France is a very popular holiday destination and this is largely because it has a great deal to offer. Whether you are looking for a popular city break in Paris, or enjoying some spectacular beaches in the south, there is no doubt plenty of diversity of things to see and do in France.
One of the most popular reasons people head to France is to enjoy some skiing, and this is largely because the skiing in the area is unmatched compared to other places in the world. There are many resorts here where people can enjoy a fantastic break away in the winter.
One of the most notable ski resorts in France is Chamonix and this is probably one of the first skiing destinations that comes into people’s minds when they think of skiing in France. This resort is located at the base of Mont Blanc which is the highest mountain in Europe.
Another reason the skiing resort is so popular is that it is incredibly easy to reach as it is located very close to Geneva. Chamonix has plenty of skiing opportunities and it can be a great place for beginners to come to learn to ski, but it also has plenty to challenge more experienced skiers.
Val d’Isere is another renowned area in the French Alps. For those who’ve been skiing for a while, it provides a great deal of challenging skiing, especially when it comes to off piste opportunities.
This was the location of the 1992 Winter Olympic Games men’s downhill slope and this attracts people from all over the world every year. It is not just skiing that can be enjoyed in Val d’Isere however, and there are also plenty of opportunities for hiking, sleigh trips, as well as ice climbing and other snow based activities.
