Which resort to choose?

Les Arcs is the easiest to reach, it's linked by a 10-minute funicular (mountain railway) ride up the mountain from Bourg St Maurice railway station at the foot of the mountain.  It's a modern resort, good for beginners, and billed as 'home of the snowboard'. 

Val d'Isère is a well-known resort higher up the valley, better for intermediate and advanced skiers than beginners. 

Méribel is a big ski city with many British visitors. 

La Plagne is a series of picturesque villages and tree-lined pistes.
