France is the world’s most popular country for skiing. With areas like Le Trois Vallees and Espace Killy not to mention the Portes du Soleil, Grand Massive and Paradiski, it is very easy to understand why.
France caters for all tastes, standards and budgets. You can go for a purpose built resort or an old village. You can choose a high end resort or go for a more moderately priced destination – and do so without sacrificing the quality of skiing.
On the piste, the French are meticulous with their piste grading and mapping.
Every year the French resorts are becoming livlier, better equipped and with ever improving lunch optons and an ever expanding choice of ski school, its hard to look elsewhere.
