Why going to the french Alps?
France is an excellence choice for any type of winter holiday in the mountains, home to the world’s largest ski areas with endless kilometres of slopes for young and old. French resorts are also often high-altitude – so you’ll wake up to a winter wonderland every morning.
The Paradiski domain in the Tarentaise Valley boasts 400km of pistes centred around two main resorts, Les Arcs and La Plagne, linked by the impressive 200-capacity Vanoise Express gondola which crosses from one to the other in under 10 minutes. Les Arcs’ four villages – 1600, 1800, 1950 and 2000 – are all car free, and in addition to their excellent downhills, a new snowpark known as Mile 8 in Les Arcs 1800 offers a toboggan run, freestyle obstacle course and forest-themed slope, as well as a special area for beginners and children. For more peace and quiet, pop over to Peisey-Vallandry where there are usually fewer queues for the lifts.
The perfect family holiday
La Plagne, meanwhile, has its own network of eight villages including peaceful Plagne Soleil, high-altitude Aime 2000 and Plagne Montalbert, which has proven very popular with families in recent years. Other linked resorts in Paradiski include Champagny-en-Vanoise, Les Coches and Montchavin. The highest point of the domain is at around 3,250 metres, making it all-round fantastically snow-sure.
Over in the Maurienne Valley, the vast and diverse area of Les Sybelles is gaining traction with skiers and snowboarders, with 310km of slopes perfect for beginners and children but also including exciting black descents, and some great off-piste trails to tackle with a guide. The domain covers the villages of Le Corbier, St Jean-d’Arves, Les Bottières, La Toussuire, St Colomban-des-Villards and St Sorlin-d’Arves, the latter being the most challenging.
