Plan Your Trip
France and skiing go hand in hand. Including resorts such as Val D'Isere & Tigne, The Three Valleys and Chamonix, France is probably one of the most frequently traveled ski destination in Europe. Here you can ski the French Alps for a week, and then enjoy a few days rest in Paris, or Lyon before going home. Unlike Austria, you will find most of the resorts are ski in/out locations directly on the mountain.

Situated in a vast natural cirque overlooked by 6 glaciers, the Val Thorens ski area offers a multitude of itineraries so you can ski in the sunshine all day long.
