Mail for help.Help!!

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 :-)
Remember me:
durr, I forgot...

(to be a proper snow-head, all official-like!)

A snowHead
(Who has registered and logged into)
Location: snowHeadLand
Resort: Reberty (actually Reberty Village or Reberty 2000 on piste map)
Country: France
Domain: 3 Vallees
Author: stevew

Date: 6-13th March
My holiday: Second time to the 3 Vallees this year
Website :
Basics : Reberty Village is linked to Les Menuires but has the great advantage that it faces up the valley towards VT, so no ugly tower blocks, went with Ski Olympic to Chalet St Michel, early morning (7:00am) flight so managed to get a couple of hours skiing on Sunday afternoon (well we would have apart from the C**P ski shop that my mate Phil had to get his skis from .. queued longer here than any lift, so 2 hrs went to 1 1/2!
Lift system : 3 Vallees! Big tip avoid Bruyeres Gondola in morning head for Doron chair at bottom of La Masse and then take Mont D'Chambre covered chair .. far faster, otherwise Etele chair or Reberty drag make same link (drag quicker but a b**l breaker!). Liked the new lifts at the St Martin end (Becca and Granges)
The terrain : Went to Les Menuires as it's the only bit of 3V never been based in before, busier than anticpated even though school hols had finished, discovered bits not done before.
The snow : Snowing on way in Monday was a great powder day (just wish I could do it more justice), did Piste M in Courchevel on the Wednesday which was awesome. Lots of very hard patches and a little bit of ice 3V 100% open a first for me, in general brilliant conditions if at times a little cold. Best fast bit was doing the two chairs at the top of the Fourth Valley (Peyron & Bouchet) in one go back to the bottom, cracking snow and no one there, full speed ahead chaps!
Off-piste : Great on the monday but otherwise a little crusty
The resort : 1 Horse town, 3 bars, The Ferme - nice bars - excellent food in evening, Igloo bar just below it shuts early (10pm), Cote 2000 a french bar .. went in one night loads of French in who sang Happy Birthday to someone and promptly left, leave 6 of us alone in bar .. we didn't go back. 1 Bad ski shop and a spar! Advantage on the side of the piste. Back to VT or Courchevel next time.
Food : Ferme is great, both lunch and evening, other memorable lunches Eterlou in C1650 and oz place in La Tania can't remeber name.
Accommodation : Ski Olympic Chalet St Michel .. ensuite rooms (a little small maybe) .. good public area, sauna and jacuzzi, great staff .. Phil (ski buddy) wasn't impressed that there were some kids there but he has lead a sheltered life. Food was great.I've been with SO x times, this was one of their best chalets so far for me.
Costs: Not as discounted as it might have been but quality accomodation.
Conclusion: Great hols only spoiled by the weather being a bit cold at times. Won't go to Reberty again, too little night life and nothing else to look at, but I've got it out of my system. Having said that great skiing from the door and if you don't want to you don't have to go into the centre of Les Menuires at all.
Very Happy Very Happy
