    Hello Folks, I am new to the site, I am planning on going skiing January 2013 to Meribel and Grand Bornand, which is basically a repeat of this years ski adventure which was a blast. Is anyone planning something similar, be pleased to hook up or join other travellers.

    Hi 1948, I saw the post you mentioned by Jonandshell, I stayed at http://www.restaurant-martagon.com/fr/caravaneige.html which I really like and plan on doing the same in 2013. My preliminary dates are 6/7 Jan - 26 Jan but all fluid at the moment. Yes be more than happy to meet up.:Smile:

    hi
    my shedule for Jan is from 9th to 22nd and have no fixed plan except that may go to La Plagne 2nd half of schedule to meet up others ( not finalized ) Will probably head stright to Valthoren to meet other funsters first weather permitting at 2300M there is always a chance of adverse conditions Is the campsite you booked the one half way up the bobble lift from Bride la bain to meribel

    just interested to know - is the skiing avaliable directly from this site or do you have to travel i.e. bus or walk to the slopes. Also is there much in the area?
    Stayed in Val Thorens last year but think we passed this place.

    Yeah!

    Like the sound of that! 'Unofficial' sounds a bit rebellious!

    Reject the campsites, burn your hookup lead, smash up your aquaroll, say 'no' to long hot showers! Put two fingers up at the establishment and come to VT!!!!!!:BigGrin:

    lavalamp can confirm if this is correct
    though meribel and val throrn are linked skiing wise To get to repective resort by road starts from valley floor way down below so you would not have passed the place on the way up to Val throrn
    Hence the very expensive taxi ride if you miss the last lift of the day to get back to one of the resort you stay in

    VT is so so last year :Wink:

    The way forward is Les menuires aire de camping car and a French speaking person to get your tokens for the Electricity machine, and then, us competent skiers will simply ski all over the valley(s) without suffering the -30 of last year, pay less, be in a more pictures town and warmer. :Wink:

    although for the life of me, I can't get this bloody Mily way at Montgeneve out of my head.....I just know Im going to end up there,
    oh BTW, hope it starts snowing soon or we are all going to look a little strange with skis and no where to ski. Come on God sort it out.
