But why stay inside when you have Europe at your door! Yes winter in Europe doesn’t have the allure as what summer may have but don’t let that stop you. Snow falling on historic buildings, mulled wine and Europe’s most epic sights, trust us winter is where it’s at!

With 8000km of piste spread over 300 resorts and some of the biggest names in world skiing, France has justifiable claims to be the leader of the European ski scene. Around thirty percent of the key ski resorts on the globe are in France and it has the largest linked ski areas in the world meaning that you ski numerous resorts with one pass.
