What’s more scenic place to learn to ski, than in the French Alps? The French know how to do everything with style

and skiing is certainly no exception. Learning to ski gives you every excuse to do a little shopping to make sure you buy clothes which keep you warm.

So let’s have a look at such locales in French Alps that will get you soaked into their lovely charm:


Tignes is an absolute gem of a ski resort.
Tignes is part of the Espace Killy ski area in the Tarentaise Valley in the French Alps. It has over 300km of ski run of compacted snow.

Tignes is a resort, with many different villages that hang under the label of Tignes. Tignes La Lavachet, Tignes La Lac, Tignes Val Claret and Tignes Le Brevieres, all house chalets, hotels and bars, so it can be quite complicated choosing an area for those, that don’t know the locations of each of the villages. We would recommend for La Lavachet and Le Lac as they are in the middle of the lift system and loads of booze.


Megève began as the vision of Noémie de Rothschild who early last century transformed the Savoyard farming village into the chic holiday resort it is now. It has multiple upscale restaurants and five-star hotels and relaxing mountain spas.

You will find great ski schools/instructors to help you out with the skiing down the slopes.

Courchevel 1850

Courchevel 1850 is another Ski resort with Michelin-starred restaurants, chalets and hotels.
It has some of the best groomed skiing slopes in the world. There are multitudes of super-efficient lifts to cover one of the world’s largest ski areas known as Les Trois Valleés.
There are highly qualified ski instructors from all over the world who teach you skiing.

These are some of the best resorts in the French Alps where you can come for a great vacation and learn to ski with panache.
