Chamonix ski resort
Chamonix hosted the first Winter Olympics back in 1924 and has remained at the very forefront of mountain sports. Being a proper town in a socking great valley, it’s a bit of a Marmite resort: Some don’t like the fact the slopes aren’t all seamlessly linked in one area, while others can’t get enough of the heady variety. Chamonix is one of the coolest and most infamous ski areas. With a large population, Chamonix-Mont-Blanc is the fourth largest commune in France and therefore has an established community and thriving town. A bounty of activities are available, including lots of other sports aside from skiing, paintballing and museum visits. Chamonix is endlessly entertaining

La Plagne ski resort
La Plagna ski resort is an ideal resort for intermediate skiers, La Plagne has a heavy proportion of blue runs. It does, however, still offer some more challenging terrains and sufficient pistes for beginners. Developed in the 60s to save the valley’s crumbling mining and agriculture industries, today La Plagne boasts beautiful views, seamless connections to Les Arcs and a bobsleigh, luge and skeleton track put in place for the 1992 Albertville winter Olympics. Boredom rarely occurs here, whether you prefer easy-going blues, knee-deep powder or freestyle. Especially when you factor in the whole area pass, which totals a whopping 425km shared with Les Arcs. Even at the beginning or end of
the season there’s plenty to ski, thanks to the Bellecôte and Chiaupe glaciers and 70% of the slopes being above 2000m. And when a resort’s made up of so many villages, you can ski home to the base that suits you:

La Clusaz ski resort
Only an hour's drive from Geneva airport just over the border in Switzerland, La Clusaz is often overlooked by skiers headed for the glitzier and more famous Trois Vallées resorts. But there's plenty to draw skiers here: well-groomed intermediate and advanced slopes and the challenging long runs in the resort's La Balme area. An old alpine village near the Swiss border, La Clusaz’s participation in winter sports dates back to 1907. La Clusaz was anciently established as a village specializing in
agriculture, particularly herding sheep. This resort therefore keeps it historic charm as well as having developed into a quality ski resort.
