2014 ski holidays in France
A favourite among younger, trendier ski enthusiasts, France is home to countless first-rate resorts that cater to varying tastes and skill levels. With Mont Blanc looming spectacularly on the horizon, Les Arcs is an eternally popular choice, not least due to the speed skiing course leftover from the 1992 Winter Olympics. On the other side of the mountain is Chamonix, one of the oldest and most traditional resorts in the country, and a veritable haven for all manner of winter sports lovers. Those with a head for heights, meanwhile, should opt for Val Thorens, the highest ski resort in Europe. The fact that it’s got a Michelin-starred restaurant close by - the heavenly Oxalys - isn’t a bad bonus!
