The opportunity of soaking up the alpine way of life makes proper mountain towns like Chamonix and gorgeous mountain villages like Megeve feature on many a ski bucket list. It’s the glamorous side of skiing that brings the hordes to Courchevel, world renowned for its elite clientele, designer boutiques and top notch accommodation. If convenience is the key, you can’t beat the hassle-free nature that attracts snow lovers by the dozen to purpose built resorts like Val Thorens– they’re higher in the mountains and access to the slopes is a no brainer.
With the mountains being so easy to get to and resorts that pull out all stops to keep children entertained, it’s no surprise France is so popular with families. Look out for the French Ministry of Tourism’s “Famille Plus Montagne” label, awarded to the best family resorts - Morzine and Les Gets are two firm favourites. Groups planning to party are rarely disappointed with the après ski offerings in the bigger towns– you can’t talk about the après in France without mentioning the legendary Folie Douce – originally in Val d’Isere and now also in Val Thorens and Meribel.
At the end of the day it’s the skiing you’re here for, which is why anywhere with a massive ski area is an easy favourite. You won’t have to ski the same slope twice in the 3 Valleys, the world’s biggest linked ski area, where you’ll find big names like Meribel and Courchevel. Sizeable ski areas don’t stop here – Tignes and Val d’Isere share the Espace Killy, Paradiski can be skied from La Plagne and Les Arcs and Portes du Soleil connects Morzine, Les Gets, Avoriaz. The presence of a skiable glacier seals the deal when it comes to the best resorts, which puts snow sure Val Thorens, Val d’Isere, Tignes and Les 2 Alpes high up on the leaderboard.
