France

Famous for the Eiffel Tower, The Louvre, croissants and baguettes; it almost seems greedy that France also has a reputation as one of the best countries in the world to ski. The Alps, located in the east of France, famous for Western Europe’s highest mountain Mont Blanc, has an astounding number of ski areas which can almost be overwhelming when choosing. Having hosted the winter Olympics twice, and easily accessible to international airports, this area is a fantastic ski destination for Rocketski trips.

If you’re looking for a taste of traditional French culture with a twist, combined with fantastic skiing conditions, lively nightlife and choice of shops and restaurants then the French Alps are an ideal location.
