I want to take my two children (13 & 16) skiing immediately after christmas. My youngest had her confidence knocked by going to a totally inappropriate resort for beginners last year (Champoluc if you're interested). One brochure refers to a "green" circuit at Obertauern although there don't seem to be any actual green runs. Is it true that some (how many approx?) of the blue runs have "wonderful open slopes to give the beginner and 2nd time skier confidence"? That sounds perfect but I want to be sure.
Also, does anyone have any historical info regarding the snow record at this time of year (27 Dec to 3 Jan)? I nearly cried when we arrived in Champoluc at easter earlier this year to be greeted with green fields and not a snowflake in sight in the village. Snow up the mountain obviously, but not great!
Finally, if you have any other suggestions for a great beginners ski holiday at this time of year, please feel free to let me know! Europe please.
Thanks very much in advance.
