The location of your accommodation is another important consideration for a number of reasons. First of all how far is the residence from the centre of the resort? Although your accommodation will more than likely be self-catering you may still like to go out in the evenings to the local restaurants and entertainment venues. Therefore, somewhere that is only a short walk to the resort centre is a real benefit. Is the residence offering door step skiing, this is an added benefit especially for the children, as they will probably have some difficulty in walking in their ski boots and you will certainly be left carrying an armful of ski equipment to the nearest lift.

The majority of the resorts that Ski collection feature are what are referred to as purpose built resorts. This simply means they have been developed primarily as a ski resort rather than being traditional villages. These villages offer excellent ski opportunities but can have their own disadvantages in that because they have not been developed with the skier in mind the location of amenities may not be ideal. This is where purpose built resorts come into their own. There are some resorts that are car-free with everything you need close at hand and also benefiting from door step skiing. An excellent example of such a resort would be Arc 1950.
