Well, we've chose for Les Arcs1950.
We've got there by car, since at that time (5pm) the weather was good and the road was clear(but start to snow just at the time we arrive up there -6Cº!!). So, quickly drop the baggage(a lot of) off and drove back to Albertville to return the car, got a train to Bourg St Maurice, the Funicular to Arc1600 and the free bus to Arcs 1950.Yes, a n adventure, but 9PM I was back in there, a hot bath
, got relaxed to enjoy a glass of Bordeaux.
Why we did it? Ease to explain: 70 Euros to parking, + 5 days of car rental(and not use it!) = very expensive.
On the way back, we call a taxi to Bourg, got a train to Annecy, rent another car and Voila drove back to Paris. I think, it works perfectly!!!!
BTW, At NICE we were notice that they have 3 to 4 places to ski not so far. Not big places for sure but about 1 hour (90Km)from Nice, by car or bus. One of those places have a regular bus service by 1Euro, each way.
