La Bresse Hohneck in February?

Have just booked for La Bresse Hohneck for the first week of Feb. Being at such a low altitude (in the Vosges region of North Eastern France in case you, like most people, haven't even heard of it).

It's about 3+ hours closer than driving to the Alpes, and seems great for the family, but I wonder if anyone has anything to say about the place?

I'll be snowboarding/skiing and the three kids 5, 8 and 12 will be skiing.

Thanks,

Steve

Hi,

I've been there three times. It will be good as family destination, but won't challenge a good intermediate skier. Go to Gerardmer too which is smaller, but has some nice tree lined slopes. For accomodation I would stay closer to Gerardmer and avoid La Bresse which is a bit grim.

It's actually La Bresse Hohneck where we're staying, which is right on the slopes (and very small) it was only built 2 years ago, and google street view shows it as a building site!

The webcam http://www.webcam-ski.com/interfaces/labresse/interface.php?pk_interface=457&m=images&r=historique&annee=2013&mois=1&jour=7 makes it look pretty patchy in places at the base of the slopes, but we're not going for a few weeks yet so hopefully they will get a bit more snow. The slopes look OK, but I don't think there will be much off piste this week.

Everyone I've spoken to have not even heard of the Vosges Mountains. Perhaps that's a good thing, as it always seems to be a British accent of the drunk idiot who wakes me up singing in the street at 3AM. No offence to any British non-idiots reading, but sometimes it's nice to get away from Brits.

I agree totally with the last paragraph ....... there are still some areas in the alps where you can get away from that element
