There are some really wide blue pistes above Arc 1800. Plenty of space to work on the technique.
Aiguille Rouge is fun from 3,226m if you fancy a black run!

Reading all the info, I like the look of Vallandry but can anyone tell me what facilities there are for complete beginners. Also, we have one not too confident intermediate - how difficult is it to get back to Vallendry from up the mountain - it looks like there are lots of blues, but can anyone tell me how difficult they are. Any info would be great. Many than ks.
You will have no problem what so ever.
Fantastic place to learn.
Stay in Arc 1950 or 2000 if you can and the beginners will get the bug.

Agreed. That's where I would head to if I was a beginner. Vallandry also ok but obviously further down the mountain for early season.
Valandry is not a bad choice but somewhere central in 1800 may be a better bet for the beginners and novice skiers especially as you are planning a trip pretty early in the season.
