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,

do you guys have any good real estate agency based in Les Menuires which offers rentals? Or any other agency which offers weekly rentals? I am doing DIY this year so any help is very appreciated. I am looking for a place for 6 persons for one week in Les Menuires.

Booking and AirBnB do not have any suitable accomodation (read to expensive for my pocket).


Thanks in advance.

@matejp, did you try the tourist office https://en.locationlesmenuires.com/ ? Most (or all) local agencies will advertise with them.

@matejp, http://agencedesalpes.com -we’ve used them in St M down the road and they’re good. You can save a few extra pennies by taking your own bed linen and doing a thorough clean of the place before leaving. Also http://agence-des-belleville.com/
The links to local agents are all on the resort website.

I’m currently considering a quick solo trip to Courchevel from December 11th to 15th as I start a new job on the 16th.

How are condition shaping up at the moment? Feel I need to wait another week or two before I pull the trigger.

@coochiemudlo, it's shaping up well, but mostly higher up. Why Courchevel? I think Val Thorens is a safer bet - already a lot of natural snow at station level and canons in full blast, getting ready for late November opening

@Oleski, Thanks for the quick reply! I was leaning towards staying in La Praz actually due to my budget (I have just relocated my family from Australia to Ireland). Am hoping to do a quick and dirty few days on the mega cheap with a room via Airbnb. I guess Im just hopeful that mother nature blasts the whole region in the next couple of weeks.

@coochiemudlo, not sure there is any skiing below Courchevel 1850 until 14 December, so Le Praz, La Tania, Village/1550 and Moriond/1650 might not be open? Which probably means the inter-resort buses might not run either, so unless you will have a car there it could be tricky.

@kitenski, Will do Kitenski, thanks!

@ecureuil, great point, thanks!

I am surprised just how cheap you can get a tiny apartment for four nights with Airbnb there!

Now can anyone point me to the cheapest transfer from Geneva Airport. Alpybus the best option?

That in itself could be an indication that there will be very little open that week, including bars & restaurants. (Or that it is a dodgy listing!)

"Access only" suggests the cable car will be open but you won't be able to ski back and will have to download in the lift - which of course would be no hardship.

I'm in Val Thorens this coming weekend for a ski test and I see the weather could be better, ironically I'm leaving Serre Chevalier, and what looks like currently a dumptastic weekend Laughing
