Ródano-Alpes Comentários

Everything in Chamonix, is truely remote from any skiing. I wouldn't go back, mostly because Chamonix as a ski area is over-rated. It's lots of small ski areas spread out. Lifts are slow, crowded, and you have to take a lift up above the tree line before you can take another lift to begin skiing. Go to Tignes instead...
Lyon has the best food in France, period. Save money by cooking in Paris, eat out in Lyon. Night life is good Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
If it is on-piste boarding/skiing you are after, Chamonix may not be the place for you. I am halfway through a season here and am just beginning to discover that it is all about the off-piste. That is the big deal with Chamonix.
Annecy is heaven on earth.
Annecy is aewsome. You should definitely go to the parks. One is next a lake and you can paddle boat up to the edge of a cliff. The buildings and briges are all very pretty.
We decided on Annecy on a whim and what a lucky whim it turned out to be. Beeeautiful, picturesque Annecy is in France, yes, but the architecture is very swiss. Big ol Chalet type houses, incredible lake front mountain view. Not only do you step back in time, with the well-preseved buildings, but you step out of the caotic rush of some of the larger cities in France. Annecy has all the amenities of a big town, but provides a very welcome respite to backpack weilding travellers. Come here to relax, eat and sleep. Just not to party, cause their ain't to much going on. I lucked out because when I was there, there was a huge music festival, and we followed an amazing Brazilian band through the old town. They would stop periodically, forming a circle encouraging us to dance in their midst. That was living. Annecy is a retreat, a story book escape.
