10 beautiful ski resorts that could be Christmas cards

Here in the French Alps we’re spoilt by all the beautiful ski resorts we have. Of course, we think the most beautiful ski resorts are the French ones..but we’re biased! However, it’s no secret that many of our French slopes are as pretty as pictures. Christmas card pictures to be precise. So what better time of year to simply enjoy the splendour of our very own French Alps?

We think you’ll agree, our resorts are just too gorgeous to resist, so we’ve popped in a few handy links to our properties at each lovely snow-capped destination.

And from all of us at Madame Vacances – we wish you a very merry Christmas! And here’s to a new year filled with exploring France, from slopes to beach. Santé!

A high-altitude resort with fabulous pistes and even better views. You’re going to have to concentrate on the ski-lift here, because the views are very distracting!

Les 2 Alps benefits from its own glacier, and if that wasn’t cool enough, the resort enjoys reliable snowfall and an excess of off-piste activities.

 

Meribel
