It is getting that time of year that Mr Iceman is deciding where to go skiing.

I think I will be staying with good ol' safe France again in 2013 (unless come Nov I see conditions in Austria like we did this year!).

2013 I want to do things a bit different:-

1. 3 Valleys - been there done that (last season). Dont fancy
2. Espace Killy - to darn expensive and been there numerous times
3. PDS - Been there done that in Winter & Summer, getting a bit bored of it now!

I would like to go somewhere that I have not been before. It must tick the following boxes:

1. Reasonably large ski area
2. Not really pretentious
3. Not full of lads on stag do
4. Good snow record (high up)
5. Well linked (I have done Chamonix about 6 years ago & it was not very well linked up then)
6. Good bars etc

I have thought about ADH, are there any others out there that would fit the bill?

Grand Massif?
Fits the ski bill.
Only stayed in Samoens though and unfortunately I don't think the nightlife is up to much, though I know there's an Irish bar.
Good luck.

Heartily recommend the Grand Massif - once you've been you'll just want to keep coming back. Les Carroz is the pick of the villages - have a look at our site www.manxski.com

Les Arcs worth a look and have you considered Les Deux Alpes??
Serre Chevalier is a sweet little place as well.

For skiing I would put Les Arcs above Serre Chevalier and Les Deux Alpes, but these are both good resorts/places to ski.
Have a look at http://www.j2ski.com/ski-chat-forum/posts/list/12324.page for SC (read on for further comments). As I said I would love to go to SC with good/great snow conditions one year.
and ....
http://www.j2ski.com/ski-chat-forum/posts/list/11775.page#104945 for L2A

If the accomodation, price, etc etc was good I would consider any of these three.

It has to be Dolomitisuperski! 1200km inc 12 well linked ski areas with the addition of stunning scenery! Arabba is good base, (been there 5 years now and still have one area left that we haven't skied yet, going back in Feb 2013) but lacks the bars. How about Val Gardena or Corvara?
