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...

Club Med - Favourite resort? Feb half term or Easter

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi everyone,

Second post alert! I asked about La Ros yesterday, receiving some great and positive replies. This resort is still very much in my favour but I wondered if we had any Club Med veterans with experience in Feb half-term or Easter.... Easter is nudging in to the lead given prices and the potential of queues and busy resorts but open to all suggestions.

Are their better hotels and/or resorts?

Bit of background... family of 5, 2 ad and 17, 15, 13 year olds. Husband has skied twice in his youth and the kids and I never. Plans to learn before the holiday.

Club Med appeals given the facilities outside of the slopes. Easter appeals given the appeal of afternoons in an outside pool, admiring the views. Essentially though I wouldn't want to go at that time if the snow dictates very limited ski time.

Any and all experiences are appreciated.

Thank you!

@laws777 I did comment on your original post. Some extra thoughts for you:

Don't pick an "adults only" resort (Val Thorens/Les Arc 2000) as they aren't set up for teenagers!
Don't pick Samoens - Lovely public spaces BUT the layout of the hotel is horrendous and leads to lift rage!
Make sure the resort is reasonably high if picking Easter - Valmorel is lovely BUT is too low. Would be very good for half term
Pick a resort good for beginners - So Val D'Isere probably isn't a good choice
Not all resorts have the extra facilities you want - but that should be clear on the website.

Although I've not been to all the Club Meds (eg La Ros) - I think you should be OK at:
Peissey-Vallandry Or La Ros Or Valmorel (half term only)

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Thanks skitrack, great advice. Peissey-Vallandry was my second favourite hotel.

You've confirmed a lot of my concerns about the others and that really helps to narrow things down.
