    Righto, we have skied at Les Deux Alpes for the last 3 years at Easter. Fancy trying a different area next Easter, which falls later than previous years. Anyone have any experience of Camping Indigo, using the funicular to Les Arcs and generally any other information that would be useful? Thanks in advance.

    Come on. How old are you ? Surely old enough to have worked out that if you throw yourself off a cliff you have to come to grief.

    Get to Benidorm, hop on your mobility scooter, pick a nice cafe next to the beach, order a cafe and soberano and r-e-l-a-x. Only €2. It's a no brainer.

    It is a sign from the gods, aka JIM. Don't do it. I see pain and tears in your tea leaves.

    Hi Michelle what about the Aire at Alpe d Huez (no electicity) but the skiing is ok
    and the runs back down are not massively congested at the end of the day like at L2 A

    Hi Michelle
    Just rerurned from camping indigo at les Arcs.
    Easy access to the slopes on the bourg st maurice funicula. Ski bus stops roght at canpsite and campsite staff will do extra booked pickups if needed
    Altgo6ugh it was comfortAble i wouldn't stay there again due to no wifi except in reception room, bad smelling toilet blocks always and crazy price of 8e a night electric hook up even in good spring weather which we had. I complained about all three points. Almost totally brits there too - personal preference i prefer a bit of a mix. Probably because of the Eurostar taking them straight to the station. Apparently there is a cheaper better one just a bit further up the road.....

    Also the slopes SO much busier than at les deux alps. I actually felt like i was at a theme park last week as it was crazy busy imo yet others were saying ' no its not too bad you should see school holidays ' ...

    Bit late with this but there is a site or was at Piesey Nancroix called Les Lanchettes which we stayed at in 2016. Bus stops outside the front door and takes you to the vanois express for 9.00. Good drying rooms and toilets etc. Even a little bar.

    This year we have been touring around, currently in the Les 2 Aple aire finishing up in a couple of days. However we found Val Cenis and Bonneval Sur Arc (back side of Val D'Isere and goes to 3200 meters) All have north east facing slopes but are smaller than L2A and Les Arc but boy the snow, this year anyway, has been excellent. Good campsite in Lansleville, excellent toilet facilities and an ACSI site as well.
