Ski In France
Why choose France Ski Holidays?
- France has the world’s biggest snowfields, with 7 out of 10 of the world’s largest interconnected ski areas. The biggest, The Three Valleys, has over 600kms of linked runs and the longest ski route in the world is The Vallee Blanche at Chamonix.
- Each year millions of Euros are spent on all the resorts upgrading the lifts and resort infrastructure. This reassures visitors that the facilities remains both safe and state of the art.
- Because many of the French ski resorts are located at high altitudes, they have reliable snow conditions and longer seasons – some even go from late November through to the beginning of May.
- Ski schools in France have the highest qualified instructors and mountain guides in the world, many of whom are English-speaking.
- The French Alps are great value for money. The lift passes are cheaper than most countries and great deals can be had for January ski packages, since it’s low season in France even though it’s school holiday high season in Australia.
- There are over 350+ ski resorts to choose from, catering to all tastes and budgets. Top Snow has helped simplify the choice for you – we have selected only our top 20 French ski resorts for our offering.
Where To Stay
Choosing Your Accommodation
France has a great variety of resorts to suit all requirements from charming traditional villages, to high altitude glacier skiing, to family friendly resorts. Each ski resort has its own dominant style or styles of accommodation including:
- Serviced hotels, with or without meals
- Self-catering apartments
- Private alpine chalets, both catered and self-catering
- Wellness spas and retreats
- All of the above from affordable to luxury
How to Get to the Ski Fields in France
The fastest way to the French Alps
The most direct way to get to the French Alps from Australia is to fly into Geneva airport or Lyon airport, both serviced by premium airline Emirates offering economy, business and first-class travel (see video).
The French Alps can also be reached by Eurostar from London or Brussels and by TGV fast speed train from Paris.
On our resort pages, we advise which airport or train station is best to arrive at for each individual ski resort, as well as the time it takes to get from there to your destination of choice.LEARN MORE
