Ski Holidays in France
The French say that they have the greatest mountains on earth - with their portfolio of ski resorts this may well be true.
The French Alps represent the quintessence of a European ski holiday. Winding roads leading up to breath-taking mountain views. Swathes of evergreen forests, endless glaciers and jagged peaks blanketed in pristine snow as far as the eye can see. The waft of fresh bread and coffee on crisp winter mornings invigorates your senses before long days exploring vast ski areas accessible to all abilities – resorts are often linked together by ski lifts – and relaxing afternoons enjoying a glass or two of vin chaud on a mountainside sun terrace. With some of the most well-known ski resorts in the world including Val d'Isere, Courchevel, Meribel and Chamonix (just to name a few). Combined with the highest mountains in Europe, France is an obvious choice for your seasons’ ski holiday and boosts some of the best snow records year on year.
Ski Resorts In France
All French ski resorts are served by major airports and with quick transfers straight to resort so it’s no wonder that over 100,000 people travel to French ski resorts every year. Family friendly ski resorts with steep off piste are a norm and you would be hard pushed to find so many world class ski resorts in such a close proximity.
French resorts are varied in size, some purpose-built and some classic alpine towns steeped in history. Both ways, the variety is outstanding and most resorts cater for all types of winter enthusiast (even if you don’t ski or snowboard!), whether on a budget or looking for something a little more special.
