Hi Superager,

I was planning to go to the French Alps for a ski holiday next year. Do you have any recommendations for a ski resort? I found a list with many destinations - but it is always hard to pick one without having enough information concerning conditions, prices, etc. I would be very thankful, if you could provide me with some tips.

All the best,

Two questions: - do you have a link to the Over Sixties Ski Club - I can't find it? Do you have difficulty getting insurance for skiing as an over 60?

That's a great idea - going with an over 60s group. I'm lucky I'm living in the French Alps at the moment. Went out this morning to a new place called Notre Dame de Bellecombe. It's not that easy to get going from there despite being a pretty village. Better to start from Les Saisies or from Praz sur Arly.
