Stayed at Inghams Chalet de L'Arc for 1 cold (-21c) week,albiet sunny. Inghams chalet staff great and food ample to good. Inghams final transfer to Champery pathetic-left too little time-inghams obviously not aware regular traffic jams at weekends, exacerbated at half term weekends and coach drivers have limited hours before a break-would have missed plane if it hadn't been 45 minutes late arriving!
As usual French apartment was tiny with inadequate storage for clothes. no washing line over bath and no radiator-just unregulated warm air, minute ski boot room and ski storage and uncomfortable setteees, plus no external sign on chalet with chalet name-confusing on day 1.
Les ARC and easily reached La PLAGNE resorts are great for skiing but most of the chair lifts have no perspex bubbles to keep the wind off and the mina gondala's have those stupid inward sloping narrow seats that afford no relaxation.
In summary great skiing,poor lifts but possibly try different accomodation.
