We are considering skiing in Europe this year with our 12 y.o. son. DH is an advanced intermediate, I am advanced to expert (mellowing out at 55), ds is solid intermediate. Before kids, I skied Meribel, Tignes, Serre Chevalier, Solden, DH has skied Chamonix and Innsbruck. Looking for a family friendly resort that will suit all our levels, with good english speaking ski school for DS some days.
Considering Dolomites (Arraba, Colfusco, San Cassiano), Pragetto-Vialattea (Club Med), La Plagne/Les Arcs(Peissey-Vallandry Club Med), St Anton/Lech, and Verbier.
We usually ski one week out West (Utah, Montana), and a week in Vermont. I speak French, Italian, DH speaks German. Caveats: I get altitude sick sleeping above 8000 feet, and prefer trees to above the tree line (although I know the best skiing in Europe is the latter). Leaning towards Italy because of we haven't skied there. Oh, and DS broke his leg skiing in Park City last year, so may be more cautious than before. We are skiing at Sugarbush one week in December. Considering Club Med for other kids for DS, and so that I have someone to ski with my level (love DH, but I wait at the bottom of every run...)
Mid-March the week before British/German/Italian school break. Any recommendations? I am overwhelmed by choices and balancing needs of family!
