Choosing Your Resort

Choosing your resort can seem a bit of a minefield, although the traditional alpine working villages are very charming they weren't designed with the skier in mind. Purpose built resorts may not be so pretty but you will find everything at your fingertips with the majority of hotels and chalets ski-to-door.

If the kids are coming too, try and stay near the nursery slopes to escape those long arduous walks in ski boots. France is a very family ski friendly country, they are always welcome in restaurants whatever the time and the lift handlers will stop the lift if necessary for children to hop on with ease.

Give your well-being a boost by taking fewer days off to relax and enjoy yourself or really get stuck in on the slopes. Increase your confidence, your skills and your energy levels

At famous French resorts you can experience on Ski Weekends France include Chamonix, Les Gets and Méribel with some of the best ski and snowboard conditions in the World. La belle France also happens to have excellent ski schools with English speaking instructors and, of course, mouth-watering French cuisine to keep you fully fuelled.

Within just a few hours of leaving home, you’ll be putting your weekend bag safely in your chalet and heading out on the slopes.

Apres Ski

Apres-ski in France is wild; the cosmopolitan mix of visitors each year wanting to let their hair down contributes to a vibrant, lively atmosphere.

Have a couple of vin chaud (mulled wine) on your way back down where you'll find an eclectic choice of live music and energetic hoards of skiers and boarders dancing on tables quaffing down restorative beverages.

Even non-skiers will have heard of the infamous Dicks Tea Bar in Val d'Isere. Other top resorts for apres-ski include Chamonix, Morzine and Meribel.

About the Alps

Of course, the Alps weren't always the target of ski and snowboard fanatics. Before tourism was introduced to the peasant farmers of the mountains, the meadows were filled with livestock which was tended to see the locals through the hard winter months. Obviously when they realised how much money could be tapped from affluent skiers then it was down with the pitch-forks and up with the skis! Lift systems sprang up to link rapidly expanding ski areas.

The shepherd's cabins became mountain restaurants and enterprising wives converted their front rooms into bars and cafes. The traditional fare still influences the resorts restaurants today, potatoes, cheese, onions and pork seem to be the base for many of their dishes such as Tartiflette, Salade Savoyarde, Fondue Savoyarde, Raclette and Brasserade. It's not much fun if you're not a cheese fan as the smell of the local Reblochon cheese does tend to permeate most restaurants.
