What's Your Question?
The Best Ski Vacation Packages
All-inclusive ski vacation packages offer huge advantages for travelers. They often include flight, lodging, lift tickets and transportation. Grouping the services together saves you the time and stress of making the ski and travel arrangements. It’s also cheaper than paying for each part of the trip separately.
Big Sky, Montana
Consider heading to Montana. Big Sky, Montana is a popular skiing destination and one you might want to consider for your trip. Ski resort vacation packages in this area offer 5,512 acres of snowy terrain for skiing, snowboarding and tubing. Look for discounts on kids’ skiing gear and lift tickets, if you’re taking the family. As in all resort areas, avoid the holidays which are peak season with higher prices based on supply and demand.
Park City, Utah
Utah has some awesome ski resorts and slopes. Park City, Utah offers skiers variety with three mountains fifteen minutes apart. Condos for lodging let you cook meals in if you want to save on cash. Or if you prefer, the area has plenty of restaurants for dining out. The nearby Salt Lake City airport is convenient for air travel. Keep in mind that mid-week flying is usually cheaper than weekend flights at most airports.
California is another state to look into for ski packages. Heavenly, California is another skiing paradise with 4,800 acres of powdery ski terrain to check out for your vacation. The area boasts magnificent views of Lake Tahoe, which is an added plus for nature lovers. After hitting the slopes during the day, you can try your luck at gambling in the nearby town of Stateline, Nevada for a little nightlife.
Okemo, Vermont is well-known for the family-friendly atmosphere for skiers of all ages. It’s a low-key option with less crowds and a calmer setting for a family vacation. Look for cheaper lodging and discounted ski lift tickets. Bring your own ski equipment to save on rental fees. Book early in the season or at the end for the best prices.
Low-Cost Vacation Packages
If you want to go easy on your wallet, consider booking a ski package ahead of your trip. Resorts offer deals at various times throughout the year to generate interest and to beef up presale numbers. Be sure to research in August and February, which are typically big months for ski deals. The risk is that you won’t know the exact ski conditions that far out, but the deals could be worth it.

France ski holidays & resorts
France's sensational skiing
France is the most popular Alpine country for British skiers and snowboarders and for good reason. The country took advantage of being comparatively late to join the pantheon of ski nations and unlike Austria and Switzerland, where skiing evolved gradually from mountain villages - France didn’t build many of its resorts until the 1960s. This meant it was possible to select the highest, most snow-sure places to ski in the country. Offering picturesque scenery, varied ski areas resorts and charming traditional alpine villages, France never fails to tick all the right boxes.

Where to ski in France
Best for beginners.
With a large selection of green and blue pistes as well as designated nursery areas, La Plagne spoils for choice when it comes to beginners skiing. The well-designed resort comprises some ten villages, each with its own character and infrastructure, meaning there’s somewhere new to explore every day.
Flaine’s reassuring location in a snow-bowl and excellent snow record means beginner skiers and boarders needn’t be concerned about icy conditions underfoot. The ski school in Flaine has an excellent reputation for both adult and child tuition making it an ideal resort for families too.
La Clusaz is a traditional, pretty village and is an ideal resor t if you’re looking for a short transfer from Geneva. The resort offers some great opportunities for beginner skiing, and we’d highly recommend visiting Beauregard - consisting of gentle blue and green slopes overlooking some amazing views of the Aravis ski region.
Best for Families
Expect to be personally welcomed to the traditional Alpine market town of Morzine . This French resort has been awarded the Familles Plus label due to its impeccable childcare services, fantastic facilities, activities and family friendly accommodation. There are many age categorised opportunities – on and off slope – so you and your children can make the most of your time on the mountains.
Les arcs is the perfect choice for families looking for easy access to its large ski area as many properties provide ski-in ski-out access to the slopes. If you’re bringing the teenagers, we’d recommend visiting the largest of the four Arcs – Arc 1800 – as the range of activities and Après are just as good as the opportunities to ski. But if you’re looking for a little more traditional and on the quiet side, Arc 1950 is a pedestrianised village with plenty of facilities for younger children.
Best for Après
If you want to experience some of the best après alongside your skiing or snowboarding, it’s no doubt that Val Thorens is the place to stay. Visit the largest underground nightclub in the Alps, Le Malaysia, or take a climb and enjoy a local beer in the highest pub in Europe, the Frog and Roast Beef. Or maybe sit back, relax and take in the views from one of the many bar terraces across the resort. No matter your taste, Val Thorens has something for everyone.
Best for Groups
Situated in the Southern French Alps, Les Deux Alpes and Alpe d’Huez offer you and your group the ideal balance of active and passive itinerary. Both resorts offer a range of mixed ability slopes and a variety of excursions from sleigh rides to paragliding. Alpe d’Huez has a selection of attractive chalets and apartments that can accommodate larger group sizes, whilst Les Deux Alpes offers over 200km of longs ski runs as well as one of the largest snow parks in the French Alps.
Best for Snowboarders
Serre Chevalier and Chamonix offer some truly excellent opportunities for snowboarders looking to ride in a great natural freestyle terrain. Serre Chevalier forms an organic playground well suited to more confident boarders and is great for powder. Chamonix offers a variety of tree runs and exhilarating off piste, and the different level slopes and quality of snow means the resort has runs to cater for all levels.
Snow in France
With altitudes reaching above 3000m, Val d’lsere and neighbouring resort Tignes are guaranteed excellent snow all season long. Thanks to their elevation and mostly north facing runs, they’re some of the most snow sure resorts in France. And if the unpredictable weather were to bring the worst, both resorts have an impressive network of snow cannons waiting to ensure the go ahead of your ski plans.
Largest Ski Areas
If you’re looking to ski big, Courchevel is a key gateway to the vast area of the 'Les Trois Vallées (The Three Valleys) which is arguably the biggest linked ski region in the world, its only rival being the Portes du Soleil network of ski areas (with Avoriaz and Morzine at its heart). The Three Valleys is dominated by four major resorts: Courchevel, Méribel , Les Menuires and Val Thorens. Each of these four resorts has more than enough terrain to keep you happily occupied for a week or more during a skiing holiday in France, so the opportunity to ski all four provides you unlimited permutations.
Two Nation Skiing
We are very excited to include two-nation skiing with the resorts of Montgenèvre and La Rosière . Take advantage of your flights into Turin and the short transfers by visiting one of these resorts, where you’re given the opportunity to ski in both France and Italy during your stay – why limit yourself to one country when you can ski in two?

