Family skiing in France

With heaps of convenient accommodations, fun and relaxed pistes, and high-quality instructors, a family ski holiday in France is dreamy, even with little ones in tow.
Resorts such as Avoriaz and Les Arcs have proven themselves as some of the best ski resorts for families, with Avoriaz consistently earning the coveted 'Famille Plus Montagne' certification. For big family-friendly ski areas, head to Flaine or La Plagne. Both are packed with miles of fluffy white pistes, great self-catered accommodation and plenty of kid-friendly restaurants.
And if short transfers are essential, La Clusaz gets our vote. It’s a cosy, traditional resort, only 50km from Geneva - with the added bonus of plenty of ski-in, ski-out options available.

Group skiing in France

Whether with friends or family, a group ski holiday in France is a great bet, with big accommodations, big ski areas and even bigger après-ski.
With four different ski areas to explore and plenty to keep you occupied off the slopes, it doesn't get much better than Chamonix for intermediate and advanced groups.
If you’re all about long days on the mountain, then the huge ski areas of Tignes and Val d'Isère are a perfect choice. With miles of easy terrain for groups of beginner skiers and tons of technical pistes for more experienced skiers.
Groups looking for an après-ski holiday should slide down to Val Thorens or Meribel. Combining lively boots-on-the-table après-ski with loads of accommodation options, it’s easy for the whole group to have fun together.
And for a ski resort that ticks just about every box, Les Deux Alpes packages up glacial skiing, varied terrain, booming apres and plenty of non-ski activities. All the ingredients for an unforgettable group ski trip.
