France: for the coolest Winter imaginable

Chamonix -  skiing holidays

Skiing in France offers a real contrast in destinations between the old and the new.

Chamonix represents the old: a traditional town that was once a small farming eking out a living in the shadow of Mont Blanc until mountaineering and then skiing came along to swell its annual tourism trade beyond all imagination.

La Plagne 1800 on the other hand represents a typical modern French resort, built high up on an Alpine ledge (it sits at 1,800 metres of altitude) the town itself is not the prettiest but its functionality provides access to some fantastic skiing right up to 3,400 metres at the Bellecôte glacier and links into Les Arcs to form the huge Paradiski area.
