serre chevalier - 11/12/2011

One word AWESOME !!!, its got everything you could want, The piste's are fantastic , and off piste is brilliant , the snow park is wicked, the lift system was great no queues only time it was busy when heading back home to the hotel on some of the paths. We stayed at the hotel GRAND AIGLE , which in order: had great beer with two happy hours about 3.5 euro a pint with table football , pool and video games, Staff were all youngsters and great made sure our meal times everything was o.k. and food was great and plenty. SKI EQUIPMENT was great and no trouble to go back and change or adjust anything and great tips where and when to ski certain parts , Rooms were warm and comfy , and just outside our hotel just yards away were 5 or 6 great restaurants. All in all we had a great ski all week huge amount of ski area to choose from and plenty of mountain restaurants to choose with great food not to expensive about 10 euros for a good meal i.e. sausage , 2 eggs ,salad, chips , bread roll and bottled water.

Apres Ski: 2/5



Second time we have visited this resort. Ideal for families with mixed ability skiers as there is a choice of runs at top of almost every lift and down to the villages at the end. Despite being the Paris and UK half term period, lift queues were rare except at base in Villeneuve and at end of day with people skiing home. We had many empty pistes - go to monetier , briancon and the middle level tree lined pistes and no one on pomas. The mountain restaurants are great and have lots of deck chairs. The only disappointing one was at base of monetier. Top tip you can pre book your lift passes, and get a family one if appropriate. Local tourist info website has really useful map showing where everything is. If staying near aravet square you can leave skis etc with ski hire shop opposite lifts. Also often quicker to go up to micky poma and ski to chair lifts than queue for aravet gondola.
