Where to go skiing in France?

So many ski areas and opportunities don’t make it easy to make a choice. The largest ski areas are located in Savoie. In the Vanoise Massif in the southern Savoie Alps you can find the famous resorts La Plagne, Val Thorens, Tignes and Valmeinier. One day this is the place where you will find the largest ski area and winter sports territory in the whole world! The ski area Trois Vallées offers over 600 kilometers of piste and 200 ski lifts. Three valleys are connected to make it that huge: Courchevel, Méribel, and Val Thorens/Les Menuires. It is really snow-sure and a popular place to go early season: Val Thorens is even the highest ski resort in Europe, laying at 2,300 m.

Isère is maybe the most versatile ski region in France. Isère reaches from the marginal mountain ranges of the French Pre-Alps to the Écrins Massif. The Écrins Massif offers an amazing high mountain scenery of the Dauphiné. It’s majestic!

Even more majestic is Europe's highest point, the Mont Blanc (4,810 m) which lays in the Haute Savoie. Haute Savoie is located in the eastern part of France, just at the boarder to the Swiss cantons Valais and Geneva and also at the boarder to Italy. It is amazing! Majestic mountain scenery meets beautiful landscape and lakes and rivers in the valley. Chamonix is a world famous place, hosting the Olympics in 1924, and has everything outdoor lovers and winter sport fans love. Just here you can select a variety of ski areas like Chamonix, les Portes du Soleil and La Clusaz. Les Portes du Soleil offers offers 650 km of pistes! It consists of 12 connected resorts that are partly in Switzerland. So you can just cross the border skiing and go back on your skis as well – easy! Not to mention the unforgettable views skiers and snowboarders are provided at a sunny day. And not to forget Aiguille du Midi (3,842 m), where the glacier run starts, one of the longest and most spectacular deep snow ski runs in the world of 20 km through the Vallée Blanche down to Chamonix.

Mont Blanc isn’t the only high mountain in France. Lots of high peaks are located in Hautes Alpes: The Barre des Ecrins (4,102 m), the most southern 4,000 m-peak or the Le Meije (3,983 m) and the Mont Pelvoux (3,946 m) that nearly touch the 4,000 m barrier. So you can imagine that winter sport fans find ideal conditions for diverse winter sports options.
