This is our guide to resorts in the French Alps.  It's not definitive, but it does come from many years' experience of being based in the French Alps and helping our clients, many of whom are returning customers, choose the right holiday for them. If a resort you are interested in is not listed below, you will find more details in our full list of resorts in the menu above, or why not give us a call and we would be very pleased to talk you through them.

Best for Families?

The French tourist board has created the Famille Plus (Family Plus) label, awarded to resorts that put the accent on quality and a warm welcome for families. We recommend Les Carroz, which has slopes designed for 4-6 year olds and a brand new creche, as a great resort for families with young children.  

For resorts with British ski schools, why not consider Morzine, Avoriaz

Best for Infants?

Children under 2 can be bothered by a significant change in pressure caused by an increase in altitude so we recommend you pick a resort below 1400m for their first mountain experience.

Morzine, and Les Carroz, are all low enough to give them peaceful days and nights.

Best for Snowboarders?

Don't like long, flat links?  Hate drag lifts?  Need some park action?  Most French resorts embrace boarders.

Avoriaz,and Morzine have some great park facilities and has a really friendly laid back vibe.

Best for Weekends?

The key factor here is to cut down on travel time. There are three major ski areas around 1 hour from Geneva that allow you to be on the slopes for the maximum amount of time.

Morzine in the huge Portes de Soleil, Les Carroz in the fantastically linked Grand Massif and Chamonix in the spectacular Mont Blanc region all cater for the weekend market.

Best for Parties?

If night life is top of your list, then it's definitely all happening in Chamonix, and Morzine.

Best For High Altitude?

High doesn't always necessarily mean best for snow and you are more prone to wind exposure but, if you are a height junkie, then,Chamonix provides some of the highest skiing in Europe.

Best For non Skiers?

Ski resorts aren't just about skiing and snowboarding, there are a host of activities to try in the mountains, everything from husky sledding, snowmobiling, ice driving and snow shoeing, to spa breaks and heated outdoor pools. Village resorts such as Morzine provide lots to do or why not try Les Carroz with its health spa and outdoor pool.

For a larger centre, Chamonix has lots for the non-skier, including some spectacular train trips and the oppurtunity to take the highest lift in Europe to the top of the Aguille du Midi at 3,842m.
