We're looking to go skiing this Christmas with my PIL who are none skiiers. We've been before to Morzine - we all love it there but I was wondering if anybody could recommend some similar resorts that we could consider.
Short airport transfer (2 hours max) Good snow record Busy town (not purpose built resort) with plenty for non skiiers
Chalet wise: 2 twin rooms 2 doubles Fully catered Fairly central in town with easy access to ski lifts
zell am zee is lovely, would make a great choice, no idea about chalets though i am afraid. also somewhere in italy (like courmayer) might suit, but i am not sure about the transfer. Saas fee is picturesque but £££ and can be cold as north facing (but then the snow should be good...)
Its 5 minutes on the free ski bus into Chamonix centre, buses are very frequent. There is also a cable car in walking distance or buses going to other end of the valley for skiing there. Food was great.
Les Gets is a good Morzine alternative in the same ski area. Alternatively the Grand Massif area (traditional villages include Les Carroz and Samoens) is nice as are La Clusaz and Grand Bornand in the Aravis ski area.
Megeve has fantastic skiing and really nice hotels. Coin de Feu is a hotel near to the Rochebrune cable car lift and just up a short hill from the main town. Megeve is a lovely old quaint french town, infat one of the first ski resorts!
