Been to Montgenevres I remember skiing over to Italy and paying the same for a round of coffee to a single one in France. Stayed in the village at Courchevel.

We learnt to ski in Bulgaria great tuition all day and everything so cheap 27 years ago ish.The food was awfull but we had a great time.

Sauze d’Oulx in Italy cheap and cheerful resort, but alway wanted to go to Austria never managed it yet!

Val d'lsere a few times, Chamonix both over rated. And we went to Brekenridge Collerado after 9/11 it was cheap!

But i have to say loved ever minute of it.

I must say, I have a soft spot for Val D'Isere / Tignes ( a friend is a ski instructor there);  and I've also have been to Brekenridge.....but the best skiing in the States is in Utah, with Alta being a hidden powder gem (everyone goes up the road to Snowbird).

Livigno is the only Italian resort I've stayed in.

They have no conception of what ice actually is.

Alta gets 13M!  Dirol

It was snowing for 7 days and nights non stop. Then for another 3 days it snowed each night. So we skied on fresh snow every day, mostly powder. Unbelievable!

this is the first season I ski after getting fit. It made a huge difference. I used to get sore legs by the end of each ski day, this time I could ski parts of the last red run of the day on one leg. It surprised me pleasantly!

Skiing on powder is very flattering......and with your new wider skis, would have been very good indeed.......weeks like that come once every 10 years, if you're lucky.

The older you get, the more important fitness becomes.....and skiers use certain muscles that are different to most other sports.
