Hi Guys and gals!!
I'm doing a drive ski mid FEB in Val Thorens and wondered if there was anywhere that is good to book last min (i.e as we are approaching Lyon on the toll roads) as I'm concerned there wont be anywhere available.
Can any one shed some light on this????

Are you looking for somewhere to stay en-route, or in Val Thorens?

Either way, you're unlikely to have any problem finding somewhere in mid-November; that's very much pre-season so hotels in and out of resort should have plenty of room.

Quite a few J2Skiers drive down so hopefully someone can chip in with recommendations?

HI Admin

we are looking for accommodation when we arrive on site. will there be savings to be made if we book/ check in on the same day?

Ah, right - somewhat different scenario then!

Mid-Feb is going to be very busy; with the way the snow has been falling there will be very few, if any, cancellations this year so if you're set on Val Thorens you should really look at getting it booked ASAP.

BUT... does it have to be VT? Unless there's a heatwave (and a monsoon) you're not going to need the altitude in February so might find more options amongst the smaller resorts that don't get so crowded at half-term?

That is peak-season though, so worth doing a bit of planning wherever you want to head.

I really wouldn't recommend waiting to the last minute for accommodation during French and British half-term. Also you'll probably have to bring your own linen. As Admin says, with the snow the way it is, people will be booking up. I doubt you'll make any savings if you can even find anywhere as you will be charged rack rate as a drive-up.