A well established favourite for UK skiers, some come purely for its awesome range of challenging skiing. Others are more interested in the resort's well earned fame as an apres ski paradise. However, we believe most will simply revel in a resort that continually manages to combine both these strengths better than anywhere else in the ski world.

For those seeking a central base in the world class Three Valleys area, Méribel offers the ultimate position.

Picturesque Morzine is an established favourite. This is due to an appealing and highly unusual mix of charming, traditional Savoyard village centre with easy access to a modern and truly enormous ski area. Only a short transfer from the airport, Morzine is ideal for families.
A high, traffic free resort, at the heart of the Portes du Soleil. All our properties offer doorstep skiing making this resort a superbly convenient base from which to enjoy this fantastic ski area.

Skiing in France
Ski resorts in France, like the ski terrain, are massively varied, meaning there is something to cater for every possible taste. Many of the larger ski resorts are purpose-built, so they are superbly located, with extensive and well-maintained ski areas, at altitudes that guarantee reliable snow conditions, and with many properties fantastically positioned to offer easy access to the slopes. One downside to this kind of resort can be the slightly unattractive architecture where concrete apartment blocks, hastily constructed in the boom of the 60s and 70s, contrast against the magnificent beauty of their alpine setting. However, the fantastic skiing in France means such resorts are some of the best in the world.
That said, for every purpose-built ski resort in France, there are many smaller and more traditionally styled villages with good access to exceptional skiing. Although proximity to lifts may not be as good as in the purpose-built resorts, the tranquillity offered by a ski holiday in an authentic French mountain village can be well worth the extra effort.

