The highest peaks in Western Europe, including the mythical Mont Blanc ; all the services you need, vibrant descents with which you can live all the excitement of winter sports in the first person ... If you still do not know how to celebrate New Year's Eve, but you are very clear that you want to give everything on your skis or your board Snow , we have for you a perfect proposal: a ski getaway at the end of the year in the French Alps.
If you dare to spend a few days in this unique destination, you have two recommended options alike: skiing in the northern French Alps or in the southern French Alps . The former extend from Chamonix and Portes du Soleil to Tarentaise and the ski area of Les 3 Vallées - the latter with 600 km distributed in 330 marked slopes - while the southern Alps comprise ski resorts south of Grenoble to the coast Mediterranean
If you opt for the Northern Alps, you will have at your fingertips some of the most famous ski resorts in France, such as Tignes, Val d'Isere and Meribel, Chamonix, Courchevelo Val Thorens, in Les 3 Vallées . In addition to high altitude resorts, smaller resorts are also waiting for you here at lower, less crowded and much cheaper rates, so you can book your holiday in the snow at unbeatable prices. Good proof of this are the resorts of La Clusaz and Areches-Beaufort . How to get to the northern French Alps? It's very simple, since you have airports in Geneva, Chambery and Lyon.
The other possibility to enjoy skiing at the end of the year in the French Alps is to decide for those who are further south. There are many reasons to bet on them, although here we remind you of two compelling reasons: 300 days of sunshine per year and quality snow throughout the season. Once there, choose between the peaks of the Écrins massif , at 4,102 m altitude, or the mountains of the Mercantour National Park. From Grenoble airport, you can reach the area in just over an hour. And if you prefer to ski in Serre Chevalier , you will reach this resort in just over two hours.
