Skiing in France – The Best French Ski Resorts
France has made itself a country of mystery, love and fantasy with iconic history such as the Mona Lisa and the Da Vinci code to delicacy food of snails and frog legs. France is also known for its chic cafes, designer shopping and having Paris as the fashion capital of the world is a statement in itself. Just a short distance away, from all the hustle of the city, you can escape to pure white powdery heaven. With a mulled wine in one hand and the crackle of a log fire in front of you, just breathe in and relax. The next day after your needed rest, get up and head to the slopes… get in touch with your inner child and enjoy yourself.
If you’re new to skiing prepare for a few bumps but once you get the hang of it there is nothing holding anyone back from returning to slopes day after day, year after year. Skiing can be enjoyed by all ages and will accommodate all requirements; whether it is a family holiday or a group get away to throw some tricks on the pistes, skiing is fun for all and skiing in France is even better!
France is home to over 20 ski resorts, each one dominant and holding their own. Some of the largest ski resorts are located in France such as Alpe d’Huez, Les Deux Alpes and Val d’Isère. La Plagne is a bit of a celebrity amongst the French Ski resorts; offering a high altitude, 425km of pistes, tree lined runs and skiing above the clouds on the Bellecote glacier. La Plagne can accommodate all levels of skiers offering nursery slopes for beginners and advanced skiers can take a trip up to Bellecôte glacier to face a 2000m near vertical drop for 15kms of skiing.
If tradition is important to you, then Valloire and La Rosiere are perfect for keeping a traditional theme throughout their resorts. The Valloire ski resort is built around a 17th Century Baroque-style church and La Rosiere, a French style village, has an authentic feel and links to the Italian resort of La Thuile. The people of France are extremely family focused and if you are looking for resorts that make for a welcoming family holiday experience then Chamrousse, La Tania and Valmorel are three perfect French ski resorts to meet all of your expectations for a family Ski holiday. All of these resorts offer children’s clubs and activities to keep the little ones busy whilst you take to the slopes.
They say that a skiing holiday is a difficult one to compete with and taking to the French slopes will provide lasting memories with friends, family and loved ones that other holidays simply will not compare to.