ski holidays found in France
France is and has always been the top choice for British skiers. It’s easy to see why, the ski areas are big the skiing is high and snow sure and the ski lifts are fast. Most of the ski resorts are easy to reach whether you choose to travel by plane, train or car.
The most popular ski holiday type in French ski resorts are catered chalets, we offer over 1200 different ski chalets most of which are in France. France also has more than its fair share of quality hotels and the widest choice of self-catered apartments. More and more of our clients are now booking a Club Med all-inclusive skiing holiday . Club Med is a French company that’s delivering such great value for money that nearly one in 10 holidays we now sell is to a Club Med resort hotel.
Popular French Ski Resorts
We love the large linked ski areas such the Three Valleys with 600 km of pistes which links Meribel , Courchevel and the lofty Val Thorens , Europe’s highest ski resort. Other popular ski areas include the Espace Killy which connects Frances number one ski resorts of Val d’Isere and Tignes .
The Portes du Soleil is the world’s largest international linked ski area, with 600 km of popular ski resorts on the French/Swiss border with popular ski resorts such as Morzine , Les Gets and Avoriaz .
The Paradis ski area is the latest of Frances mega linked ski areas and brings together the Les Arcs and La Plagne ski areas to the perfect intermediate ski area. The Grand Massif ski area is little visited (by British skiers) and is a gem that more skiers should visit, the most popular ski resort in this ski area is Flaine .
Don’t miss out on the many ski resorts in France that aren’t big linked ski areas, Most offer over 150km and include ski resorts such as Valmorel , Alpe d’Huez , Les Deux Alpes and Serre Chevalier which are all popular ski resorts with our clients.
France is a good choice for a family skiing holiday , there are plenty of catered ski chalets, some of which have a crèche with childcare available. Club Med also include childcare and full day ski lessons when booking one of their all-inclusive skiing holiday.
Every ski resort will offer some easy runs, but choosing the wrong ski resort could mean you are skiing on just one ski run all week or face sections of steep terrain getting from one easy ski run to the next.
France features plenty of fantastic ski resorts perfect for beginners such as Avoriaz , Courchevel , La Rosiere & Les Deux Alpes
Choosing the right ski resort for intermediate skiers very much depends on your skills and inclination.
You could book one of the ski resorts with a large ski area such as the ski resorts in the Three Valley ski area, which with 600km of piste means you can ski a different area each day. You don’t have to choose one of the big named ski resorts like Courchevel, La Tania is on the same local ski pass and has some of the best runs for intermediate skiers.
Few ski resorts will have enough difficult ski runs to keep most advanced happy all week long, what gets an advanced skiers juices flowing are long runs, preferably steep black, long runs. Ski resorts such as Chamonix with extensive off-piste skiing, or Val d’Isere with some of the best lift-served off-piste skiing are natural choices for advanced skiers, but these are well publicised and after fresh snow, the best steep runs get crowded with advanced skiers.
Catered Ski Chalet Holidays In France
By far and away the most popular ski holiday in France is the Catered ski chalet holiday. It’s one of the most cost-effective ways to spend a week in the mountains. Tour operators rent mountain ski chalets for the season and often staff them with students on a gap year, or more mature couples who cook and clean. Typically a week’s holiday on an off-peak week costs around £600-700 that’s around £100 a day for a bed for a week, included are return flights and transfers and 6x three-course evening meals within most cases unlimited wine, 7 x breakfasts and afternoon tea and cakes.
Self-catering Apartments in France
Some French apartments are like shoeboxes, a 19sqm apartment for 4 people can’t be much fun and certainly won’t give any elbow room. However, in recent years, developments such as at Les Arc 1950 have seen the quality and space available improve beyond all recognition, and for skiers on a budget or who prefer to cook their own meals, booking a self-catered skiing holiday is a really great alternative to staying in a hotel or ski chalet.
Club Med All-inclusive Ski Holidays in France
Nearly one in ten ski holidays we now sell is with the French tour operator Club Med, we believe their holidays represent exceptional value for money and the quality of food and drinks from the bar, ski lessons and ski passes which are also included makes sense for families in particular. Club Med ski holidays are more like a resort than just a hotel. We are sure that the all-inclusive nature of Club Med keeps most clients in the hotel for the duration of their holidays apart from when they are skiing. It makes sense! As soon as you step outside you need your wallet.
Après Ski in French Ski Resorts
Nearly all French ski resorts make an effort to offer a good après ski side, although we still prefer the Austrian way best. Après ski is in two parts in France, the immediately post ski party of which the Folie Douce now operating in Five resorts is the clear winner. Later in the evening when the bars come to life. If a party is important for you when skiing pick your ski resort carefully as not all ski resorts in France are equal when it comes to party time.

