I'm looking for ideas of where to go for next year.

this will be my 3rd trip previously been to Vemdalen in Sweden and the Grand Massif.

Ideally looking for somewhere with a good ski school and lots of easy blues to practice on

Also in Italy, take a look at the Madonna/Folgarida/Marilleva ski area which should suit you.

In the Innsbruck area I can recommend Seefeld, I think the main ski school on the piste is very good. Great pistes though the home run gets slushy in March. Nice smartish town.

Also for loads of wide easy pistes, Schlick2000 is fantastic. I know nothing about the instructors there; and would think you would need to base yourself in Innsbruck for much in the way of nightlife.

The big partying resorts tend to be tougher to ski IMO, partly because of the number of idiots "on the piste" (in both senses).

Are you going for a week or weekend or longer?

For a weekend try courmyeur. you walk on to lifts, the skiing is beatiful. the food is 100 times better than french crap and the itlians are beatiful. Plus they stop at 2pm to go and make themselves look good so you have the runs to yourself. The access to the trees there reminds me of canada. Its a little more chilled in terms of night life than french resorts, but if you fancy a night out you can always get a cab other to chamonix through the tunnel.

If you are going for a week, courmayeur is too small. I would go to tigne/val d'isere. But i've relaised basically peoples favourite resort for a week skiing is the one they went to where they had amazing snow. I've heard good things about the italian resorts already mentioned. Also a cute trick i used when my mates booked a sunday to sunday package for val disere was to get the train out on friday night, baord on my own for saturday/sunday (changeover days, think walking onto lifts all day) then they arrived sunday night, the flight was late of course.

if going for 8 days or more - i would fly to vancouver, then drive to revelstoke. It is the best place to ski/board ever. You do twice as much distance as in europe becuase the lifts are so fast and you cant physically ski 9am till 4pm becuase you will get tired. The powder is insance and the trees are more accessible and beatiful than europe. the only thing missing is the apres. it is small so you wont want more than 4 days there. i'd say three is enough. Then drive to kicking horse and the lake louise/banf spending a few days in each.

Boom! canada is where it is at, much more about sitting in hot tubs with a beer at the end of the day. But i did miss getting battered in a cool bar at the end of the day and maybe throwing some shapes while standing on a table.

But try not to tell too many people the above, becuase revelstoke is still qiute secret! interesting place too, they had all these grand plans, but it all went in the bin in 2007 when recession hit, so you end up with a very new, qiute small resort in terms of lifts, but 2 huge bowls to explore and massive verticle decent. I cant really explain why it is so much better than europe, you have to just go there. but only if you can cope without the apres.

now i am rambling.

peace
