Skiing Fun for Amateurs and Pros

Whether you barely manage to stay vertical on your skis or you are a pro skier simply flying down the black diamonds, you will find the perfect spot to enjoy your skiing in France. Start with the traditional skiing villages in Meribel Valley and Chamonix, take in the high altitude skiing over the stunning Alps at Val Thorens or Les Arcs. No matter where you go you are sure to come away from memorable experiences.

If you are visiting with your kids, you should take in some of the special activities designed for the young ones. For instance, children will simply love tobogganing in Meribel or racing in the mini snow mobiles. Of course, adults can find a whole lot of activities here other than skiing too. Take in some hot air ballooning, parapenting and snowshoe walking here when you return from your runs. For the more adventurous, there is always husky sledding, glacier walking and ice climbing to keep the adrenaline pumping hard.
