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...
Or: Register
(to be a proper snow-head, all official-like!)

Resort Advice

Hi all I'm an intermediate skier and my partner is a beginner only been once before. Any advice on the best resort in the Alps for us to visit first week in March? We will be driving from Calais and would like a bit of night life.

A bit more info would help. How far are you prepared to drive. French alps are about the closest-Austria a bit more of a slog. Budget? Type of accommodation preferred? Do you want chocolate box pretty resorts or can you handle purpose built high resorts which will have a better chance of better snow (don't think anywhere is going to be short on snow this season by early March-but likely to be mushier the lower down you stay). Are you planning on taking lessons? When you say "a bit of nightlife" are you happy with a couple of bars which have the odd music night, or would you like somewhere with a choice of nightclubby venues? Austrian apres ski is legendary.

My opinion only, based on skiing almost exclusively in France over the years, would be Courchevel 1650 (Moriond)-great slopes for beginners and intermediates, with native English speaking Ski schools. Not sure how vibrant the night life is there (it does have a few bars and places to go of an evening), but there is always Courchevel 1850 a short bus ride away.
Snow sure and with a reputation for good nightlife-you could also look at Val Thorens
