    We are planning on heading out to Les Menuires and staying on the aire from Boxing Day for a few days. Has anyone had experience of how busy it might be? We really don’t want to get up there for it to be full. (We are a little flexible either side of Christmas Day.) I expect New Year to be busy, but not too sure how busy these places are over Christmas. Any advice is much appreciated.

    We were there last Xmas we got there on the 27th and there was room for maybe 3vans. At the moment the snow is falling well so people will be more spread out. Last year there was hardly any snow lower than about 1800m so Les Menuires was busy so you should be alright this year. If you are relying on getting EHU you will be lucky as not enough points for all you will have to be quick if someone leaves.

    Thanks for the reply. We will give it a go and hopefully all will be well.
    Hoping for a little more snow than that......or even a lot more!

    We were also there last year arriving on the 29th. Aire was busy but nit full and we had no problems parking. There are also plenty of overflow spaces in the area if you are stuck.
    Just be wary as we had our EHU cable stolen on the first night we were there which was a bit of a dampner

    May be an idea for others to put a chain on it to something, such as the tow hitch if the length allows?
