It is home to 'Les Trois Vallees' (Three Valleys) ski area, which is the largest ski area in the world, covering Courchevel, La Tania, Meribel, Val Thorens & several others. France ski resorts also have the biggest lift systems and piste networks in the world, making it the number one ski & snowboarding holiday destination. No other country offers such a variety.
France also offers the highest ski resorts in Europe, virtually guaranteeing excellent snow cover throughout the season. Many ski resorts in France also offer slopes of varying difficulty so are particularly suited to Groups and Families of varying ability.
Most French ski resort accommodation has been purpose built close to the slopes. Many units offer the unrivalled convenience of ski-in, ski-out.
