Ok so here it goes. Me and a friend possibly two are trying to plan a ski trip next year to go somewhere in europe. I know it is a whole year early, but I am just trying learn as much as I can. I want to here your thoughts about what resort would be good for us to go to. First let me say this I am a level 8 skier, and my friends are one a 6 the other a 5. I plan on working with the a lot this year to help them get better, so difficulty is not really an issue. We will have to go early next year, because I have school obligations. The dates I am looking at are like Dec 27-Jan 1. Those would be departure date, and we would stay for 7 days, and ski 6. So early season snowfall is a big deal. What resorts typically get good early season snow? Resorts I am currently looking at are Chamonix, Val Thorens, Zermatt, St. Anton. Right now I am thinking Val Thorens is probably the best bet for early season snow because of it altitude. I am not stuck on any of these resorts. A lot of the information out there is very heard to understand. So I am looking for some help from you european skiers. Let me know what places you think would be really good for me to consider for a trip. Thanks.
