Hey All,
I am trying to find a resort that suits my whole family! Basically it has to suit my mum the most, she is a beginner skier in the fact that she doesn't have much confidence. We have skied in Covara, Italy a few times now, and she likes the wide open blue runs which run the whole way back to the village. However my sister, dad and myself are all a bit bored of the runs, and especially me and my sister are comfortably doing reds and starting blacks.
To suit us all, it has to have long blues, reds and blacks but not a huge area that is well known and gets crowed (another thing my mum hates). It doesn't have to be a large resort but enough restaurants or village feel to keep us occupied for a week. We are not bothered about transfer time as we travel by train a lot anyway so it's not exactly quick!
We would be travelling mid feb, so a higher resort would be ideal but not necessary.
Please help!!!

Not fussy then?
Have a look at Serre Chevalier. Might not be everyones cup of tea but its varied, got 4 distinctive sectors, and the towns are more traditional for France. I like the place. A lot.

What about Les Saisies and the "Espace Diamant" ski area?

185 kilometres of pleasurable skiing between the Beaufortain and the the Arly valley. Ski from resort to resort, from Les Saisies to Hauteluce, Flumet, Crest voland, Notre dame de Bellecombe and Praz sur Arly.
The Les Saisies ski area offer: 70 kilometres of slopes for every level of skier, from beginners to advanced.

It is known as a familiy resort.

I'd also imagine Les Seybelles might tick a few boxes too.
