Skiing

Thinking of a last minute Xmas or NY skiing break.

Only been skiing once and that was 20 years ago so really haven't got a clue about how, where, when etc

Two adults, two kids aged 13 and 16 who have never been skiing before.

Any advice gratefully received

Tia

Sierra Nevada near Granada. Cheaper than other places, two hour flight and if they don't like the skiing then lots to do in Granada.

I Went for the first time this year to La Plagne, with a day in Les Arcs. I found it a lot better for beginners in Les Arcs so I've booked to go back there in February. We've decided to travel by Eurostar on the overnight train this time rather than fly, and gain an extra day's skiing.

Swadlincote is just down the road and should be right up your street. No dodgy foreign muck on the menu, plenty of tomato sausages for breakfast, even speak the lingo.

Even hard nuts from Worksop don't venture into Swadlincote. Although if the TS is up to scratch, I'd risk it.

Castleford?

Indoor slope so no risk of being washed out if it rains, like it always does.

We go every year. Great for all but very advanced. You can stay in the resort but more fun in Granada or the villages around. I may know someone who has a house to rent too...

Don't go at Xmas. High chance of non existent snow plus exorbitant prices and crowds

Me too, but my place might be a bit too far for him.
