The Three Valleys, France. - 09/04/2011
Overall

We stayed in the small town of Bozel. The Three Valleys are easily accessed by the local, free shuttle bus that travels between Bozel & Le Praz, the base station, from which a small bubble connects skiers to the main Courchevel area. Accommodation was at the Hotel De La Place in the centre of Bozel run by Stephan & his parents on a bed & breakfast basis. Conditions were warmer than usual for this time of year & money is tight this season so the slopes were unusually empty for this time of year ( 26/3/11 - 02/04/11). The off piste conditions changed after 1.30 pm every day, such that the avalanche risk was 3/5 ie 60% - advisable to stay on the piste. As Bozel is in a central location, access is possible to the La Plagne/Les Arcs ski areas (Paradiski) & also Valmorrel. Conditions were better in the Paradiski area than the Three Valleys but Valmorell could only be accessed via bubble from the Champaluc area . Eating out is not a problem in Bozel, ther are plenty of pizzerrias and French restaurants & the Le Roch bar opposite the La Place hotel has a very nice restaurant. I would recommend the Pizzeria Le Bonrieu run by Marcelle & Patrick in the Rue Emile Machet — nice wine list too! Bon appetite & good skiing!!!

Apres Ski: 2/5

Overall

Courchevel is without a doubt my favourite resort. It caters for all levels, has guaranteed snow, wonderful mountain reatuarants and a traditional friendly feel in the village. It is not cheap but worth every penny!
