France Ski Holidays 2016/2017
Skiing in French Alps started as late as in mid-1960s. Since then several hundred resorts have been growing furiously and attracting huge numbers of people to mountain villages and towns. Due to a popularity built by beautiful mountain ranges, extensive skiing and some very skilled French professional skiers bringing glory to their country, many resorts are being constantly improved and updated, and most have been built in traditional styles, making them generally really nice places to be.
The overwhelming majority of the skiing in France takes place in the Alps, which stretch up to about 3,300m above sea level and which therefore have quite long ski seasons, with some resorts providing snow and skiing all year round. Furthermore, most ski resorts in France
are connected into a larger skiing area - buying one ski pass for the entire area ensures tons of skiing for your money. In fact, in some places it is going to be hard to ski every available kilometer, e.g. the 3 Valleys ski resort
offers 600 km of marked runs.
You’ll find everything from traditional chalets through to five star hotels in the French Alpine resorts. Skiing in France is not a cheap option, but the bang for your buck is very worth it - the millions of skiers coming to French ski resorts
every year will attest to that.
