Find Your Ideal Ski Resort - in France!

When it comes to enjoying the winter season and skiing in France, the choices are many. The same goes if you're a non-skier and France Montagnes makes it easier with their Find Your Ideal Ski Resort app.

To help narrow down your search, you can choose by: location, type of skiing, family, and spa requirements. The search then narrows down further to specific activities and services you're looking for in your France ski trip.

France Montagnes provides information on every ski resort in France categorized by location:
The website also provides links to all 270 ski resort webcams in France so you can check out the conditions before you leave on your trip.

It's interesting how France ski resorts have adapted to the non-skiing crowd, or less-skiing crowd. According to France Montagnes, skiers used to enjoy 6 to 8 hours per day of skiing in the 1980's which has now evolved into only 4 hours per day. France's ski resorts now offer flexible fixed rates for skiing the slopes ranging from 2 to 5 consecutive hours in length; you pay for only what you ski.

Many resorts are now offering alternate programs for non-skiers which include fun cultural activities like guided tours to local churches and points of interest. Interactive farm tours allow adults and children to enjoy learning about animals and farm life; they can even enjoy hands-on experiences like making cheese.

When the day is done, grab some delicious chocolat chaud and enjoy the festive camaraderie. If you're stopping in Paris, be sure to think about purchasing a Paris Pass. Bon voyage!
