Which resort you want to go to is going to depend on your needs, this article hopes to address this by looking at some generalised themes, however if you can't find the answers for what your looking for here you may be able to find them else where on the website or by getting in contact with us.
Beginners: We have a whole page devoted to beginners offering some top tips. As for which resort to go to, we recommend going to Meribel or Saas-fee.
Meribel is great for beginners because it has access to the three valley's 650 kms of piste, and therefore has a lot of different beginner areas to choose from. This ski resort is also particularly good for beginners as the lift network is substantial and therefore meeting up with friends of different abilities is quite easy. Also the ski school has English speaking instructors.
Saas-fee is also good for beginners because it has a large ski area set aside for beginners and has wide open sunny blue runs to practice on. This ski resort also has English speaking instructors and is well suited for meeting up for lunch with your friends.
Intermediates: All our resorts are well suited for intermediates with a range of blue and red runs to cruise down.
Advanced: For all you black run, off-piste and powder seekers we recommend you consider the 3 valley's ski area (Meribel and Brides les Bains) and also consider the Chamonix valley.
Due to the vastness of the three valley's area there are some really great spots for advanced skiers, its said that if you chose to do so you could spend your entire holiday off-piste, but you may want to consider taking some supplies with you.
Chamonix is excellent for off-piste with a large amount of possibilities going through some fantastic terrain and scenery, however it is recommended that you hire a mountain guide if you are intending on going off-piste as there are several glacier runs that have the potential to be dangerous, also they'll know all the best spots at the time when you go.
Apres Skiing: Now comes the answer to the question you've all been waiting for: Where is best to go for great night life and a good time? Unfortunately there isn't one resort which is necessarily better then the rest for this, as it depends on when you go. But as an attempt to answer this question, we recommend: Morzine. Morzine ski resort is lively, has a good apres skiing atmosphere with some fantastic bars and restaurants and has a large British following, making a good destination for those of you who have no wish to get the first ski lift in the morning and the last run down.
Now you've seen a review, its probably time to think about booking to make sure you get the best deal at the time you want without any disappointment. Here are our dates and prices.
