France is still tops for skiing

Most serious skiers agree that for great skiing holidays the French Alps are still the tops for a variety of reasons. Almost without exception the French Alps have really good snow conditions from the beginning of the ski holiday season in late December to the time of the spring snows in April or May. The French ski holiday resorts, although largely purpose built, have fantastic facilities all of which are geared up for the skier. The lift system in resorts such as La Plagne and the Trois Vallees are quick and efficient, just what you want on your ski holiday, no wasting time in queues when you should be sliding down the slopes!

If you are looking for a ski holiday at Val Thorens in the Trois Vallees, talk to your ski specialist about St Martin de Bellville where you will find some great chalet ski holiday deals. Similarly if you have always taken a ski holiday in Meribel, a gondola now connects from the resort of Brides-les-Bain and some great ski holiday deals are available.

Chalet holidays are tailor made for all group sizes, from a couple to a number of like minded people. The food is amongst the best to be found on a ski holiday; often this is prepared by cookery school graduates many to cordon bleu standard and these meals would compare favourably with that served up in a top French hotel just down the road, but at a fraction of the cost. Normally wine of your choice is served at the table and this usually seems to come from a bottomless carafe! French chalets have a wide choice of breakfast from cooked to “continental” and afternoon tea, usually a sumptuous cake, is waiting for you when you get back from the ski slopes.

All round France is still a great place to choose for your ski holiday and if you take the advice of your holiday specialist, fantastic offers are better than ever this year. By using the facilities of your ski holiday specialist you can usually find just what you are looking for to make your holiday perfect.
