I just wrapped up my ski trip and this place is fantastic. I will post a trip report when I get home and include pictures. Regarding the topics in this tread
Where to ski & travel times: I agree with Mark that the better skiing is between Champery and Les Gets. This place is huge, but you can get around a lot faster that I thought. On one day I went from Champery to the farthest part of Les Gets and back. On the same day I also went to Morgins and back. I ski pretty fast but wasn’t trying for a record or anything and did repeat several runs. Crossing the towns of Morzine and Les Gets were easy walks. I think they had a shuttle at Les Gets but it wasn’t worth waiting for when the walk is about 5 minutes.
I skied everything except for the area north of Morgins (and the non-connected areas). Some highlights: The best continuous vertical were at the area north of Les Gets, Las Proclains area (near Avoriaz) and Mossietees (Swiss side near Les Crosets)
The only real downside was crowding in some areas. Lift lines weren’t bad but there are some choke points in a few areas that are way crazier than anything I have seen in the US or elsewhere I’ve skied in Europe. The worst busy runs were just 5 meters wide with 4+ people skiing next to each other, making turns through moguls with a 20’ cliff on the side. Some people on these run were aloof, some went 5 MPH others 30+ MPH. People on these runs seem to “box out” meaning if they get by you, they turn right in front of you (2’ in front) so close that you get pelted with massive amounts of snow (not a mist, more like snow balls) It was crazy, and I sure wouldn’t take family on those runs but those runs can be avoided 98% of the time so I wouldn’t let it stop me from returning.
Regarding where to eat: Got me, I ate a ok places but nothing special. I stayed in Val-dIlliez which required a 10 minute train ride each day to get to the lifts. I saved several hundred dollars and got a nice and clean place. It was just what I was looking for.
Regarding night skiing: I’m not sure if night skiing was canceled or I just missed it. Either way, I finished nearly 9 hours of non-stop skiing at 5 and was good and tired. I saw lights on just one short (500’ vert) lift, so that may be all the night skiing there is.
