Why you need to book a skiing holiday in the French Alps
We know everyone’s bucket lists look different. Maybe you’re and adventurer who can’t wait for your next bungee jump or skydive. Maybe you’re an avid hiker, ticking off top trails around the world. Maybe you’re a World Heritage site visitor, a diver, a beach hopper.
Whichever type of traveller you are, we think we might be able to convince you why you need to go skiing in the Alps before you kick the bucket.
Where to start, right? The Alps are massive. Do you go to Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Slovenia, Lichtenstein, Monaco, or France? Not that you’d be disappointed by any one of those locations, but there’s a specific charm around the French Alps that we just can’t pinpoint, or get enough of for that matter.
All the feels
Okay, all skiing and overly activeness aside, a ski holiday in the French Alps also includes that European atmosphere and alpine charm, with people from all over the world strutting their mountain gear such as ski jackets, boots and beanies and speaking their various languages but also mingling with each other after a day’s ski session over a beer or a glass of wine.
There is a particular special emotion that goes along with the above mentioned scenario which is quite difficult to put into words.
All the food
Add to that the fantastic French mountain food, which is obviously enjoyed with wonderful French wine to further warm the heart.
You can prepare yourself for a proper French feel with numerous mountain and village-based restaurants and we bet you’ll quickly fall in love with mouthwatering French dishes such as raclette, fondue, and tartiflette. Not to mention all the cheese and bread and chocolaty treats… these are a few of our favourite things…
All the powder
Many of France’s mountain ranges are over 2000m high, so that means the country offers some of the most snow-sure resorts in Europe as well as fantastic snow quality. C the World offers an unbeatable week of skiing at Tignes where 300km of prepared piste awaits in the French Alps. And yes, there’s something special for all levels of skiers and snowboarders.
In addition, travellers stay in cosy chalets and a highlight for many is defrosting and unwinding in a chalet hot tub and spa after hard day’s work on the slopes.
Now that, friends, is what we call an epic holiday. Best of all is you don’t have to keep reading and dreaming about it – you can actually do it!
