We are heading off to the Alps for the last 2 weeks of August and need some advice for a good family location - I want to ride quality singletrack / DH / all mountain type terrain (160mm travel bike) but need something accessible for the wife and kids (5yr old boy has skills but 10yr old girl and mum are not so confident). We also need good range of activities off piste e.g. waterpark, as they weren't too keen on riding for 14 days back-to-back (fickle!). Have looked at Les Gets, Les Arcs and La Rosiere as potential bases but me and the better half are not quite seeing eye to eye on which location will best suit our needs.
Any advice would be welcome
ps. also plan to watch the WC DH at Meribel too
