Stayed at the Hotel Planibel Apartments last week (27/01/13 - 03/02/13) and was thoroughly impressed. First off, what a location, mountain views to be had all around and literally a minute walk to the main gondola and chair lift! We arrived at the hotel early afternoon but check in isn't until around 5pm. So wasn't very happy especially as we had been up since 3am to get our flight! The Planibel resort so big and has so much that you kind of forget that the entire village of La Thuile is outside the resort and waiting to be explored! The apartment we booked had a double room with en-suite, a twin room with a balcony, main bathroom, lounge/diner and a kitchen. All rooms were of a decent size and there was utility area to hang up wet ski gear! Only problem was the kitchen which only had 1 plug and wasn't very well stocked.
The actual skiing was simply faultless, we had good snow at the beginning of the week but the weather did turn as the week went on. Overall on the Wednesday/Thursday we had a total of about 3/4 foot of snow at the top of the mountain. Also there was a very strong wind. The resort has a good mixture of runs to suit all, A nice big wide area of blues, with Reds and Blacks scattered across the mountain.. Run 7 (Red) is 11km long and is pretty spectacular as it takes over the top of the mountain and back round all the way to La Thuile. Food on the mountain and in the ressort was reasonably priced as was the alcohol and soft drinks!
The resort as a whole is very quiet and this is perfect is my opinion. There was good slopes and no queues for the lifts!
The ski school instructors were faultless and were good fun!
Overall I would recommend this to absolutely anyone who is a skier/boarder
