Which Club Med French Destination For Ski Suits You?
One reason to go to France to ski is that the lift passes are among the best value in the world. As ski passes are included in the Club Med all-inclusive price you may not notice this, but it will affect the overall price that you pay. Many of the pistes are interconnected, enabling you to ski to the max.
The snow conditions in France naturally vary from one resort to another, but on the whole they are excellent. Ski areas in France generally sit higher than in other countries, leading to superior snow conditions and longer seasons. Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe and Avoriaz repeatedly gets the most snowfall in France.
This incredible and modern resort is a recent addition to the Club Med portfolio. With a 360-degree view of the mountains, this resort is perfect for those who love scenery and snow sports.
