Le Clusaz or Brides les Baines

 Poster: A snowHead

Hi,
I have been offered le Clusaz and Brides les Baines as options for a short early January break for me and my two boys.
Any thoughts on these resorts. Brides in particular seems very cheap compared to other options.
Cheers

Brides-les-Bains is cheap because it is in the valley, and needs a 30 minute gondola ride to/from Meribel centre, with a 5 minute walk to the main lifts. As a result it perhaps has more of a "town" than a "ski-resort" feel. Some people are quite happy with this; others find it a pain: e.g. it doesn't really work if you want to return to your accommodation during the day.

The gondola up opens at around 08:30, so gets you to Meribel centre for main lift opening. In January the last gondola back down will be at about 5:00, so you can't go out in Meribel itself in the evening, and missing it means an expensive taxi ride back down. Eating out options in Brides are more limited.

La Clusaz is a ski resort. Brides-les-Bains isn't.

Brides les Bains is a spa (hence the "les Bains" bit).

We've been to La Clusaz for a long weekend in March for the last 2 years and are going again this season.

So its a +1 from me.

Good little ski area that although has a 'smallish' km of piste has different areas and you can get a sense of travelling about.

Nice little village/town.

This.

LC is very French.

Only caution -- LC slopes are low. However, snow should be fine in January.
