Ski Resorts In France

Why choose a ski resort in France?

France is and has always been the top choice for British skiers. It’s easy to see why, the ski areas are big the skiing is high and snow sure and the ski lifts are fast. Most of the ski resorts are easy to reach whether you choose to travel by plane, Train or car. Read more........

Ski Resorts In FranceThe most popular ski holiday type in French ski resorts are catered chalets, we offer over 1200 different ski chalets most of which are in France. France also has more than its fair share of quality hotels and the widest choice of self-catered apartments. More and more of our clients are now booking a Club Med all-inclusive skiing holiday. Club Med is a French company that’s delivering such great value for money that nearly one in 10 holidays we now sell is to a Club Med resort hotel.

Most popular ski areas in France

We love the large linked ski areas such the Three Valleys with 600 km of pistes which links Meribel, Courchevel and the lofty Val Thorens, Europe’s highest ski resort. Other popular ski areas include the Espace Killy which connects Frances number one ski resorts of Val d’Isere and Tignes.

The Portes du Soleil is the world’s largest international linked ski area, with 600 km of popular ski resorts on the French/Swiss border with popular ski resorts such as Morzine, Les Gets and Avoriaz.

The Paradis ski area is the latest of Frances mega linked ski areas and brings together the Les Arcs and La Plagne ski areas to the perfect intermediate ski area. The Grand Massif ski area is little visited (by British skiers) and is a gem that more skiers should visit, the most popular ski resort in this ski area is Flaine.

Don’t miss out on the many ski resorts in France that aren’t big linked ski areas, Most offer over 150km and include ski resorts such as Valmorel, Alpe d’Huez, Les Deux Alpes and Serre Chevalier which are all popular ski resorts with our clients.

Après ski in French ski resorts

Nearly all French ski resorts make an effort to offer a good après ski side, although we still prefer the Austrian way best. Après ski is in two parts in France, the immediately post ski party of which the Folie Douce now operating in Five resorts is the clear winner. Later in the evening when the bars come to life. If a party is important for you when skiing pick your ski resort carefully as not all ski resorts in France are equal when it comes to party time.

France for Families

France is a good choice for a family skiing holiday, there are plenty of catered ski chalets, some of which have a crèche with childcare available. Club Med also include childcare and full day ski lessons when booking one of their all-inclusive skiing holiday.
