Samoëns, Grand Massif
Thanks to its geographical location, the Grand Massif enjoys abundant, regular snowfalls throughout the season, and the area is well known for the quality of the snow in spring. 80% of the slopes are north-facing, allowing the snow to lie for longer and remain in good condition. Make the most of the après restaurants situated at the top of the mountain as the main town of Samoëns cannot be reached without taking a ski lift up.
Méribel, Les Allues, France
Commanding breathtaking views and sun-drenched slopes in the afternoons, Meribel is a prime location for outdoor snowsport. Meribel also boasts a modern ski lift system, meaning that queue times are almost non-existent leaving you more time to get as many runs in as possible during the day.
Wherever you decide to go you’ll be equally calmed and left in awe of the great power these locations hold. Be sure to wrap up warm and make the most of your ski holiday.
