PRLog - Jan. 8, 2014 - February Half Term is the best time for families to ski with snow conditions at their optimum but often prices demand a premium. Pierre & Vacances has some good opportunities for families to still book for the half term week without breaking the bank.
Part of the Paradiski ski area, La Plagne has long been a favourite with British families. The resort benefits from a wide array of beginner and intermediate runs as well as superb English speaking ski schools. This year La Plagne has developed special ski areas available for just 28€ a day called Cool Ski. These areas are for those discovering or rediscovering skiing in protected zones serviced by easy to access lifts from each village centre. 7 nights at the Residence Plagne Lauze (http://www.pv-
