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 :-)

Courchevel Le Praz to 1850

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi All,
Longtime follower but first time poster. We are heading off on our first trip to the snow with children and have booked ski lessons for our eldest. We are staying in Le Praz and the lessons are in 1850 - we know that there is the bus between the resorts but we're wondering if the Praz telecabine would also get us to 1850 without needing him to ski as this'll be his first time. Lessons start at 9.15am. On the maps it doesn't look too far but not sure! Any advice welcome.

Hi, AFAIK the Praz bubble opens at 8.40am. It's an 8-10 minute lift and a 400m walk to the ski school meeting points at the Croisette. Most of them are outside the main ticket office close to the Jardin Alpin lift on the piste map although I think a couple are a little closer, opposite Jean Blanc Sports (still the Croisette). Perfectly doable for 9.15am.

We stayed in La Praz with our (then) little ones in 2009 (aged 6 and 4, for second week of skiing). The daily trip via the gondola to the ski school meeting point was trouble-free even in ski boots, so long as the adults carried the skis. (I often carried the 4 year old back down to the gondola in the evening too!)

You've chosen a good location, I think. La Praz is funerally quiet at night, so your much-needed sleep (after the aforementioned "transfers") won't be disturbed and the green runs back into 1850 are perfect for the little ones to find their "ski legs". Enjoy!!
