I have my air booked but am holding off on hotels, figuring that is very early season and I can always find a room. Plans may change if there is very early heavy snowfall and maybe I won't have to go south as much. I want to experience the French Alps and ski a couple different resorts, cause I like to ski and see different areas. I figure if I get jet lagged (or when i do), I'll just pull off and nap, easier to do if you are one. Verbier does not open until Dec 12th so that is not an option.
Tignes and ValThorens are the sure bets if no snow, but ValThorens is further, so why bother on first Euro trip. And LesArcs looks like a huge area to explore. So hopefully, I'll get to ride a whole different bunch of cable cars and gondolas and the snow gods will be on my sides, but even so, likely I'll get some pretty good skiing in where I'm going. any better ideas? It's a quick trip but will get me out of town for a few days.
