Bobo club/Obersgurgl?

We've skied in Les Gets/Morzine since DS was born as they are nice, family friendly resorts with short airport transfers. I want that again but we are looking at going in April so need a resort that's a bit more snow sure.
Friends' little boy will be 3 and my DS will be 2. The ski school offers non-ski kindergarten and ski lessons (bobo club) from age 3.
Has anyone used this, or stayed in Obergurgl with small children?

We were in a Obergurgl two years ago and I remember thinking the kids at ski school were having a ball with their instructors. They were a bit older than yours though.

We went to Obergurgl with Ski Esprit last year. Our daughter had her 2nd birthday in Obergurgl, so was a bit young to ski but she loved Ski Esprit's nursery/kids club - they played in the nursery, but also took them for trips in the bubble up the mountain to drink hot chocolate.

Another alternative might be Saas Fee, we've just got back from Christmas there. The village is around 1800m and the skiing goes up to 3000+m. Believe the Swiss ski school do short (1.5 hour "lesons" for tots). We travelled with Crystal Ski and stayed at the Alphubel Hotel which was really family friendly and includes a free all-day kids club (if your children don't go to ski school). But the transfer to Saas Fee is around 2.5 - 3.0 hour - our daughter slept and watched programmes we'd downloaded onto my tablet.

Thanks for both your replies!!

What was the Esprit accommodation like? I've heard mixed reviews about them.

I'll have a look at Saas Fee, though I think a 3 hour transfer may be pushing it.

Any other suggestions of resorts welcome. smile

We stayed in Chalet Alpenblume in Obergurgl with Esprit - it had obviously just been recently refurbished. The bedroom was nice - a bit on the tight side with a travel cot, but fine as we weren't spending much time in the bedroom.
