COUNTRY INFO

With massive choice and fantastic skiing, France really is the number one choice for British travellers seeking variety of skiing and excellent off piste snowboarding.

with purpose built ski resorts and snowkiting now on the menu. The excellent snow records and with ski areas open to you for all levels, a group with mixed abilities will find this the perfect country to visit. At Snowseeker, we've covered the full range of budgets and specifically chosen several levels of hotels and apartments to suit all pockets.

If your snowboarding in Alpe de Huez on a budget or looking for an 'Absolutely Fabulous' week in Val D'sere ala Patsy and Eddie, France is suitable for all.

Most of the resorts are modern and well developed, so yes, some can look like a 1950's interpretation of what the future would be like and this means you won't be going to France for the traditional ski architecture! To sum it up, you'll just want to be out on the piste, smashing those runs.

Getting there is easy with flights from all the major UK airports and we can also organise self drive trips, with hotels on the way down if you need us to. A trip to France is all about flexibility and being easily accessible. As with all our activity holidays, we at Snowseeker will hand-build your trip to get your holiday, your way.
