Best skiing resorts for varying abilities...?

Were planning a huge family skiing holiday in late January but amongst us there's some very advanced skiers and some total beginners. It has to be relatively cheap so it can't be in like Canada or something and we'd like there to be other things to do as some wont want to be skiing all week. Anyone got any suggestions?


We'd love to go skiing in the USA or Canada but we live in the UK and it's just too expensive...

    I'm sure the very advanced skiers will be able to advise, particularly as they will have been to many ski resorts already and may be able to make a more appropriate choice.

    I would suspect that the best option would be self catering driving across the channel to somewhere like Val Thorens, Les Menuires, Tignes, or maybe even a smaller resort with no cars like Avoriaz. (although it is not that good for experts)

    These are all in France. People say it is cheaper in Austria, and Italy, but it depends on what you spend money. Family ski groups tend not to spend a lot on apres ski, so France should be fine.

    Copper Mountain is expert on the East Village side, intermediate in the Center Village, and beginner at West Village. Hiking is a great option for those who do not enjoy the slopes. Also, shopping is available in Silverthorne and Breckenridge.
