I can honestly say we love Ellmau! We'd tried several French resorts that specialize in families and kids but found them very regimented and unfriendly, especially towards the kids. The Austrian system is different, the ski schools take the kids all day, including lunch if you want, so they progress very quickly and enjoy whole days out on the Ski Welt, ranging miles from base.
