France is the world’s Numero Un ski nation thanks to its thousands of miles of snowy pistes. French resorts boast the highest altitude in the Alps, guaranteeing snow and high prices to match. France excels in easy motorway (freeway) skiing but also has very easy runs for beginners and intermediate skiers as well as some of the toughest runs in the world. Prices though are excruciatingly high and often double those of Austria or Italy.

  • Sainte Foy

    Ste Foy is a rarity in France - idyllically small with traditional architecture and hardly any crowds.

  • Montgenevre

    Montgenèvre is part of the massive 650km Italian border - straddling Via Lattea (Milky Way) ski area. But Montgenèvre, already praised by the Good Ski Guide as the perfect Ski Easy resort, is well worth a visit in its own right.

  • Megeve

    With its expensive chalet-style architecture, boutique shopping and picturesque snow-covered streets, Megeve is resplendent in an alpine charm that many a purpose built resort will aspire [and fail] to emulate.

  • Les Contamines

    If the fur-coat-and-Ferrari glitz of Megève is not your scene then drive a few more miles to find rural French perfection in tiny Les Contamines.

  • Chamonix

    Mountain lovers and extreme skiers flock to Chamonix, the Alps’ most famous mountain town, at the foot of Mont Blanc.
