Thanks Inkflo - we are very much inclined. Another reason why we moved to the Limousin.........no more easyjet flights (queuing.....) to the Alps etc as we can drive to Le Lioran and Mont Dore in less than 2hrs. Although we will still ski in the Alps having driven there I hope.

We checked out Le Lioran and Mont Dore one summer holiday time but I would be interested to seek advice. From what I remember you can drive "up the main street" at le Lioran and park opposite the "shopping" complex on your right. Although we have a 4 x 4 does anyone know if we are going to need chains to get right up to that where you can park ?

For Mont Dore, is it best to park in the town and then get what I believe is a little navette up to the slope?

Any advice welcome as I long to get my skis out. Thanks. K

There's some info here, you may have seen already, but hopefully other forum members can help.

For access to Mont Dore, we drive right up to the lifts and park there, although an early arrival is recommended to get a space. There is a point where you will have to put on chains if it is snowing, we have at times had the gendarmes stopiing us and others, its obligatory, no matter what vehicle.

Ill be there soon, hopefully.Very Happy

Thanks for the advice. Appreciate the bit about the chains. Been lucky enough to be sitting on a coach passing by all those being stopped in the lay by having to get out and put their chains on.........now that might be me !
