwards. Plenty of skiing and the glaciers offer lots of good snow to enjoy. We had the added bonus of a 3ft dump on day 3. This lasted the week! Everyone would just get the gondola back down around 3-4pm from the mid stations and hit the bars at the bottom. Would definately recommend as a late season option.

Peterjones3, I'm booked in for two hours with Seb at Stance a week on Sunday, will let you know what I think cheers. As it happens, been in touch with Oli over the weekend. Really impressed with his communication, so booked a few lessons for my wife. I am hoping he gets her confidence levels up so we can explore more of the resort! I will probably book something for later in the week.

Reading this thread with interest as just booked for 2nd Feb for a week. I am leaning towards Stance, but anyone who has experience of these or others please share especially if it was to help improve a nervous intermediate's confidence on steeper or icy runs.

My wife is a very nervous beginner who snapped her ACL on her second week! After 2 operations and 10 months recovery we went to La plagne for my wifes third week. She wanted private tuition (understandably) as a condition of going again. I had read a few reviews on here, and plumped for Reflex Ski and lessons with Christophe lagu who runs the school. His wife is from the Uk so he speaks very good english - he was a very patient and knowledgable instructor who helped her progression and confidence. Streets ahead of other instructors Ive had the pleasure of spending money on!
