Sunniest and snowiest ski resorts in the French Alps

The view is breathtaking, the skiing is sublime for skiers of all levels, the off-piste powder is the best I've skied in Europe, and the hospitality and authentic Savoyard flavor of this charming French alpine village that welcomes English speaking tourists makes for lasting memories that will keep you coming back for more. The prices are great value and the... More

We recently had our ski trip here. Have been to France many years but never to this location. Friends had stayed here before and recommended the great location. I was not disappointed, the location is fantastic. Easy to get to and many ski runs to keep you busy. Each day we travelled across to Italy to extend the ski experience.... More

There are attractive aspects to this resort but I would not recommend it for anyone other then beginners and then it is limited. The links with the Italian side are poor, linked by a small red run, which is narrow and when busy not easy. After that you have to do an 8 minute long drag lift that lots of... More

It snowed for our first two days so we had loads of it. They didn't piste bash quickly, leaving everyone struggling to turn on the slopes which were soon full of large moguls as the snow was pushed into heaps. Lifts are good (mainly chairs seating 3-6 people. No queues at all even though the resort was full. Skiing over... More

The host (Nush) and her food was excellent we ate like kings the entire time... loved it! The Skiing was also really good, three of us were beginners and there were so many options... More

Southerly slopes which catch the sun (and can melt the snow) with an unreliable link to La Thuile, Italy. The link can close in high winds, which is a shame as the skiing is more varied in La Thuile. The link is via a 1.5 mile long drag lift - so the French don't make it easy for you to... More

This is an excellent ski area with a large variety of sunny open pistes and efficient lifts. If you want even more variety you can ski over to La Thuile and enjoy a whole new resort on the same lift pass. Both resorts have great mountain restaurants but beware of the wind since it is truly biting.

We have been to La Rosiere for the last two Christmases. We have been unlucky to not have snow in the resort but on the mountains it has been fine. Clear skies and warm both years. The resort has an excellent bus service that runs all day but even the furthest chalets can be reached on foot easily if you... More
