We are planning to drive to the Alps for the first time next Easter.
Any suggestions for a resort that's easy to drive to, with free lift pass and good ski school for a 5 year old and family friendly apres, ideally with a nice pool with slides and water play - like Avoriaz but more snowsure? Thanks smile

Anyone?? Someone must have driven to the Alps at Easter??

I think it's probably the water slides part puzzling people. Don't think there is anywhere like that outside Avoriaz.

We drive toFlaine. Friends to Alpe d'Huez. Close to autoroute is key. High for snow. Easter is early next year I think so not such an issue re snow.

grin yeah water slides might be a bit optimistic/specific but I remember someone on here mentioning an Austrian resort with kids splash pool.
Thanks for the suggestions. We have to go first week of April. Is Flaine snowsure enough for April?

No idea about driving there but Tignes Le Lac has a pool with some slides and is high enough (plus glacier) for April skiing

I'd say Tignes...., I can never understand the need for anything other than snow though grin. <addicted to snow> it has a pool apparently

We drove to Les Arcs 1950 when we went with small children. We took Lego & they were happy to play when they weren't skiing. They found skiing & playing in the snow tiring enough.

We've driven to alpe d'huez and la plagne at easter. I'd also go to les arcs.
Alpe d'hyez has an outdoor pool. Not sure about la plagne

Soelden in the Austrian Tyrol is good for families and snow sure at Easter as it has 2 glaciers. It's a long drive from south east of England but we usually stop overnight somewhere on the way like Brussels or in Germany and the quality of snow and empty slopes more than make up for the long drive. There's a huge leisure centre in the village with pool, slides, lazy river etc and lots of family friendly eating places.
