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 :-)

Comblouxs great

Went to combloux for a day last week and was bowled over how good it was, especially for children. I was a little lucky with the fantastic conditions but all in all couldn't recommend it high enough for a skiing young family looking for a few days skiing together. Lots of easy blue and green runs and a relaxed atmosphere on the slopes. No high octane nutters charging around to worry about here. Also a few children's courses set with tunnels and bridges.
Shame it's so low, as it's be buying my bolt hole here if it could limp through to mid April....
Guess that's why it's so relaxed.

We loved it in January too! As you say, very relaxing skiing.

Ended up there for a day last year on half term. We'd been at avoriaz the day before so by comparison combloux felt empty.

Really great place.

You'd have found the same a little way up the Valley, at Praz sur Arly where the skiing (unlike at Combloux) is on the "shady" side of the valley and keeps it's snow better. It's aspect, rather than altitude, which is the main problem at Combloux.

Horses/Courses

I went there for a day last week and found it really, really dull.

All easy blues and greens and that includes the reds and black(?).

I would not go back...but like I said horse/courses so who am I to say?

I suppose I was looking at it from skiing with a family perspective. Verbier, it isn't.......

@pam w, sorry to nitpick, but don't the slopes at Combloux pretty much all face northeast or north, which is about as shady as you can get? It's only the handful of runs into Megeve down the Jaillet gondola which are slightly south of east facing.

@Jwh138, +1 for combloux for family ski trips, took mine there a couple of seasons ago for my kids first ski holiday.

Loved it, I went back a few weeks later for a cheeky break with my business partner!!
