Super skiing - outside school holidays

My wife and I went to Les Menuires in February and I have to say the drive was hell! We didnt even realise it was French school holidays and the traffic was just awful - there are so many bottle-necks. So highly advise planning holidays outside the school holidays! We had good weather and a little fresh snow. However,due to high avalanche risk, we couldnt go off-piste which was a shame. Les Menuires is part of the 3 valleys so heaven for experienced skiers but you dont have to buy a 3 valleys pass. We stayed in a self-catered apartment - small but nice- and did food shopping in the valley at the huge hypermarkets there - i'm sure we paid a lot less! Some nice restaurants but high prices there too! The free shuttle buses are great.

Going back for more fun in Les Menuires

We are going back to Les Menuires again in the school hols after a fantastic ski holiday there last year. We stayed in the Belhambra Neige et Ciel residence - great for families and pretty good food. The ski lifts in Les Menuires are very efficient - shorter queues than elsewhere in the 3 valleys - ski lifts expensive of course but when you see what you get for your money, it's not surprising!

Great family ski resort

We bought our daughter here (3) for her first ski holiday and we would highly recommend it for family ski holidays. The staff were great in the kids facilities - really run and jolly (not always the case in France)! We chose a ski in, ski out club med hotel which made everything so much easier. Great entertainment for everyone, good food - a real treat and worth making the extra investment. Highly recommend les Menuires for family ski holidays - everyone had a great time!

Reasonably priced 3 valley option

Reasonable prices in Les Menuires for food and drink, in comparison to other 3 valley ski resorts apparently. Val Thorens was easily accessible, as was Meribel and Courcheval. Self catering accommodation in Chalet Dame Blanche was very pleasant. After skiing a lot in Switzerland and Austria, the French grumpy attitude was a bit much - they really need to chill out and learn how to have a laugh! Oh and also realise the we are the customer and we pay! This took off the fun edge and so not sure we would come back to france to ski again.
