StockportBreaker- are you back safely? How was your week in Soldeu, and how are the conditions?

Anyone else back recently to give a Trip Report for us?

Thanks.

Hi,

Yes, back safely, had a great week at the Piolets. Hotel was fine, now in need of a bit of a refit, which I'm told is happening in the closed season. great free ski lockers and a short walk to the gondola.

Food was mixed, some was good, but mostly OK. Staff were all very nice, helpfull and friendly. Happy hour 6 - 8 pm, 2 for one meaning a large beer worked out at 2 Euro.

No queues at the lifts, temperatures were around or above freezing most week with good on piste conditions, soft powder, not spring snow. Very low winds and plenty of blue skies and uncrowded runs, except for the saturday.

A great last minute break, enjoyed by all. The only downsides were the obligitory british louts who do not know how to behave after a drink ( though this was only on one night - Friday ), and the incompetent management and staff at Tolouse airport, the place is a shambles and the tour operators should fly elsewhere.

Will deffo be back at Soldeu next year.

Glad all went well, sounds like you had a great time. Totally agree about Toulouse airport, it is always a shambles. One time the cleaners were on strike, and were tearing newspapers up all over the floors everywhere. We didn 't use the Piolets lockers, as the sign said they were only free if you hired your equipment from their shop, and we had some of ours booked at Pic Negre with our package. We usually hire the ones at the gondola.

The weather sites had forecast warmer temps or rain I think, so glad that didn't happen. Shame about British louts spoiling things. We don't really get that during half term week- guess it is too expensive for them!

Do you do the sledging/ tubing night at El Tarter? That was fun last year, may do it again.

We are looking forward to Feb 14th, not long now !!
