As a few friends of ours were going, we decided to return for the second time to Les Arcs. No one can fault the lifts here: modern and fast and the big ski area with good snow was a delight. Then I remembered why we started to give France a miss a few years ago and chose Austria and Italy: the prices. Every time you use a mountain facility you just feel ripped off. The prices are daylight robbery, usually served by a grumpy Frenchman who makes it feel Brexit is your fault. Also, the accommodation across these super expensive French resorts is super small and you end up with your son sleeping on a make shift bed by your feet. For the same cost in Austria you get a hotel with swimming pool. Our chalet owner reckons the skier numbers are dropping by 4% a year in France. Maybe they should look at their pricing? I'm off to Austria for Easter and probs Italy next year where a coffee still costs 2 Euros and a decent dinner on the slopes is under a tenner. Single sausage and small chips each for me and the boy and 2 soft drinks: 42 euros. Having a laugh, me thinks.
