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 :-)

Best Resort for Kids & Beginners

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi,

Looking for resort suggestions for young kids and beginner adults - basically a lot of greens and blues, and easy access to lifts from town centre.

Don't want to be doing a lot of walking with ski gear on and carrying skis for the kids.

The young kids have all done lessons and can ski (better than the beginner adults) - so not looking for advice on lessons or ski schools.

Cheers!

Absolutely choose Passo Tonale. End of thread wink

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

not been to passo, but if my kids were young again, i would give it a lot of thought.

Otherwise: Valmorel or La Rosiere

Sorry, maybe I should have given more info as to why:

It's next to a road, with most hotels right across the road from the lifts. More importantly for beginners there is a very progressive increase in slope angle from piste-to-piste, allowing you to move from one slope to the next most difficult one without any 'heart in mouth' moments as you look down from the top of the lift you just got off of. Also (and I don't know why) it seems remarkably resistant to the build up of moguls on the slope. There is a magic carpet, a drag lift, and a gentle chair all right next to each other, so you can progress your 'lift technique' in a stress-free manner too.

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Other places to consider:

Serfaus, Austria -excellent ski schools, large variety of pistes, but do pick your accommodation carefully to be close to the lifts.

Les Saisies, France - lots of easy pistes that all finish in the resort, lots of ski in/out accommodation at either end of the village.

Ski to door or near enough, lots of greens and blues:

Puy St Vincent
Rohmoos (near Schladming)

I'd throw Flaine into the pot. Big bowl so the kids can't suddenly end in a different valley! Our son basically learnt to ski there.
Not the prettiest place mind!

Loads of possibilities, budget time of year and type of accommodation would also be pretty big determinants.

I've not been to Passo Tonale but from descriptions and pictures it doesn't look very appealing, given the gigantic range of choice. I'm biased, of course, but would rate Les Saisies. I've skied a bit at Flaine - it has a lot going for it but I was bowled over by the cost of very ordinary stuff in the mountain restaurants, compared to Saisies. So much depends, as @T Bar, says, on other criteria. The choice, even within France, is endless, and when you add in Austria, Italy and Switzerland......

Also - if my kids could ski better than me there is NO WAY I would carry their skis. Lazy little beggars.....

Personally found the ski schools in Andorra to be excellent for kids - and with a predominance of English speaking children it made for a more comfortable time for my kids. The instruction in Austria is also top class, with classes having a more international feel. The transfers to Andorra are long however.

Otherwise you'll just go on seeing the one name:
Hochfügen is great. Hotels at the bottom of the slopes. Theres an easy enough way down from almost any point and it’s mostly contained. There’s one point where you can cross over into the rest of the local ski area but you have to really try as it’s a separate lift. Kids have just learned to snowboard there.
