The resort

The picture book of snowy wilderness is awash with pine forests and runs to suit all ages and abilities. You’ll be best off hitting the green slopes, but there are some edgier black runs if you want to dabble. Icing sugar-like, the snow dusts the quaint timber chalets you’ll bed down in.

Olympic standards

On the thick beds of Les Saisies snow, the cross country events of the 1992 Winter Olympics were held. Since, it’s been popular for families, beginners and intermediates, with coaching sessions for newbies to learn to freestyle, and easy access to the basic slopes. It really is a haven for Nordic ski.

Kids’ kingdom

If you’ve got the little ones in tow, the nursery slopes will be a top place to start. But if you’re looking to inspire the youngsters with a bit more imagination, then head to the Elf’s Forest and ring the bell to his hut and see if he’ll let you inside. It’s a great post-piste hideaway for giddy kids.

Village life

There’s an animated village atmosphere in this French retreat. With bars, grills and crêperies aplenty, you won’t go peckish, and the traditional restaurants will suit both the budget-savvy and well-heeled. Beyond rustic French dishes, there are chances to enjoy a spot of sledding or night skiing, too.

The highlights

  • Plenty of nursery slopes for beginners, as well as snow parks for experts.
  • An exciting après-ski scene with bars and eateries.
  • Terrific stretching views of Mont Blanc.
