Just returned from a 4 day ski weekend in the 3 Vallees with skiweekends.com It was my first package weekend trip . We travelled with skiweekends.com and they looked after us very well. We stayed in the Club Hotel Verseau in Brides Les Bains, (pronounced Breed la Ban) the staff in the hotel were great, really helpful. Hotel was clean and comfortable, food was excellent. Although Brides les Bains is a 20 minute gondola ride from Meribel, Ski Weekends ran a minibus to the gondola from the hotel from 08:15 onwards and from 16:30 back to hotel. (Although it was only a 10 minute walk.) I went in a group of 10 and nobody moaned about the Gondola ride, it was a relaxed way to start and finish the day. The timing of the weekend was very good as it meant I took only 1.5 days off work but skied for 4 days. I worked Thursday till 13:00 then drove to Liverpool Airport. Easy jet flight to Geneva. Ski Weekends met us then coach to resort, arriving about 22:30. Food was available for us on arrival. We then skied all day Friday, Saturday, Sunday and until 14:30 on the Monday. Coach left resort at 17:00 for Geneva, and we landed back in Liverpool at about 22:00. I would definitely recommend this as an option for either a cheeky weekend away or a main holiday because they also do full week breaks by coach or by air from UK. All being well I will be back next year. A tip for any skier. Book a locker on the piste in Meribel. (We used the one under the Saulire Express gondola) It cost us about 30 euros for a triple locker. We stored 3 sets of skis, three pairs of boots and three helmets, so we did the daily gondola commute in our après boots. A lot easier and it worked out about 10 euro's each for the 4 days
