Destination

So, when you are planning your ski holiday in France, which destination should you choose? Generally speaking, this will largely depend on your personal preferences and requirements and any financial constraints that you have. A few examples of great skiing resorts in France are; Alpe d'Huez, Avoriaz, Brides Les Bains, Chamonix, La Plagne, Les Deux Alpes, Meribel & Mottaret, St. Sorlin d'Arves & La Toussuire and Valloire – to name just a few! Before you book your France ski holiday, it’s wise to research a few destinations first, to find out whether or not they are suitable for you and establish which one you would prefer.

Check Amenities

A lot of first time skiers will opt for the first skiing holiday resort that they see – however, this can be a big mistake. There’s nothing worse than booking a destination and then finding out upon arrival that it doesn’t offer all of the amenities that you need. Here’s an example; if you are a first time or inexperienced skier, you will need a selection of smaller slopes to practice on (i.e. ‘starter’ slopes) and ideally an on-site ski instructor to help you get started. On the other hand, if you are a seasoned skier, you will probably require more challenging slopes, so take into consideration your needs as an individual and family (especially if you plan on taking children with you on your skiing trip to France).

Also compare the kinds of accommodation that are available at skiing resorts carefully to find the best possible fit for you and your needs. You may opt for a larger hotel, with all of the amenities and services that you will need during your holiday on-site or you may prefer to book a self-catering chalet and cook your own meals. Whichever option you choose, with a little planning and research you are bound to find a brilliant Ski holiday in France.