What do we love about skiing in France?
When you think of a ski holiday, for many, the first place the mind shoots to is the French Alps. France has long been the most popular ski holiday destination for, not only the Brits but skiers and snowboarders from all over the world. This is down to a multitude of factors; with an enviable location in the Alpine region, the world's largest and most varied ski areas, and the most advanced resort infrastructures in the world, it's no wonder then that French ski resorts are consistently at the top of world resort polls for almost everything! Ski Weekends fly to over 21 French ski resorts providing weekend, mid-week and week-long stays to a huge selection of accommodation types. Whether you're after French ski chalets, self-catered apartments, great value 2* hotels, or 4* and 5* luxury, we are certain that you'll find something to meet your preferences and budget requirements. Take a look below at the various French ski resorts we fly to and make your selection!
Ski Weekends resorts in France
No other ski region on earth quite matches the 3 Valleys. With a whopping 600km of fully inter-connected slopes and terrain for all standards, it is the planet’s largest ski area. Those stunning statistics however only tell part of the story. Each of those three valleys is a ski region in its own right. You can choose between the Courchevel Valley, skiing from the open slopes of sophisticated 1850 into the tree-lined runs which take you into the characterful lower villages, where you’ll find more chalets and lovely 3* hotels. The central Meribel Valley, which has its strong British connections and links to the spa resort of Brides Les Bains . Finally, the Belleville Valley with family-friendly Les Menuires and Reberty , as well as Europe’s highest and most hi-tech ski resort, Val Thorens . The 3 Valleys is on top of the world for more than just its size. The region has been getting better and better every year for decades now, regularly fine-tuning what it offers and how it delivers that service.
For example, millions are spent each summer in building even better, faster and more comfortable lifts to whisk you back up the slopes more efficiently and safely. The Meribel Valley, for example, runs more gondola lifts than any other ski area on earth, and the whole 3 Valleys have invested heavily in special extra safety features on their lifts making them the safest in the world for children to use. Off the slopes there’s a vibrant mix of opportunities in the various resort villages – you can find, some of the largest aprés-ski options in the French Alps and a vast choice of dining possibilities including lots of Michelin-starred choices. It truly is a phenomenal ski region.
Portes du Soleil
The Portes du Soleil ski region – meaning ‘gates of the sun’ – is one of the world’s largest, with 400 miles of groomed piste shared by a dozen ski resorts on both sides of the France-Switzerland border. It’s also one of the most northerly ski regions in the Alps, meaning it’s closer to Geneva and for drivers from the UK and also it has a great snowfall record. Most of the resorts are traditional villages, rich in character and ambience, and they include some of the world’s best-known ski destinations including Morzine and Les Gets . However, France’s only completely car-free purpose-built resort, Avoriaz , is also here. You can enjoy a different ski safari every day!
Val d’Isère is, of course, one of the world’s best-known resorts. Not only is it a member of a very elite group of half a dozen ski areas worldwide which have hosted World Cup, World Championship and Olympic ski events, it’s also one of the world’s top choices for a great ski holiday as it has it all – world-class ski terrain and a superb resort base. It also has an excellent snow record with the high altitude of the village and the glacier-crowned slopes towering above making it a much better bet than most in early and late season.
Sharing the amazing Espace Killy area with neighbouring Val d’Isere, Tignes has been purpose built to offer doorstep skiing to one of the world’s great ski areas. No other French resort has a better opening record. In fact, it’s the only French resort open for most of the autumn, with skiing guaranteed on its glacier slopes from early October through to May. It’s even open for a few months in the heat of summer. Tignes is big enough to offer something for everyone – beginners, piste-mile-crunching intermediates, freestylers looking for the best terrain parks and even the most demanding advanced skiers. Adrenaline junkies will revel in the numerous unusual attractions including a recently added bungee catapult rope – ski, board, or sledge off a downhill ramp and into the void – with the famous elasticated ropes attached. Who could resist that?
Once voted the world’s most popular resort, La Plagne is certainly one of the biggest and best ski resorts out there. It has 10 different base villages ranging from traditional valley villages to state-of-the-art purpose-built ‘ski stations.’ That’s before you consider it’s part of the giant Paradiski region, connected by a spectacular double-decker cable car to neighbouring Les Arcs and creating one of the world’s three biggest ski regions in the process with 425km of piste between them. This massive area covers every type of terrain imaginable and is also one of the planet’s most snowsure, thanks to high altitude, glacier-capped slopes at the top of its huge lift-served vertical. For advanced skiers and snowboarders, the freeride terrain down from the Bellecôte is a must-ride, and everyone should have at least one go on the Olympic Bobsleigh Run where various options include a taxi-bob ride behind a professional driver in a proper bob, or going down with three friends in a self-steering bob raft.
The Haute Savoie region is home to some fantastic resorts, including Chamonix , Megève , Flaine , Les Houches and La Clusaz . Possibly the most famous, no other ski resort has quite the global appeal of Chamonix. Located below Western Europe’s highest peak, Mont Blanc, and a favourite with Brits for over 150 years, it’s not only one of the best ski areas on Earth, it’s, fortunately, one of the quickest and easiest to reach too!
Megeve is another great option. The original leading French resort, Megève was modelled as a ski resort to rival Switzerland’s St Moritz and it succeeds in being the chicest and atmospheric of French ski areas, centred on its ancient square and cobbled streets. You’ll find enticing shops and gourmet restaurants here – indeed Megve has a reputation for offering the best dining in the French Alps (which some argue means the entire European Alps).
Located in a famed snow pocket and within a giant powder bowl, Flaine’s founders really knew what they were doing when they created this great resort five decades ago; they even had the foresight to locate it as close as they could to Geneva Airport for very quick and easy access for a ski weekend.
Nicknamed by the Ski Weekends team as 'the hidden gem of the French Alps' La Clusaz is fast becoming known as the resort that ticks all of the boxes. Known for being one of the most authentic feeling French resorts, as well as one of the quickest and easiest to reach from the UK and from Geneva Airport, La Clusaz is also one of the oldest French ski destinations and has one of the most extensive ski areas for a traditional French resort.
