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...

Our holiday: 5 of us on our annual "Dads go skiing weekend"
Website :
Basics : we flew to Zurich then hired a car which was very good value between the 5 of us, interesting drive up as circa 250 bends in last 18kms!
Lift system : good mix of gondolas and fast chairs, many with covers, looked like the resort had invested heavily on lifts in recent years
The terrain : ideal intermediate cruising but mileage hungry could get bored after 2 or 3 days
The snow : it hadn't snowed for about 2 weeks but cold weather and good grooming meant the pistes were still in very good condition
Off-piste : in fresh snow would be great i'm sure
The resort : a nice town, situated by a frozen lake at the end of a valley so no through traffic, there was horse racing on ice the weekend we visited!
Food : has a very nice lunch at somewhere called Alpenpick (or similar), left hand end of piste map, but sevice was very slow
Accommodation : Chalet Runca run by english couple Helen and Mike, great place, higher quality than we are used to, i would highly recommend it
Costs: prices on piste and in town seemed about 30% less than la plagne a few weeks before
Conclusion: cracking place for a short break if you dont mind the drive from zurich, if going for a week i would recommend the train as transport not needed once in resort as bus service regular and very reliable
