How can we say it? Size matters and France simply has the largest ski network and best variety of resorts in the world.

The French Alps are ideal for ambitious intermediates keen to clock up as many kilometres as possible on the mountain or to venture off-piste. But with 425km of terrain in the Paradiski region and a massive 600km in Les Trois Vallees, French resorts offer something for everyone, including families, groups and couples.

From traditional Savoyarde villages to modern convenient resorts, the choice is yours. Many resorts offer ski-in, ski-out accommodation that’s ideal for families and excellent crèche facilities for younger children while ‘foodie’ couples will revel in gourmet stores, Michelin star restaurants and thermal spas.
