Think of France, and the first things that come to mind are cheese, wine and croissants.

All of those are ‘très bon’, but for those who love to hit the slopes, skiing is epic there too!

Huge ski areas, high-altitude skiing, and of course, fantastic food and wine.

There are countless options when it comes to skiing in France but the most iconic is of course, the Alps. The French Alps include ‘Les Trois Vallées’, one of the largest connected skiing areas on the planet, with destinations such as Val Thorens, Tignes, and more. As well as stunning views from the piste, you know the breakfast will be just as good!
