If you’re looking for a skiing holiday in France that is set at a bit more relaxed pace then it would be well worth visiting the new Lake Annecy Ski Resorts. These are a number of smaller ski resorts in France that have come together to form a new skiing area.
In recent years the trend for several ski resorts to come together to form a new ski area has been booming as they are able to benefit from saved costs. Together they will fund ski lifts as well as combine their marketing efforts and have tourist offices that are joined together. This trend is also popular in Switzerland where several ski resorts have also come together to form ski areas.
Italy is another area where this is common and the formation of The Aosta Valley brought together a great many individual resorts and now they benefit from a collaboration of their resources. Lake Annecy Ski Resorts is the latest group to become a part of this trend.
This is a wonderfully historic part of France and is easily reached from Geneva airport in under an hour by car. Those who’ve been to the region will know it is one of the most beautiful places to stay.
Unlike many of the collaborations mentioned here, this grouping is not some giant artificial ski resort, but more a collection of small hamlets which make you feel as if the modern world is far away. That said, there are a great many ski runs that stretch over 200 km and there are 85 lifts servicing the area. Snow cannons ensure that there is consistently good snow.
