My brother has a Ford Transit which is spacious and comfortable. Our plan is to drive from London to an as yet undetermined ski resort in the French Alps. We plan to pay for parking in one of the resorts (around 15 euros per day) and sleep in the van for two - three nights.
My question is - what is the best French alps resort for our purpose? The car park needs to be near the slopes, obviously, or there should be a free shuttle bus to take us from the car park to the slopes. Also, a drive not exceeding 12 hours would be great. Do we need to book the car park in advance?
Any suggestions, and does anyone see any flaw in our plan?
EDIT: Does anyone have any suggestions for places to take a shower either for free or cheaply? Perhaps the camp sites will accept a little bargaining and let us take a shower for a euro or two each?:-)
