Chamonix

Chamonix

“ Every serious skier should get here at least once.  What makes Chamonix special is the serious off piste, often glacial terrain--not only the Aiguille du Midi/Vallee Blanche but the Grand Montets, Brevent, and Courmayeur in Italy (through the Mont Blanc Tunnel).  The only safe way to experience this terrain, if you are the kind of skier who is reading this review, is with a...” --oldgoat

Val Thorens

Val Thorens

“ Val Thorens has some of the best European piste skiing, period. Piste bashers will love the varied and interesting selection of intermediate/ advanced groomed runs. Near VT itself the skiing isn't amazing but it's well connected to the nearby areas on your 3 Valleys pass. The only real downside is the lack of tree skiing, and if the weather is bad on a mid-winter trip the exposed slopes...” --arturocarlos

“ Les Arcs 2011 / 2012 starts HERE!!!! Hope everyone had a good summer. Time to start planning for next winter. The summer season is over. All the lifts are closed. It is raining right now and there is even a little fresh snow falling on the mountain tops today so I thought it must be time to kick off the coming seasons new thread. How many days is it till the season starts, not...” --snowcrazy

Avoriaz

Avoriaz

“I live in the linked resort Morzine and both ski and board in Avoriaz all the time. It's a truly epic ski terrain with 100's of km's of pisted slopes across Avoriaz, Morzine, Les Gets, Chatel et al and an equivalent amount of off piste. Nightlife (unusually for French ski resorts) is awsome with the full range from grunge bars, upmarket wine bars, family friendly and also Michelin starred...” --Doyley

Le Grave

Le Grave

“ La Grave is a unique mountain....2150m of vertical, all unmarked, ungroomed terrain.  I skied there just one day...had planned for two, but our guide fell through on the first day.  La Grave is no place for the uninitiated to ski without a guide, so we opted for a day in a Italian resort about an hour away.  The one day at La Grave was fantastic and a true high alpine...” --EuroHound

Alpe D'Huez

Alpe D'Huez

“ ADH is great resort no matter what your ability.  The slopes closer to town are mostly blues and greens and for the slightly more adventurous the reds will lead you nicely back to the resort - you can get a great variety without travelling too far. The 250km of slopes comprises 4 separate areas, each are a resrot in themselves and cater for differing needs (quite and secluded...” --tallulajc

“Just returned from 8-day/7-night 'tour' trip with 80 'close friends' ... r/t-air from Bos-Paris-Lyon, with motorcoach to BridesLesBain [Golf Hotel / 3-star].  Travel-time aside -- Was it was worth the cost? -- about $2500usd per person [inclusive of air, transfers, hotel upgrade (w/2-meals), lift tickets, incidentals including lunches, wine, & para-sking excursion]. Pros - Lift-ticket...” --bionic

Montgenevre

Montgenevre

“   A small, unassuming traditional alpine village with a wonderful ski area. The slopes come right into the village. There is a good choice of restaurants and snack bars. In the evening, there are several decent bars: the village cafe, the mountain bars.   This is more of a family resort, not a party town full of braying hoorays or 'street' boarders. As a result it feels more like...” --Volf

Megeve

Megeve

“We spent a week at Megève, staying right in the village over February 6-13 2010 with two kids, ages 7 and 9.  This is a famous, luxury-oriented resort village set in one of the most picturesque Mont Blanc mountain settings with miles and miles of mostly beginner to intermediate terrain spread out over several valleys.  For most families, the Megève area pass will be plenty for keeping everyone...” --ExoticSkis
