Val D'isere and Tignes are pretty good for beginners. Plenty of easy greens and blues though it does depend on the time of day and the weather. I get the feeling that in Val D'isere they sometimes mis mark runs to make it look like they have more beginner slopes than they really do but again this could simply be down to conditions on any given day.

My best advice woudl be to ahve a guide/instructor for a couple of days who can point you towards all the best runs within your capabilities and then you will avoid that horrible situation when you accidentily find yourself on a run that you aren't happy with.

"you will avoid that horrible situation when you accidentily find yourself on a run that you aren't happy with" I can say from experience that is not a nice thing to happen.

Thanks for the great review of Val D'isere. In my particular case I found myself stuck on a LONG ICY BLACK run. It wasn't plesent, especially at the end of the day, when the legs are tired.
