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 :-)

Hello everyone,

Me and the Mrs have booked the week off work to go skiing on the 18th of March. I've been plenty of times, the girlfriend has had 2 weeks in resort both times I have been teaching her due to lack of funds (managed to stay together despite that). The previous 2 years we went to Val T, then to Tignes last year. I'm looking for some different ideas of where to go this year, needs to be very good for beginners and ski schools as well as snow condition. Perhaps due to going later in the season might need to be a higher resort? We plan on going for a catered chalet rather than self catering, on a bit of a budget due to the extra cost of a weeks ski school for her.

Any recommendation would be great!

Cheers,

Tom

@WillowWilson, have a look at snowtrex.co.uk or ski-planet.com (there are others) we have used both of these. Site gives good info on suitability etc. You should get a good deal for your dates as out of school holidays. Welcome to snowHead

18th March isn't that late, really, especially as recent winters have had more snow later in the season. If funds are tight, then Austria and Italy are generally better value than France.

If you want slightly more left field absolute bargain I would heartily recommend Slovenia.
Www.Rekahisa.com their all in half board catered chalet breaks take some beating. The food is excellent and the skiing good, especially for beginner/ intermediate level.

La Plagne is chock full of decent runs for beginners. Plenty of cruisey blues to play around on.

+1 for Austria. Loved every holiday there, the people are fantastic and the skiing is great. Snow should be fine across the majority of resorts.

If you can fly from Gatwick, then you could go to Åre, Sweden pretty cheap. Easyjet rtn flight £50, rtn transfer £50, self catering accomodation as little as £100/week each, week ski pass £180. Group lessons 3 hrs/day £45. You can book all through skistar.se. March is a good time of year to go.

I'm looking for fully catered chalets, but thanks for the idea. Are there any companies that specialise in chalets that include flights and transfers at a fairly reasonable price?
